between trackdays....

what the are you supposed to do to suppress the need to go to the track. i mean yeah, there's plenty of trackdays out there, but when you miss 1, get weathered out, or they cancel 1....it seems like forever.

riding twisties don't cut it for me, because you can't push it, and it's a public road with lots of road hazards of course. plus i don't like speeding tickets....so what is one supposed to do?

anybody on here an actual member to one of the tracks? can you ride sundays if you are a member?

TMGP is my new attempt to fill in some of those gaps. But getting some buddies together in a parking lot with some mini's would be fun. Or go buy yourself a shifter kart (buy me one too while you're at it Tony). Besides that, needlessly work on and clean the bike. Read about riding techniques or mods. Dream about the day you'll be faster than me.

TMGP, CMRA and Trackdays should fill your schedule up to no end and with your CMRA license you can go out to Oak Hill anytime there is not a scheduled event.

Poppin' wheelies on the freeway is fun. Just look back to make sure there ain't no fuzz then pop'er up and impress the kiddies in the car.
