Labor Day Forrest and TWS (Texas World Speedway) Ride

Anyone interested in doing a ride to TWS (Texas World Speedway) for a parade lap via the forest? I was thinking making a run? Noob to moderate pace depending on who wants to go. Hit the forest early in the AM be at TWS (Texas World Speedway) by 11:00 Parade lap or two then back. If interested please state your choice of pace, noob or moderate. Depending on we may even have two groups. Anybody interested?

Moderate, if I don't actually go do the td. I'm getting my forks worked on this week and I was thinking of riding up there just to have the susp. Set. I didn't know they will be doing parade laps.

I'm up for a forest ride with a stop at Yankee's if they're open. No offense, but the track day organization at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on Monday has really lame parade laps, if they'll have them at all. No ride to TWS (Texas World Speedway) for me

I have confirmed with Dave that he will conduct a parade lap for anyone interested barring any incidents at the track. I thought it would be good to do becasue this year is likely the last time we get to ride at TWS (Texas World Speedway). TWS (Texas World Speedway) is currently refusing to accept reservations for events beyond June of next year. So it may the last hurrah for a ride on the Texas WOOOOORLD SPEEDWAY.. SPEEDway... speedway....

The pace of the parade lap is normally determined by the lowest level of PPE of the group taking it. Show up in jeans and it will be VERY SLOW, slow enough to seem like its all straights, show up in leather onesies or two pieces and it will be quick enough imply there are actual corners


Bevo You are always welcome to join up for the first half of the ride.


Once I have an idea of who may me interrested we'll set the meet spot and times.

Standard Moderate pace rules apply. Mechanically sound, road legal bike, insurance, Helmet, Jacket, gloves, knee protection, over the ankle boots.

Interested

I'm interested. Depends on the forecast come Monday. I've done Rain+The forest before, and it was no fun . Loading a wadded up bike into the back of a truck....huddling under the trees for cover....As far as location goes, I'm used to meeting up at the Bucee's in Cypress with Jimrad, Bevo and crew. It's a long ride for me wherever we meet, so I don't really care. Moderate pace preferred, although I'm fine with a high noob/low moderate ride.

Still in, back up bike

I'm still in, provide the pace isn't too crazy. Duc is out of comission with a cut tire (see other thread, and I had to leave it at Mancuso. I'd like to bring the KTM (a 620 Supermoto, tops out somewhere in the 110-115 range) if you guys think it could keep up. What do you think?

I have another reason for wanting to go to TWS (Texas World Speedway).
I'm doing COTA next weekend and I'm going to mount my home built GoPro mounts (that I made for TD's and have yet to use) and making sure they will clear with tech inspection. So if I need to make changes I will have time.

Its looking like the weather isn't going to be good in the morning. Dave is a go for the parade lap, but its looking like rain in the morning.

Assuming the forecast is wrong and there is no rain in the morning
We will meet here.
http://goo.gl/maps/KaDT7
Riders Meeting 8:30 KSU 8:45
Route provided to all at riders meeting. Pace will be moderate(which will be real relaxed for most of you.) Check your tires, even without more rain in the morning it may still be a little damp. Please have a valid Emergency Contact# as well. See you in the AM.

No problem, at all you'll be fine,

noob/relaxed: SL on the straights, yellow posted in corners depending on group
moderate: SL, maybe 10-15+ on straights and curves
brisk: + on the straights, up to double the yellow sign into curves
spirited: race track on the street basically

if the weather is nasty early my plan B is to ride straight to TWS (Texas World Speedway) and then do a reverse forest root later in the day. weather permitting
