1.4 miles for a track is pretty short... I usually find tracks that are 2 to 2.5 miles to be the best...

i'm with you chemikaze.

but i also like some short tracks, i think i'll hold my comments until we see what GSS has to offer once completed. until then, i'll hold my pennies until they unveil their final creation.

i realize it was basically like a sneak peak viewing of the track for us, so i'm eager to see what will happen in the next few months with the track.

i thought the track was killer for motards ! too bad there wasnt any passing allowed... the big bikes would have really gotten their feelings hurt ! in my opinion it would be excellent for motards and mini's. i wouldnt have wanted to ride my 1000 there at all. my only concern was the track surface. it seemed to get looser at the end of the day. i will be interested to see what happens after more rubber gets laid down. but all in all i had a good time sliding the motard around

Thought the track management and Ride Smart restrict passing at the turns, there were still some guys did nasty passing.
One stuffed me inside and cut me off.
That was not a good passing.
:eh:

There were guys passing me in the turns too. I thought the rules are only for the first couple of sessions for level4 and level2 &1 were no passing period.

Did you abide the rules?





























NOT.I only see you wheelie out of the turn but didn't see the backing in the turn. There were times that you passed me. I think there were a couple of times people are passing me in the corners too.

yeah, i was lookin forward to see you slide through the turns jody....

i agree with you about grandsport though....it would make a badass track for mini's and motards. i'd be a little weary about taking anything above 600's to that track.

i'm slammed here at the shop....i'm gonna try and swing by to donate a rear shock to the white xr100.

my rear tire is leaking air through the valve stem also, i think maybe a pinched tube. so i'll have to get that fixed.

if i can get it fixed, i'll probably come out and play for a bit. if not, i'll just swing by and hang out for a bit.
