I was ready for a break! I'm ready to get going again, but not too eager...

The whole TD schedule + racing was too much this year!

Winter is what dirt bikes are for!

Dirty bikes give other great skill too. Like wheelies. Over ant hills. On PD recruiting posters.

I'm at 146 mph in the GT3 at the transition for turn 1. I can only imagine what the gixxer would be like. Does the front end come up on the hump between 3 and 4? I've been in cars that got very light over it. Turn 7 must be a blast with all the camber advantage..... I can't wait.

My fastest lap time in a car at TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a 1:53. What is a typical lap time for an average rider out there?

Turn seven is the "gravity cavity" there, and yeah, it feels cool!

The "hump" over the neckcar track between 3 and 4 is "wheelie hill", guess where that name came from?

You'll see similar speeds on the straight coming in to 1 on the mighty Gix. Indicated speeds will be around 180 on your speedo though. Top speed will probably be about 160- maybe a bit more. The fastest guys in CMRA on liter bikes there were clocked at a top speed of 168 or so.
