Just called them for more info. They will have 10 bikes per session, and as mentioned with cars mixed in, and a pace car leading the way at a 'not fast, but not slow' pace.

First off, thanks to Chris and the guys for letting us come out and run! I know it was to promote the business, but it was way cool of them to do it for us!

When I got there today, it was just me and two TSBA guys, so we ran a bit more of a "spirited" pace...

The track quality was AWESOME! Totally smooth, NO loose rocks, and good seams (they don't upset the bike when you get on 'em). The surface was very "confidence-inspiring"... plenty of traction.

There was some discussion previously about run-off (running off and sliding onto another section of track, specifically) but after riding, it doesn't look like it will be an issue (as speeds are fairly slow in that section).

The track is pretty tight and technical, with a few decreasing-radius corners (watch out!); I can see where it may be easy to run wide/run off. You don't get much of a break anywhere. The track would be PERFECT for a CR85 'tard up to the 600's. My 1000 was WAY overkill.

I'll certainly be back... Thanks again Chris!

Man that track rocks! I can't wait to get back out on it next weekend. The Motard is going to love it even more.

Thanks Chris and everyone else involved!

Thanks Chris! It was great to finally meet the man.

It was alot of fun to get out there and get a little feel for the track. I'm looking forward to March 8 even more!!

That track looks like it'll be alot of fun for the smaller bikes. Jim's gonna have a blast on his Motard!!

Absolutely correct, this was my first time on a track with my bike, and I was kinda scared for the first two laps. Primarily because, as Pre K mentioned, there are two or three decreasing radius turns that will get you quick. My chicken strips were tiny when I went, now, I don't have any. This track is definetly more for the smaller bikes, no question, but fun. It was great meeting everyone.

Great meeting everyone today. Did the "Factory" make it home with the wire still holding?
Pace was fast enough that I found out how far over I could lean the new 'busa before the feeler started dragging.
Last session of the day had four of us out there and had me wishing I'd worn knee pucks. I finally brought it in early.
