To All the Fuggers...

Are you all happy now? I've never heard or seen soo many Track Days being canceled...

Thanks to "some" whiners and biyatches, now its a norm. Every other organization is canceling track days due to weather. Just this year alone - TexasTrackDays, Ride Smart & LSTD have all already canceled 1 or more track days off their schedule.

Thanks alot guys for whining, its sucks coz no more rain riding... Nor can people now develop skills riding in bad weather


On the other hand - Mucho Props to all the "public" track day organizations for manning up and listening to their Customers!

Now i'm hoping this does not become a habit - and we have atleast some rainy days!

To the fuggers that always whine - ya happy now?

Yessir, I am!

Why don't you and Chris Ulrich go play in the rain (he wrote an article about it in RoadRacingWorld)!

As soon as I'm ready to go to MotoGP, I'll start trying to enhance my skills in the wet, but until then...

riding in the rain sucks, and riding on the track in the rain really sucks! so im glad the trackday peeps are finnally listening to their people. because honestly you have to plan atleast a couple weeks ahead of time to go to a trackday and there is no clue what the weather is going to be like, but you hope and pray for some sun and dry ground and semi-warm weather.

but if you really want to ride in the rain, go play on 3090 after a good rain lol

You guys just need to lighten up, easy of the gas and ride more smoothly around a wet track, just see how much it'll teach you...

There's a reason why some of the top riders love rain riding - Its a great way of teaching.

Anyways, I'm a little this year - I've had rains sitting in my garage just waiting to be used.

It was your timing... you posted this right after the post was put up about TTD's 4-4-08 cancellation.

And I second the "OakHill in the rain" option. Chit, lets go out during hurricane season, do some hydroplaning!

Mount 'em up and head out to 3090 sometime when Frank Billingsley or Dr. Neil Frank call for 70% chance of precipitation or better....
