So what do you do in December and January?

Ok, so today was my last street ride. The Buell is sold and the SV again in it's pure track outfit. No more street riding for me.
Which leaves the question with the last track day scheduled in November and the first usually in February, what do you guys who only ride on the track do in December and January?

Track 21 FTW

We usually get together and race karts. Also, you'll have plenty of time to get the bike cleaned and prepped for next season. Tinkering with the bike is the best part of the off season.

Also lots of Motogp 07 Xbox live

Suck Up to a member @ MSRH - wait for a nice warm day - pay guest fee and go ride, or you could always join if $$ aren't a problem.

This season is going to be stripping down the bike, getting suspension serviced, have the motor looked over (i.e. valves checked) get the bike SPOTLESS just so it can get dirty first part of the year.

get the suspension rebuit, damper rebuilt, give the bike a good workover. Its going to need a new clutch and some transmission work this season...

Last year I managed to get out on MSRH with Larry in December, that was nice... And there is always the MX'er to go flog around and work on my backing-it-in skillz

I work in my house and don't own a street bike.

Getting a mini motard and a membership in Katy looks more and more interesting.

Mini's are sweet man, do it! I must admit, I have more fun racing mini-endurance then i have ever had on a motorcycle before or after.

Hmm .. that sounds also pretty good. But do you have to be CMRA licensed (which I'm not)? $75 doesn't sound too shabby ..
