Good, my purpose for the year is to go at least once to HHR; Cresson and ECR.
For ECR I was thinking TTD on August 29/30. Maybe ride one day and CW the other or ride both days (to seize the travel).

Get a car, I haul my bike on the A4 and get around 25 to 28 mpg. If you like to carpool for August, we can take my car and your trailer.

I Have!!!! But...not on the ZX7. Be the first to do it mang!!!

Honestly though, I think you should get some experience on the local tracks first. Eagles Canyon is a blast (probably my favorite track...just enough speed, elevation change , and knee dragging), but I think you should experience some time on the track before trying it. I would have been semi-lost trying to ride that track on my first day.... You WILL GET more bang for your buck sticking close to home....

FWIW, I tried ECR my first yr and it was a blast....but speaking from experience....if it means 2 trackdays at TWS (Texas World Speedway) vs. 1 at ECR because of $$$$, I'd go for 2 days at TWS (Texas World Speedway)
