Are you sure they MotoVid will allow supermoto type bikes? Not all organizations do.

If they do, I will really consider coming to this track day.

I just traded my 2008 R6 for a brand new 2008 DR-Z400SM.

Maybe Matt could teach me a thing or two about riding a supermoto on the track.

The only thing is I want to get through the "break in" period before I take it to a track to ring it out a little bit.

I swear I hear a lot of guys swear by a method of "break it in fast, it will always be fast. Break it in slow, it will always be slow".

the motors have been run at the factory before it is installed in the frame. just don't go hitting the rev limiter for around 500 miles and you'll be good.

we are still stuck at 17 registered - 3 short from having secured separate group.

People that are on the fence, we count on you!

Just to get your blood pumping, here is my onboard video from Blackhawk Motovid day that I attended yesterday - it was fun and very safe event, very well organized as usual

Damn you for posting that video!  Lol

I was just about to post that I can't make it, since in the last week I've had to replace the brakes and a/c on my wife's car, and last night by washing machine died, and when it did, it spewed water all over the laundry room Wow, making most of the floor tiles pop off the floor.  Thumbsdown Thumbsdown Mad2  So today my wife went and bought new flooring and a new washer.

AND, my 3 year old has been battling ear infections, will probably need tubes in her ears, and we haven't met our damn deductible yet.

AND, I still need new tires for the bike.

When it rains if f'ing pours. I'm hemorrhaging money right now. I highly doubt I'll have the funds to sign up for the track day.

Fuck.

Nope, I'm only a part time CR for them so I don't work every event.

I was there, I'm the other bike #711 :-)
