    Well folks, I just signed up for an instructional track day with the Utah Sport Bike Association on April 23rd. I'll be hitting The Monster Mile (the Kart Track they've been using for a few years) and should be getting some great experience that I can put to use on the full track.

    I'm also signed up to ride the brand new track at MMP with Apex Track Days on May 29th.

    I'd love to hit the track a few more times this year but that's gonna depend largely on my budget. The track days themselves won't break the bank but when you add in the cost of taking a day off work, gas for the drive down, a place to stay, etc it adds up quick.

    Should be a good time though and well worth the money. Even if I only get these two days this season, I'll be a much better rider for it and will have a hell of a lot of fun.
     
  2. Just some FYI...

    This is a completely new kart track that you will be riding on. The old one (Black Rock) was located where turns W4 and W5 reside.

    Even better then!!

    I've got my bike ready to go and I'm getting pretty damn excited. This weekend, I completely flushed the cooling system and went with water wetter. I'll be riding in factory fairings but I've the tape I'll need and even have a spool of safety wire though I don't actually need it for the ART. I need to get some clips to make wiring easier but other than that, the only thing left is for it to stop raining here so that I can get some more riding time in to shake off some of the winter rust.

    Looks like my plans have changed.

    I was going to be doing an instructional day with the UtahSBA on Sunday this weekend but I've now got late night work on Friday that has to be done and there's a period on Saturday when no one else can take the on-call phone for me so I've switch to May 7th instead.

    It sucks because I want to get on the track pretty bad but its also good because the work stuff was going to really screw with my drive down plus it will probably rain anyway.
     
  5. Hoz: Too bad you already have plans on the weekend of the 5th. I'm doing the new setup at Reno with Apex trackdays that weekend. I was going to see if you wanted to go. Anyone else interested? Probably going to drive down on Friday the 5th, ride Sat, (maybe Sun?) then back home.

    I did the MMP for R2SL, man those tracks kick ASS!!!!

    Damn! I certainly would have gone too!! I'll have to settle with just the ART that weekend and then MMP on Memorial Day. I'll try to do another track day toward the end of the summer too but I can't spend too much on it or my wife's patience is gonna wear thin.
