Re: 2012 Trackdays

Interesting commentary on N vs I. I have long preferred to hang in N if, for no other reason, than I assumed I had more crashes. Is that true in your experience?

I'm leaning toward going I next year but fear the "being crashed into" factor, plus all the lost track time from other crashes.

Re: QCSB newb

After a chat with a guy at work, I found a potential route down SW of Muscatine, where I work. It'd be an extra hour roundtrip but hope I can ditch work early one day so the misses doesn't notice me playing around. She gets jealous :neener:

Re: QCSB newb

Thanks for the road suggestions!

Will keep an eye out for rides but like I mentioned, my time is quite limited unfortunately. Would very much like to meet up at some point though so will try to make an effort when one looks viable.

Re: 2012>> MotoGP World Championship Schedule

The wife and I annually hit the Indy MotoGP. Used to live an hour north of Indy and its hard to justify us not going with free lodging up in West Lafayette, Kokomo, and Indy suburbs :banana-dance: If some kind of social thing is setup bump me (IM, email, whatever) so we can figure out if it'll fit i...

Re: 2012 Trackdays

I know I'm hitting Putnam at the end of the season (8/25, I think) with STT. I've also got another day planned for Autobahn (8/4, I think), which is my pref. Haven't been to Grattan, but its on the list for next year. If I don't hit Grattan, I'll be doing Road America. EDIT: BF hasn't been one of my...

I ride an '05 636, Titanium (where the bodywork's color isn't covered by glue). Probably the most obvious rider in the area as I most...
