...and thanks for the unintentional kick in the pants -- the trackday thread you started last night reminded me I had started this list a few weeks ago but never actually finished it. :D

Sportbiker, what are you thinking for this year? Road America with ZARS?
What the world needs now, is more purple and lime green.

Anyone going to try to make Heartland Park this year?

It's still a strong possibility since we could visit family in Milwaukee the weekend. Would save me two vacation days but is only one day at the track. Know if they'll have trackside suspension? With some of my changes I probably need a reset.

Track Support Specialists will be there vending according to their latest schedule posted. Tom (owner) is a good guy. Races with CRA & CCS, and is also the Michelin vendor for midwest STT and CCS events this year. I'm not 100% sure on suspension services, but I know he does damn near everything else so I'd bet he'd be able to do some setup for you.

Quick update. My relatives are out of town for Memorial Day so unfortunately can't pull the trigger on ZARS. That means I'm highly likely to pickup the two RA dates with STT. Besides the usual Labor Day Wing event; WOOT!

I take that back. I'd prefer to do the Motovid date at RA instead of the late June one with STT but need to work out other events before knowing.

Got my boss's and hosts' approval so I'll be in for the July 10 date at Road America with Motovid. Likely to do the double session thing FWIW.
