The back straight is long and boring. 170mph+. However, the front straight awesome. 5th gear then up 130 feet to turn 1, a left, 1st gear, sharp turn. Then, all the way back down into the long, sweeping, right turn 2. Some bumps if you stay tight, but very fun!

Thank you very much! Hart-Photography aims to please. Stop by and say hello. We'll be in the Registration Building this October. See you there!

Like he said... turn 1... also... Hart's photo is so good that you can see the exhaust eddies in the blow-up. I think they chimed in above, but no marketing commission has been offered yet, so I suppose this is more free advertising for them... and watch out for that metal picture they sell, scared the heck out of me when they brought it to the classroom... looks like a guillotine blade

I'm getting punked by a guy who quotes Futurama in his tagline... yep... at 51yo, I suspected that I've already lived 1 year too long.

See, I'm over the hill...

It is way far too fun. RideSmart puts on a great event out there 3 to 4 times a year. Josh Herrin was kind enough to ride with us last weekend. I can't wait to go back.

The attendance @RS was amazing... lots of cool bikes to ride with. Felt bad for all of the crash-outs... we had 2 bikes go down in round-robin on Saturday level 2B, and I think one of them is in Hart's photos.
