Just want to see if we can all get on one board and coordinate meet ups, bike nights, wrench nights, mountain rides, track days, etc.
If you are new we can set up newb days and practice in a parking lot, so don't be shy.

It's Road A, so there's always a few constants:

1) It's a blast
2) It's hot as shit, always
3) Track surface is super smooth and easy on tires!

:D

I'll answer your roll call. Here's my proof I live in Atlanta...

This is what I came outside to today after work. It was hotter than Satan's balls!





I put the key in and turned her on and the temperature gauge read 106 without even starting the bike!

I was up at RA for cycle jam as well. It was awesome. I'm going back on July 4 with N2. Who else is going?

I went to RA in April with N2 for 3 days.
It was my first time there and the first two days were raining. I hadnt been at the track in a year but I got fairly comfortable on the last day. 4th July weekend will be ughh-mazing... just gotta work on my gearing issues at this track. I was in too low of a gear for like 3 or 4 turns

I looked around for a tall blonde when I was signing in and when I went for tech but wasnt sure how "tall" I was looking for and didn't want to look like a weirdo askin around lol. I def had a blast tho! Which group were you riding in Friday? I took a trip through the gravel at turn 12 during the third session, but was more or less ok and did the last 2 sessions.

I ran off then went down. Prob hit the gravel at 40-ish? then slowed down rapidly but couldn't keep it on 2 wheels. Did a cool somersault on my head and popped right up. Thought for the next couple hours that I MAY have broken a rib or three, but I'm just sore now. Still did the last two sessions after a little duct tape, re-tech and a chat with Huey at MarMo. I think I just overcooked it into 12 combined with a few other mistakes. Wanted to come back Saturday to hangout but I felt like I got hit by a truck that morning so I just stayed home lol. Workin tonight tho:thumbdown
