no need for tire warmers. The 10 mile stretch leading to the gap from fontana village will get you plenty warmed up for the gap.And besides.....its not a race track so no need to be pushing it that hard.A good set of street tires will heat up & work just fine with all the heat thats generated while ridding the gap.
Man, I love the little warm up ride to the gap on 28. It's a blast and has some nice flowing turns which are super tight like the Gap. Can't wait to get back up there. It's a twelve hour drive for me. :(

When I went this summer, the cops were so bad up there it suked ass! Hopefully wont be like that when we are all up there. If so, have to get a couple runs in at 600 in the morning.

i just like throwing that kinda info out there cause some people dont wanna go there cause they assume everyone there is "racing" and they get scared.Its just a big fun place to ride & enjoy ridding at whatever speeds we all decide to go :)

I am going this yr!!!! Only about 1.5 hrs from the Gap. R1/R6 convention in June there and the Women's Sport Bike Rally is there in August!

Awesome. Are you staying all week and eating with us? We also have a houseboat rented out for Thursday night. Make sure you get in touch with Gawarrior to get on the list.
