Re: NCM Track day April 28th-29th

I'm registered for Sunday, April 30th. Intermediate group. Handful of my regular group as well. One or two in advanced, one or two in novice. It would be great to ride with you again. It's been awhile.

Re: NCM Track day April 28th-29th

NCM is a great facility. Much nicer than you might be used to. There is a mid speed right corner called deception for good reason. High grip in warm conditions. Should be a ton of fun, and MTD puts on a quality event in my somewhat limited experience. Haven't ridden Putnam since the new pavement was laid, but NCM is twice the track Putnam is.

Excellent!! You renting a garage? I saw you need to being your own air with you other than that looks good... says free camping is there an area setup up or can you camp in the pits?

Re: NCM Track day April 28th-29th

Weather is still looking good both days. high 60's (67 Fri. 68 Sat) with chance of T storms Sat. Afternoon.
Wanna go sooooooooooo bad.
But, I turn 70 this year.
like it or not, the old "reflexes" are--well--- OLD!
And I can sit here til hell freezesover and say I'm just gonna "take it easy".
YA-- right, I'll be trying to keep with Bannisters punk ass and I know it.
A little too much over confidence on a late braking charge to the apex coupled with a "momentary lapse of reason" (or an acid flashback) and it could end up a sky ground sky ground re-make of my youth.
And maybe take someone else with me.
So-- gonna take my Doctors advice.
I'm gonna hang up my leathers. And boots, and Bohn back protector.
I might still come out and watch. And ridicule everyone to vent my frustration.
Or-- stroll thruogh the pits wearing nothing but a strap on dildo.
Still trying to decide.
