I know a few who didn't need a ramp to get over the fence and through the woods

Re: Nelson Ledges?

I wonder if they are selling pieces of the old rest room as memorabilia?
I puked my guts out in there more than once. Back when we used to get drunk on our ass then go race the next morning.
AH-- the good old days!

Re: Nelson Ledges?

I finally bought a duel sport bike because I found that my GSXR wasn't very good at off roading at the camp site. Certain people should not confirm weather I took the red or blue pill.

Watch your mirrors Dave.

I think I read they tore the old bathrooms down and I doubt selling off old parts had much demand! And no sense using the bathrooms to puke the smell alone would keep me pucking

I'll know more first hand soon

Wow Nelson Ledges. What a freakin' dump. After you've been to tracks like Barber and VIR a place like Nelson needs to be tore down and scrapped!!

Bitch and moan as much as you want sitting on your couch eating cookies or shut up and ride! I hope the new ownership will pick away and find ways to make it work bringing motorcycle racing/schools and track days back Nelsons!! I've been around a few tracks and hopefully get to experience more (NCM this weekend actually)


Santa when we going riding?
