Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

If I get the bike back together and can get the days off I think I might have to go.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I'm sure your trailer wouldn't slow the van down much, or make it burn more fuel. You want to go? I don't want to go all by myself. They had heated classrooms you could sleep in last time I was there.

I would love to, but I need to recover from this past season financially.

It's like $150/day for 2 days plus food and water for you. $400 too much? You need tires too?

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

So are they running 4 groups, or is the DiSalvio speed academy in with the advanced group? I see the school has 2 skill levels, I guess they are run together.

I'd like to get down to Jennings eventually. But my motor has to get fixed first and that's also my little sister's bday that weekend.

They run inside the advanced or intermediate groups. They basically do like I do. Coach has a slot. Customers all have slots. No over packing. In theory lol.

If I get to go I hope I get a good spot in the paddock. I am going to put the bike back together tonight.

So you mean that there will not be 60 people on the track at once, with 2 intermediate groups?

That infrared heater arrived today. Going to have to run it tonight and see how it makes the garage feel. I put the track bike in the basement last night and it's nice and warm in there.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3



Generator running the computer, internet and TV are still working. It makes not having heat a little more bearable.

Just heard that the guy across from me was told he can not run a generator, I told him to fire that fucker up and wait till someone tells him in person he can't run it.

I will continue to run my generator until the power is back on.

Yes, I would need tires, too. I have tires to do my first TD next year at NJMP, but they aren't lasting 2 days at a track ive never been to.

Fuck man, still no power? My brother just told me our power is back up again. I'm so glad I don't need the generator. If you wanna use mine too, you're welcome to it.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Yeah still no power. This is getting ridiculous.

So far this little Honda generator has been a life saver. Definitely worth every penny.

Sounds like a winning case for justifying motorcycle necessities that could be used for dual purposes. Who knows when you will need to make a couch out of race tires

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I got the bike fixed. I have some fiberglass repair to do over the weekend and then I'm good to go. Tomorrow I find out if I can take the days off. I would like someone else to join me, Just bring your trailer and let's go.
