It is a fun track. As you pick up speed it is really hard to find reference points, and takes a LOT of balls in a few spots, but a cool track none the less.

Too bad they couldn't build a couple hills, but I guess it would just sink in that swamp.

And they're going to build a south course which will allow for a 5+mile full course!!

Man that would be awesome!!

yeah, the hills would likely just get all fucked up. Hell notice the road coming in

I worry how long the track itself will hold up.

Hopefully the land around the track will compact some so the track isnt so set in to the dirt. If it does visibility will get better.

Based on what I heard he one of the many that helped them dial their motorcycle shock in back when they were prototyping it.

Tman has been very good to me after the sale and is very patient helping with setup and dialing the bike in at different tracks.

I have found better prices elsewhere but have never found the same level of service and commitment from any other suspension vendor.

I would rather pay a bit more for the service than pay a bit less and get the cold shoulder after the sale.

I know Livengood had a lot to do with that too. he was one of their first vendors.

I feel the same way about Livengood. Costs more than most on a lot of things, but he does it RIGHT, and I can call him panicked on a sunday afternoon and he answers lol

I have heard from quite a few people at the track that Livengood is top notch. Sounds like he is doing it right and building a very loyal customer base.

If not for my previous relationship with Tman, Livengood would be the next vendor I tried.

Sounds like great customer service. That's hard to come by nowadays. I watched the AMA race at that track and it looks like great track other than being new and not broken in. They have plenty of land down there to, to build more track on or another track all together. Great video.
