Riding ?

Monday, June 18 is looking like a nice day. I'm heading out into Northern NJ if anyone wanted to ride ?

Meeting a rider at (Mc Donalds) 1873 Bruckner Boulevard in the Bronx at 9 am then heading out to NJ.

What's are the fees associated for a rental day there ? Is it like Poconos where your able to ride in 20 min intervals per session?

This is track longer than East Course in PA ?

Will, Im doing CSS there in a few months and a day with their bike is 650 plus I think a small additional fee if you need their safety gear. Im hoping I'll have full leathers by then, I have everything else.

Hey Bob you wanna come by and kick my dog too???

You have to sign up with an orgnization to ride there. Most of us here ride with Team Pro-Motion. Some days there are 15 minute session, some days there are 20 minute sessions.

I haven't been to the Pocono track. Everyone stopped going there because the pavement is so bad.

I wouldn't kick a dog unless I felt threatened by it!

Post Re: Riding ?

Pocono has let the motorcycle track section get so bad that NO ONE, not even car clubs will ride/drive there any more. They only care about catering
to NASCAR and barely keep that section of track drivable.

I actually like the east course which was 1.6 miles and the FUSA course which was 2.5 miles. I really didn't care for the north course which was 1.6 miles.

NJMP has 2 tracks, thunder which is 2.25 miles and lightning which is 1.9 miles. Both have far more elevation changes than pocono. Which was flat except for the bumps, LMAO. BUT way more technical than NJMP. NJMP is
super smooth and very fast. AND the only track for sportbikes within a 3 hr drive for most of us. The next closest track is Shenny or Loudon.

Re: Riding ?

Which way will you be heading up in NNJ? I could probably meet you guys somewhere on the NJ side depending on which way you head up.

I usually ride all twisties up NNJ and avoid highways if you'd like me to lead in NJ.

Holy F. You're going to go highway all the way to exit 34B (route 15)? If you'd be willing to, take exit 53 (route 23) and I'll take you to a good/great back road route which will most likely meet up with all the routes you probably plan on taking.

I despise highways. Burns all my nice rubbers and flattens out the tire.

If you dont mind, PM me the route you're thinking about exploring and I'll lead you there via back roads instead of trekking through via highway to get there.

South 23 is way too congested. Too many lights. North 23 by 443 (Highpoint) is awesome though but you have to go another route to get there not through South 23.

Just to name a few i've been through over the years; 661, 565, 631, Beaver Run, 517, 519, 626, 628, 613, 616, 651, 650, 635, 629, 627, 633 and 6222. You know any of these?
