Well, this looks like a lot of fun :biggrin
3.5 miles 19 turns, Chicanes, sweepers, a "jump" :drool

I've been to ACC a few times, but I've only done north course.
Any of you ever try out the full course?

Well, that should be good exercise

I think I'm more excited for this track than I was for barber. I've been watching youtubes of some guys in A that are a lot better than me trying to memorize the turns.

Long right, left, left, left, right, kink-right... :drool

I've enjoyed the full course at Autobahn. I have ridden North, South and Full Course quite a number of times. One time, NESBA had an "A" only day there. Only the "A" group riders were allowed, and we had the whole track to ourselves. Get this, only 12 people showed up! There were no sessions, and you could stay out as long as you wanted. I burned a whole tank of gas in one sitting. I stayed out on the track for an entire hour without coming in.

That was pretty awesome.

I remember the turn were the South Course rejoins the North Course, you would get air if you took the line in the middle of the track. On the left edge, you could get through without the drama, but it was pretty fun to catch air at a hundred and whatever miles per hour. You had to turn the bike right after the landing with no delay.

I think the full course is pretty technical, and certainly a lot of fun. But when is riding on a race track not fun?

Wow, that does sound awesome! The only place I know of that does something like that anymore is at Mid-O. Something called max twilight. I haven't been but some friends of mine keep talking to me about going. I would be so tired after an hour on the track, but I would have to try. Endurance-racing just sounds like so much fun!
And you're right. I've never not had a good time on the track. Even when I went playing in the mud :punk

J Bax, next year I'll be out playing on the track again. This year I have my new bike payments, just bought a 4x6 v nose trailer, and am finishing up paying for my car. Next year I'll be out and about =] ACC full course has been something I've wanted to try, it just looks like a hell of a lot of fun.

I'll be riding up there with a friend in a van and my little trailer. We won't be there until sunday evening though - hopefully in time for the food and watch the go-kart race. But i'll be riding Monday :thumbup

A lot of fun. The south course is quite different from the north. Tested out the jump a little. Had the front wheel off the ground and the rear suspension unloaded but I don't think I ever got both wheels off. Made improvements on BP and got to try out new brake pads SBS racing. Not an overly aggressive pad on the initial input but a lot more stopping power than the SBK5's I'd been using.


Im uploading a full course Video on youtube Autobahn this weekend
Where are the vids man! I did find one video of a fellow rider in A. I'm going to say he "followed" me for a bit, but he may have actually just been stuck for a minute :biggrin
