Auto Club Speedway April 24th
« on: 03/30/16 06:57PM »
I'm going to ride my supermoto 4/24 at ACS.  Is anyone else going?

I'm going to rent a truck, or will pay for help with transportation.

I may be going but won't know until April 13th. Guess maybe the R6 if I still have it or R1 will take it's place  :17:

Feel free to ride my DR also, but I'm already signed up in group 1 with it.  I'm afraid closing speeds in the faster groups might just be too high.

Oh wait, what am I saying, you'll still have the R6.  Pick me up ass crack early?  I'll be your pit bitch :)

I might go. Depends on if I can squeeze my ass into my leathers and my shoulder is up to it.

Is it completely insane for me to ride my bike there? I live in Orange so it's not a far ride at all and I'm slow as shit so I'm really not too concerned with crashing. I have a tow vehicle but no trailer so it's a PITA to rent something.

I'm renting a truck so, if you do have a crash or mechanical failure we can still get you home.

If you have an M1 license, then you'll learn a whole bunch of great stuff!

That was really fun, I wish a few people could have joined me so we could have an OCMOTO pit ;)

I signed up for the slow group because the DR doesn't have a lot of horsepower.  I got meatball flagged for passing at corner entry during every session.  Finally, in session four I pull in to speak with course control, flip up my visor and say "yeah, I know it was close, but I passed that guy before I got to the two yellow cones" The course worker says "yeah, which corner?"  I replied "the corner after the back straight leading into that hard right" he said, "shit, you know exactly what I'm talking about, we're moving you out of this group" 

I rode in the 2 level group the next session and it was super fun. My corner entry speeds were high enough that I wasn't getting in anyone's way in the way in, and on the way out it was pretty easy for anyone with a sport bike to motor away.  I had clear track the whole session except for one slow guy I got stuck behind.  I'm absolutely signing up for group 2 next time.

I ended up signing up for their Supermoto asphalt class + 1 track day with Trackdaz for $350. To me the pricing was spectacular compared to this event if you're on the frugal side.

I've done SoCal Supermoto 3 times and I've done California Superbike School Level 1. I've yet to do a track day on my own bike though. I broke my shoulder in a couple places and my ribs when I hit a deer about 8 months back. I'm 95% OK but I'm still a bit cautious about really hitting it hard on the bike. Plus it's a pain in the ass to get my bike there.
