Goal 1: Get through January

Goal 3: Get through March
Goal 4: Ride

I'm not driving fast - I'm flying low

Though the tracks are open in Northern CA, no one is riding motorcycles on them. I'm hoping to be able to get the old girl ready for a weekend at LVS this winter. It's a bit of a drive, but I don't think I'll make it through this winter without it.

We can rent tracks here in CO. Get some buddies together and rent a track for the day. There are plenty of days in th Bay Area to ride during winter. Not 100% warm, but certainly doable. Even a slow day on the road or track is better than no day...

I don't have a street bike. I only ride on closed circuits, and none of my motorcycles are DOT.

When I was younger I would ride every day. I didn't have a car, so I would shovel the driveway to get to work in the winter. I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and I would even strap my snowboard to my back and race up the canyon to ride on my days off.

About five years ago I decided riding on the street was not fun anymore. Too many tickets, close calls, and slow ass drivers for me. Now I only ride the track and winter can be a bit tough.
