Hey guys, we have a lot of forum members doing track days here in Nor Cal. It would be nice if everyone posted up about their upcoming track days. I unexpectedly ran into @Bobby Johnny last year at Sonoma? Because of one of @smash adams posts, I ended up doing 2 days at Sonoma with him. I also shifted a "free for me T-Hill day with Keigwins to do a Friday Fun Track Dayz T-Hill event him and another Barfer. I unexpectedly ran into @Phanuel and one of his buds on 7/2 at a Keigwins event. Sharing the day with a couple other S1000RRs made the day much more enjoyable even though we were riding different groups. :smile2:

Me thinks we should post up when doing track days regardless of the track day provider. Some may add a track day to attend the event. Ya never know.

My next days are with Keigwins. T-Hill West 7-29 and 7-30 T-Hill West backwards. First time at both. B-. I'll be taking the KTM sumo as I've been told it might be more fun than the HP4. Hope to see all of you at Laguna, Sonoma or T-hill at some point. :grin2: OC's comment have discouraged me from ever wanting to ride Buttonwillow but I may change me mind to get in another day. :laugh:

Don't know why there is no option to delete a duplicate post. I tried. Mods, please delete one of them.

I'd love to come out to Sonoma, T-Hill, or Laguna in the near future. Buying a car that can tow a trailer very soon. Do you guys all tow individually?

Signed up for July 29 & 30 at Thunderhill West. Its gonna be a scorcher—107-109 that weekend! West in reverse is gonna be weird, especially the right-hand hairpin after the front straight.
I'd love to see the forecast change but it shouldn't feel any different than 4th of July weekend.
@RR1 I don't know about the others. I tow individually. The Escape barely holds my equipment. :rolleyes:

Probably. Helmet ,boots, leathers, gloves and miscellaneous items take up the front seat area. In back I have: Canopy, 2-3 folding chairs, ice chest, tool box, generator, tire warmers, extension cord, plug strip, step stool, 2 pit bull stands, canopy weights, misc. stuff like paper towels, chain lube, torque wrenches, mini air compressor and a 5 gallon gas can. :rolleyes: Probably need to lose my center wheel chalk on the Kendon and add their tool/storage box. Still working on the logistics so things aren't so crowded. :frown2:

Hope you are hitting the gym! I can't even imagine a day of 5 mile laps. :laugh: I'm not sure I want to. That sounds like torture. You should do T-Hill West on the 29th or 30th as a warm up. :wink2:

WTH is turn 3 all about? Looks like a widowmaker.
