OPRT track day the ridge

I'm planing to do the OPRT track day at the ridge June 15th. I'm 90% sure I'll make this one!! I have a car trailer and crew cab truck so I have room for myself plus 3 more bikes and people if you want a ride. I also have 2 spare bedrooms they arnt the nicest but if you want to come over and load up the night before and crash at my place your more then welcome just bring a air mattress or something. This will be my first track day no making fun of me lol.

    I saw the videos I didn't know someone got airlifted out damn! I assume it was the guy laying in the middle of the track hope he's ok. That's why I just took it easy in 100 since in new to the track Id rather ride below then above my skill and cause a wreck.

    This was an interesting day for sure and a spectacular crash that was witnessed by the 100 level students for their field trip. It unfortunately did not lead to everyone walking away from it and having some taken away via air and ambulance. I think there were too may people riding way above their talent yesterday, especially as the rain cleared and it got sunny.

    Has fun out there. I ride pretty conservative just to learn the track. Glad your ok and your bike isn't too bad Evan. Holy shit that crash in the 300 group was the worst I have seen, people getting hit by flying bikes complete chaos. Hope all those guys are ok.

    So found out yesterday when i went to KFG that my forks are way too stiff. They hydro lock at about half compression. That was most likely a big factor in my crash. Getting them rebuilt right now.

    I should've posted this sooner, but maybe you guys can still receive the discount it's "20off" to get $20 off the price of the track day! Lots of fun stuff planned for this day guys!

    Yeah with the class you get on the track with the novice group and go to the classes between sessions. I'll be in the novice group too figure I'll take it a little easy after last time my bike is my main transportation so is don't want to chuck it down the track again lol.

    I'll be there. If anyone needs help or guidance, feel free to come hang out with me. I'm not a veteran racer by any means but I know my way around the track well enough.
