      Great to meet you Benjamin -- very cool you were able to come out and check it out! Hope you'll join us at a trackday again in the future :-))

    I had some mechanical problems with my bike in the morning, and I missed 3 sessions, but once I was able to get the problems sorted out -- I went out and ran a few sessions in the afternoon and had a good time. It was tough getting back into the rhythm after taking a few months off!

    After my abrupt exit from the track, free ride on the 1 bike parade float, and subsequent trip to the ER I'm ok, a tad sore but will be at the track tomorrow, I will not be riding however :-P

    • Matt C.

      Ouch. Glad to hear that you're ok Chappy. So nice of Hans to offer to pay for the windshield and fairing, too.

    I got a lot of things done today (was out of town all week, got back yesterday evening) except leave early enough to get to the track to camp out with you guys. Bummer. So - see yawl tomorrow at 7a.

    May 24, 2013

  • Chappy

    I've arrived!

    May 24, 2013

    • Brandon E.

      I'm jealous. Wanna setup my tent for me while it's still light out?

      May 24, 2013

    • Chappy

      Sorry dropped and had to run home, totally would have if I had saw this in time

      May 24, 2013

  • Benjamin W.

    Like Rick I have not been to the track before neither. If I just want to come hangout, can I ride there?

    1 · May 23, 2013

    • Chappy

      You can ride there, just won't be on the track with most of us :-( hang out and get acquainted with the layout, next track day at acc is fathers day!

      1 · May 23, 2013

    • Benjamin W.

      got it. thanks

      May 24, 2013

  • Rick

    How do I become a track spectator? ;) I know stupid question but I'm clueless where to go, what to do.

    1 · May 23, 2013

    • Bogdan

      Just come to ACC. It's $5.00 to enter for the day. And here's where to find us: http://tinypic.com/vi...­ . If I were you come over Sunday afternoon and then stay for the after party :). Also there is nothing wrong to come and hang out all three days :)

      1 · May 23, 2013

    • Beth

      When you arrive at the track, you'll pull up into a small parking lot and there's an office. Go inside and pay your $5. Then they'll open the gate for you and you'll ride into the grounds, down a longdriveway and then you'll turn right (you'll see the bikes and tents set up). Continue down the paddock lanes until you find us :-) Just ride slow & be courteous of riders going on/coming off the track. The paddock area can be quite a busy place depending on what part of the hour you arrive. Hope you can make it out!

    After all the questions and the lure of Michael's kabob (that sounds awkward), it turns out that my son is performing with his college orchestra Saturday evening so I will be on my way to Appleton, WI rather than watching RTRC tear it up. Y'all have fun!

    May 21, 2013

    • Michael A.

      Matt sorry you won't be able to taste my famous kabob, maybe next time.

      May 22, 2013

    • Matt C.

      I know...I'm bumming about that, but we may ride to Appleton to visit our son, so at least I'll get a full day on my bike. (weather permitting). Next time for sure...OR?.i have an idea for a group ride which include kabobs. Gonna noodle on that idea for awhile.

      May 22, 2013

  • Brandon E.

    Anyone headed out Friday either able/willing to:
    Pick me up in Chicago proper (Roscoe Village) or
    Pick me up at the Metra station in Joliet (Avoid the downtown traffic!)
    ?

    May 21, 2013

    • Brandon E.

      Scratch that, just got a car for the weekend. :)

      1 · May 22, 2013

    • Mark

      Glad you could boost a car.

      1 · May 22, 2013

  • Brandon E.

    FYI, I plan on bringing my 18" weber to the track for the whole weekend if anyone in the paddock wants to set meat products on fire.

    2 · May 8, 2013

    • Brandon E.

      Didn't end up getting my grill on the transport -- if I bring grillables, will we have a grill of some sort in our paddock?

      May 22, 2013

      Scratch that, just got a car for the weekend. :)

      May 20, 2013

    • Bogdan

      Len you could try coming and see if anybody drops from the roster in the morning, but I'm sure there's a waiting list for that too :). So get on the list.

      May 20, 2013

  • Michael A.

    I"m bringing shish kabob

    2 · May 17, 2013

      Matt- take the plunge I promise you you wouldnt regret it! Get yourself a second job first as this addiction will eat you up :)

      1 · May 20, 2013

    • Matt C.

      @Chappy. I have a feeling that I'll be the only one bringing chicken strips. (hilarious comment, btw)

      2 · May 20, 2013

  • Kamil

    Hey guys, I've been meaning to introduce myself my name is Kamil. I've been riding for well over 15 years and keep doing trackdays off and on for the past 5 maybe 6 years. As for this weekend I'll be there on sunday unless anyone has a intermediate spot for saturday they would like to sell. I'll also be at road america on monday if anyone want to drive together. I'm from Arlington Hts.

    2 · May 19, 2013

    • Kamil

      Hey Beth, unfortunately I wouldn't be sticking around for too long as I'm going to road america for the ZARS school monday morning. Where do you guys usually set up? I'll try and set up near by.

      May 19, 2013

    • Beth

      Bogdan posted a link to the paddock area map in another conversation (below) - that'll show you where we set up camp. Basically, pit out, North course.

      May 19, 2013

  • Matt C.

    Is it possible to come out and watch or maybe audit the review sessions? I might do that now that I know there might be shush kabob there.

    2 · May 17, 2013

    • Beth

      Totally Matt! It's the best way to learn what a trackday is all about... short of riding one :-)

      May 17, 2013

    • Karen W.

      Matt I am not riding that day, so if you want me to explain what is going on during the novice sessions while on track just find me.

      1 · May 18, 2013

  • Chappy

    Bogdan / Beth, Same pit area on the north side for the weekend? I'm shooting to get down there on Friday night. Anyone else heading in on Friday?

    May 17, 2013
