Barbers has motorcycle track days all the time. I will be at one this Saturday just to watch and learn, but I plan on doing some in the spring. So ride up there this Saturday at 8:30 and join me to learn some more about the track day process. To do the track days is a process: your bike has to pass tech inspection and there is a little prep to be done to the bike. visit the Barbersmotorspeedway to learn more. I hope we can get a great turnout from this group to attend some upcoming track days in December and this Spring(2014)
