    Celebrate the 4th on the Track at Grattan (wanna join me?)

    Counting down to celebrating July fourth in the best way I can think of - learning how to ride the track at Grattan with the Sportbike Track Time people.

    I am no where near the organizer that Lorazepam and the gang of four, but it would be cool iffen there were any other Beemer riders who wanted to celebrate the birth of our great nation on a race track!

    I am pumped up. Got my copy of Twist of The Wrist 2 and have started implementing some of the techniques on my daily commute.

    "The picturesque road course is 2 miles long with several unique and challenging corners. It is considered to be one of the finest courses in America. Some of its features include a 3,200 foot straightaway, a 160 degree hairpin turn and a downhill reverse camber turn. If you can master Grattan, you can race anywhere."

    I can't wait to learn how to negotitate the "downhill reverse camber turn." Anyone else wanna try it??

    Let me see if I can swing it Cliffy. I think I have the 5th off, and I think I can ride up on Sat, ride Sun and go home Mon. STT is a great experience, and I would love to get on the track again.

    Whoaa

    Dude, that would be suh-weet. Then you would be a certified expert as to the two tracks Michigan has to offer. You could also make a call as to which one (Gingerman or Grattan) is the better of the two.
    (Don't know if there is another on the East side of the state, but I have not heard of any over there....)
