    How about a track day? We could piggy back off others if need be.

    Throw in a three hour endurance race with a possible 160 plus mile running.

    Now that would be news worthy and prove reliability too.

    I can imagine locally, Willow Springs, Buttonwillow, sears point, thunder hill or even Laguna Seca as these bikes do the cork screw!

    That would be funny- Record times set at Willow Springs....measured with a sundial.

    I would ride my bike across the country for such an event. I would start off at a go-cart track though...

    Come out and spend the day riding at the home of the American MotoGP. In March you can do it with the best: Reg Pridmore's CLASS Motorcycle Schools! Reg and the gang will be back at the World Famous Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey this March.

    What's it all about? 3 time AMA Superbike Champ Reg Pridmore's CLASS Motorcycle Schools has been taking it to the race track for over 30 years to teach street riders of all abilities how to ride well! CLASS is not a race school, but we will help you master the techniques - riding well at speed, cornering, braking, controlling panic, all while keeping it smooth and safe on a closed circuit - and you get to do it on your own motorcycle. Ratchet up your skill level and you will be a better rider on the street. In a one day CLASS Motorcycle School, you'll get over 3 hours of classroom and one on one instruction, and over 3 hours of track time to work on it. Riding gear, including a riding suit, full faced helmet, motorcycle boots and gloves required. Whether you ride a Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, Triumph, BMW or even a Harley, we will help you to ride it well.

    And if you already ride well, you can still come out and enjoy a professionally run track day with lots of like minded riders and coaching to help work on some problem areas. Thursday we'll run 3 groups at just $295. Friday we'll run just 2 groups at $395. The images below were shot by Ian Donald at our last day out at Laguna Seca. You can check them out in hi def at www.iandonald.com. Ian plans to be out at the track in March capturing the magic for you too.

    Auto races are soo boring at Pocono. I'd hate to think about bike races.
