  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Track Days 2017 - Non Exclusive List

    Thought this might be useful to some. Its clearly not an all inclusive list, just a list of 2 PAK days/weekends that I am considering for this year. There are plenty of other single days, but I only consider going down to the US if its for 2 days; singles just not worth the trip. I won't be going...

  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: Reminder: No Race Results in Titles, or Unrelated Threads

    For those who aren't in the know, it is a BIG no no to post race results either in a thread title, or halfway through someone else's thread which doesn't have a spoiler warning in the title. There is a 1 week ban for first time violators of this rule. As well you'll have to endure a scathing...

  1. 2 Fast discounts at ORP (Oregon Raceway Park)

    Just got word that 2 Fast is offering Canadians discounts for their trackdays. (Not sure if all tracks or just ORP). Their next event at ORP is July 1 & 2. If you've never ridden ORP, it's definitely one of the funnest, most interesting and technical tracks you can ride. The best part is that it...

  4. CRTC/Cable Campaign?

    Has the membership here considered trying to launch a campaign to return motorcycle racing to Canadian TV? Single voices are obviously not effective. We already pay around $200/month for internet & cable and get mostly crap programming. MotoGP is the single most exciting & courageous motorsport...

    Hi All, I thought this year would be a good opportunity to try out one of the track days that so many people talk about. I have a new (to me) bike that I am excited to ride once spring-time rolls around. I have grown weary of riding in the city so I thought track days would be a good opportunity...

  6. Seat position

    Right up front, middle, or the very back of the seat? Ive used further back, it seems to keep the rear wheel stable with the weight but I need more opinions on how other people position on the track.

  9. Start of 2017 race season from Australia.

    I know most racing fans care more about MotoGP than SBK, but if you haven't checked out the first couple races from last weekend in Philip Island they are worth watching. The finish for the two Superbike races are so close, and Supersport doesn't get any closer. Sit back relax and enjoy some...
