I've seen a few recent posts suggesting that some of you are thinking of selling the street bike or doing more track days or some other alternatives. It seems like this is a good topic for a poll to see who cares about all this and if they are going to change in some way. So here we go, 8 options that I think covers the range of possible thinking.
For those of you that are looking for alternatives to playing Russian Roulette with your license here's a list of some options that are available in our area.
For track days we have two local options at the moment.
Troy that runs West Coast Superbike School (WCSS) puts on track days at Mission Raceway a few times a season. He posts about these pretty regularly here so you may have seen the threads about this.
For a couple of years now we've also had Randy from Cyclelogics and Squire, a local rider and sometimes racer, hosting track days at the driver/rider training facility out at the Pitt Meadows airport. These track day events are announced and discussed on threads in the Racing/Track forum with a few mentions here in General from time to time.
Out of town track days are held by various groups at tracks in the Northwest. Mostly Pacific Raceways south of Seattle and at Portland International Raceway in Portland Oregon. One of the more common promoters for these is Adrenaline Freaks (thanks for the correction Fastn50)..
For racing locally there's three choices. There's the Westwood Motorcycle Racing Club that runs race events at Mission Raceway. For cheaper fun on a smaller scale there's mini road racing at the Greg Moore gokart track hosted by the Pacific Coast Mini Road Racing Club. And for those that don't like corners there's always the Friday night drags at Mission Raceway. And for something a little different we've also got RPM Super Moto Racing that for now is still operating out of the parking lot at Tradex. A parking lot doesn't sound like much but for supermoto it's an excellent place. They've also got a small dirt section. RPM runs both races and a few open practice days.
And finally for those of you that have had enough with the pavement I'd suggest looking into theDual Sport BC club. They host a pretty good set of trail events per year.
