Yup, I thought exactly the same thing.. I thought it was just north of Seattle, but nope, it's just below the Kootney's!!!bender said:yikes! I didn't think it was that far. I don't know why, but for some reason I thought spokane was closer. oh well.
Almost40 said:It's actually a 7 1/2 hour drive by car if you don't stop. Last year it took me 9 1/2 hours with stops and pulling 2 bikes on a trailer.
Distance from Burnaby to Spokane is about 650 km.
PH-Q2 said:There was about 30 bikes there,but the track itself wasn't busy at all with no more than 10 or so bikes on it at any given time.
Steve Smith #2 ama pro thunder rider was there on a 748 kitted out to a 820 something,nice bike ! wish someone would buy me one or two just like them.
I ran about 3 laps with him ,and then he'd pit, and come back out with another bike just like the one he was on? Go figure?
it was kinda strange, I could hang with ,and pass him down the front strait with the one 748, but the other one was just smokin down the strait with a top speed of 275+ when he and I were hittin 265 topped out on the other bike.(confused yet) I went over to ask them about gearing for the track,and find out what tip's they might give out?
As it turns out they were testing their new 998 that they are running in formula extreme next week.......well that answers some things here?
I timed the trip to the track from Kelowna 4:19 to the track on the A route, the B route takes a little longer?
and if you just want to come watch it's FREE !
