Where do you guys go

    Where do you guys go

    Ok so part of the things I'm going to have to consider before moving home is...the availability of track days. I know you have a cut off season compared to us but where besides Loudon do you guys go in a season?

    Down here I have access to....Jennings+, Homestead, PBIR+Rd Atlanta, Carolina MSP+, NOLA+(although at 10 hr drive I won't make this one a habit!!), Barber(doing this end of july), Lil Tally+....

    Yeah, Loudon is pretty much the only game in town if you're only up for a day trip (about 1.5-2hrs from Boston).
    NJMP is the next closest. Thunderbolt is a phenominal track (beats VIR North, IMO.) but it's a bit more of a hike at 6-7hrs from Boston.

    Oreo,
    I tend not to care about the drive...if i can help it im there for the weekend so its worth it to me. I hate single track days...you're just hitting your stride and its over....
    I just drove 15 hours to go to NOLA in New Orleans and the end of this month I'm driving 9 hours by myself to ride Barber with Track Tactics....so at that point if anyone wants to share a ride im all for it
    crap I wouldn't be opposed to a yearly trip to Jennings around thanksgiving or Christmas

    Agreed. 2 days minimum for the win.

    A few weeks ago was killer... Spent Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues, Weds all at the track. Heaven.

    That's something else we don't really have up here, weekend track days... if you want to ride the track on the weekend, you're gonna have to race with the rest of us

    I take it you are in Florida? Florida has the opposite of Tail of the Dragon: 11 turns is 318 miles.

    Up here we have miles of winding, tree-lined roads with elevation changes and changing scenery. In the winter we engage in traditional New England pastimes: drinking and fucking.

    Re: Where do you guys go

    ha. I know the suckiness of Fl roads trust me. The one thing I'll say is the further north and central you go there are a few better roads, thru the forest etc...but generally yea.
    the track is the best place to get some lean in.

    As for the dragon...i'm a "local" lol. Atl is the other option for moving....which puts me 3.5 hours from Deals Gap, etc. I was there last year but when we separated I had to move. Atl is awesome but I don't have family or close friends there.

    Re: Where do you guys go

    Travel to the track is the biggest killer for us "up North". I moved from FL to ME and it's a 4-5hr hike for me to get to NHMS, and roughly 11-12 hrs to get to NJMP......worth it though. I'm lucky in that I head south a couple times during the winter so I'm thinking of packing the bike with me from now on and hitting up Barber, JGP, and Carolina when I go. I'm planning a Barber trip with a few other forum guys for early next year, so maybe we could all get out there and rip it up!

    let me know when....If I can make it i'll meet ya. I'd love to do Road Atlanta....
    i have friends from MD and once a year they make a trek down in a big group during the winter when there's nothing goin on up there.
