    Saturday - Ride to the Races?


    Anyone interested in breakfast at the Lion and then up to Loudon for the opening day of the LRRS Season?

    Leave from Seacoast at 9:30...?

    Weather is looking lousy for taking the bike this weekend (at least from Maine..). I do plan on bringing my girls down on Sunday though in the cage for some spectating!

    As someone who has been up close, I recommend the other side of the fence.

    How old are your girls? I have 2 girls 5&8 and might go up with them Sunday. It's better for them to see other girls up there. It helps them be less intimidated there and would like them to be involved with the sport.

    The neat thing about LRRS, you drop into most any garage and introduce yourself, ask about the bikes and how the racing is going, people are tremendously welcoming. Just be aware that there is no time for talking when a race is coming up, or if the bike needs fixing.

    Man, what an awesome day. Even with the rain I still had a great time. Never did really talk to anyone though lol. I've got a bunch of pictures I'll be posting sometime this week. The rain put a damper on taking pictures though so I only got a few races I think.

    Dang, too bad I missed your post earlier I was moping around over by turn one in the grey hoodie taking pics and watching people crash Chatted with a few peeps but mostly just watched. Despite the weather was a ton of fun to watch and can't wait to go back. Some brave mofo's riding in that weather, I think it was race 10 (11?) like 3 people crashed out in a row, hopefully everyone is OK, a few guys got carted off :/

    Re: Saturday - Ride to the Races?

    Yeah I saw a couple guys get taken off the track in the ambulance, hope everyone is alright.

    I spent some time right before the turn 1 flagger at the end of the straight, spent a bit of time at the end of the last turn on the front stretch, and a bit by the turn that goes up the hill. Can't make it in may but would like to be back in June. I'll make a thread once everything is uploaded for pictures

    The 4-wheeled drifting show in the lot behind turn 6 was a hoot to watch too!

    Walked around with the gf a bit yesterday afternoon and caught up with a few familiar faces. Almost felt like a ghost town with the weather.
