Me too...

Damn I wish I would get fired from my day job then it would make all my other dreams come true.

Buy a cheap little bike and go to the races at the "Hanger" in Roy on 288th Street South between 8th Avenues East and South.

I don't know what the race schedule is but it's usually weekly spring to fall.

Jaak98 and NavyF4 looks like fun, good on ya'

American Supercamp used to come to Seattle. Slightly different emphasis, but you learn similar skills. I took it in Renton a couple of years ago, but since that facility was closing, I'm not sure where they run these days.

So after taking the course last year and then the grad course this year are you backing it in on your big bike yet?

I think this is going to be my next school.

So it definitely increased your confidence even on the big bike. That's the ticket then. I have a DR and always chicken out before it gets very far out of line...
