Do worn out knobs count as no knobby tires? Is this full on hard pack dirt.......smooth enough for street bike with street tires? This sounds like a hoot, but which bike; the Street Triple or DRZ400S....with worn knobs?

I don't think the triumph would be a good choice for this application

There was a street bike out there last time (old KZ I think...)

Honestly, a dirtbike of some sort with a smooth tire on the back would be a ton more fun. Worn out knobs really won't cut it though. Sorry.
I'm sure you can dig up a worn street tire off the local bike shops discard pile if you don't have another option. Only takes a few minutes to bust a new tire on.

The Ukiah track is a hard pack, "blue groove" track.

Honestly, if you've got access to a "little" bike like an XR100, TTR125, CRF150, etc... these are about the most fun. The big bikes are cool too, but if you haven't done this before they could be a bit of a hand full.

Thanks for that reminder BrewMike.

To clarify...

The first practice day there was a misprint on the flyers that all spectators were free. The deal was supposed to be that each rider could bring a spectator free.
This was the deal for the initial practice day only.

All spectators are $10. (The track has to make a buck in order for us to have a place to race!)

Yesterday was great btw...
~84 bikes showed up with a good mix of vintage bikes (Yamaha 500s, Triumphs, Bultacos, Yamaha 250 2-strokes, etc...), modern bikes, and adult minis.
Weather was great and the track crew did a nice job of keeping the track surface in good shape and the groups rotating smoothly.
