Hey Spaceman, I'd love to get up to L.A.and do some riding, unfortunatly the next few weekends are bad for me. I haven't ridden much in L.A. except for Ortega. Maybe need to do the motel thing the night before and get in a long full day of riding. late Aug. or early Sept. Oh, that reminds me GP Motorcycles is doing a track day Sept. 1st. It might even be the big track. I think it is like $190.
It is the big track - scary, scary, scary! I'd probably take the ST2 since I could hide behind the windshield at those kinds of speeds (I used to hit 125 in my Boxster at the apex of Turn 8, then drift out to the edge before braking for 9 - it is truly frightening to me). However, doing the slow group and just taking it at your own pace would be nice - no speed limits, no cars, plenty of runoff IF something happens.
This subforum seems pretty quiet. Wondering if anyone is still active on the forums? 821 forums seem pretty scarce on activity, even on ducati.org.
Just picked up my M821 last week and have been itching to find some good roads. Previously had an 899 Panigale that I couldn't take out for longer...
