If ur thinking of SOAR, come out to few track days. We're gonna do grand bend alot this year. Ya snake and the forks are good but quite a way out. Around here twisties are few and far between but the scenery is nice. I tend to keep the racer stuff on the track, but I do appreciate good roads. Nothing beats the 518 IMHO, but that's a trailer ride away. I'm not riding all that boring 400 series to get there anymore.
most of the regulars on this thread are track riders, nothing like it, but is an addiction as they say. It will ruin street riding a bit. If you want to see what it is all about, join us for a day and you can watch for yourself. Or grab a set of leathers, and come join It will vastly improve your street riding, that I promise. Racer5.ca offers an all inclusive track day (if you don't want to bring anything) at a reasonable price that will give you a taste.
don't be a road crayon, wear your gear, the road doesn't care how "cool" you think you look when it's busy cheese grading your skin.
511 is amazing too. I also love Elephant Lake Rd, but I hate it too. Thinking about it makes my shoulder hurt. Kitchener to Ottawa in 11 hours, amazing.
Nice!! I would like to meet more female riders as I always seems to be the only girl, which I dont have a problem with but it would still be nice to meet other female riders. I will check out the other forums on GTAM and see if I can meet up with a group to go up to GB. My life is riding and would like to meet people that have the same passion. Thanks for all the great info!
THink maybe it would be a good idea to put the horse in front of the cart and not vice versa.
Head out and do a few track days before thinking about SOAR. Learn the tracks, learn good lines on each track and then see where it leads you. GB is alot of fun with the different configurations.
Come out to the group rides in summer and you'll meet the usual KW crew. Think the first track day this summer most will be heading to is May 23 at GB.
Jen. Welcome!!!! If I forget your name I give you every right to run over me with your bike!!!
I'm surprised no ones asked her in to the other kw forum
FYI. There are 3 other women who are regulars to our group.
There would be more but I'm not allowed to invite anyone with less than 600cc out anymore. Long story. I'm sure you'll hear about it!!!!
You couldn't ask for a better group IMHO
