I'm just doing C Saturday and B Sunday.

Because I haven't been to a track in awhile.
I've never been to Chuckwalla.
This bike is newish to me, I only did one track day on it and that was in Sep 2016. (Life got in the way just after I got it so it sat)
Also I'm not a young spring chicken anymore

I'm just going to work on things and get comfortable on this bike, have fun, and not push it too hard. My plan is to start doing a weekend at least once a month. I'm ready to get back into it seriously again

Iíve never seen anyone require bug spray.

Sun screen, yes. Bug spray? No.

Had a great time! It was pretty cool watching Josh Herrin out there getting some tune up laps in too.

Here's a couple pics from the day (not Josh Herrin)

It can be done. But, the main thing to worry about is if you break down there, or worse go down, or even worse than that is go down and get hurt. it's going to be a nightmare getting you and your bike home. On top of that, after a day on the track you're probably going to be pretty beat only to have to ride all the way home right after.

I used to do some corner marshal work at High Plains Raceway in Colorado with MRA, I would ride out there (about 1 1/2 hours) spend all day in the sun and then ride back home and that was bad enough.

It's just way better to truck/trailer it. Motorcyclists are pretty cool people over all, It should generally be pretty easy to find someone to tag along with if you don't have the means to get your bike there on your own
