Jan 6th, Chuckwalla

Anyone else going?

Miles and I will be there.

This is my first trackday since my "unintended encounter" in Sep '16, and I'm jonesing to be back on!

I just got new tires in for the beast, and I'll have the local tire shop put them on sometime just before it's time to go.

I'll be on a black GSX-R 1K, and Miles will have his S1KR. Stop by and say HI!

Uh, because I haven't been on a track since June of '16, and I'm totally needing to be at a trackday?

Yeah, I warm my tires with two easy-ish laps. Works for me.

Croissant, I did a track day at Big Willow on a winter day many years ago and the temperature never got above freezing.

I did a track day at Buttonwillow two winters ago and there was ice on everything in the morning.

Cold track days are just another kind

Hopefully you can make it. It'd be good to see you again.

Trying to kill off the remaining life from my RS10s.

I have a new set sitting here in the garage, but I'm waiting to put them on just-in-time for a trackday on Jan 6th.

Today was:

Ensenada, Rosarito Beach, Tecate, La Rumorosa, back home.

About 250 miles +/-.

They're mostly dead.

La Rumarosa must have been fun. Did you eat at Casa Abuelo? I know the name is somewhat close but wrong.

Didn't stop for lunch.

And, yeah. It's always a blast. People that haven't been to it don't know what they're missing.

But don't tell anyone. It's our secret.

The day was fantastic, and far from “cold”.

It was a mighty fine day out at Chuckwalla. The weather was perfect, the track conditions were ideal, and all in all, about as good as it gets.
