    Got a chance to have a few laps at the Ridge on Saturday. It was very cold and a bit wet but the worth it. Didn't have a race bike ready yet so had to settle for a street bike off the shop floor(thank you Carter Motorsports for the bike and Chris @Motovan for the camera)
    Lots of elevation and fast front straight. check it out for yourself. switch it to 720p and let it load for a minute, crank up the volume

    Wow, looks much better than the videos of the new track in Oregon. Have to give that one a try in the summer.

    Thanks for posting that, Adam! My friend Tony Bakker was also going to be there, and I'm sure he enjoyed it, too.

    Who's up for an away round this year?
    Could be a nice option if we get offered crap dates.

    He means ORP. It's a new track less than 3 years old.

    Wasn't sure if he meant ORP or somewhere else that I hadn't heard about.

    I've ridden 3 w/e's at ORP (Star School in 2010 and 2 Motofit w/e's this year) and I think it is a fantastic track. With 16 turns, lots of elevation change and safe run off almost the entire track it is a hoot both CW and CCW.

    Even though it is twice as far as the Ridge I plan on doing a couple of weekends at both TRMP and ORP
