I'm about 450 miles South of Laguna-Seca so that would be a helluva delivery run.



We can hang out at Cannery Row and act hoity toity near the art galleries. We'll dangle KPC as bait in the aquarium.

You mean like in Romancing the Stone? That was Danny DeVito that you resembled, not Micheal Douglas.

Up till I cut off my ponytail last month I looked like extra large version of Russel Crowe in Master and Commander with glasses.

Now I look kinda' like the Gladiator version 'cept without the muscles and babes throwin' they sef's at me and the whole Meg Ryan-stalker deal.

Pizza! You want Pizza? Man oh man there some of the best pizza I've ever had(Chicago style - stuffed) up in Berkeley at a joint called Zachary's. It's about 22 bucks for a large, and I am more than willing to make the run to go pick up a pie or 10 if it comes down to it!

Default Re:Oh Cool,

When I go to the races there I do take a trailer because I can't drive an RV and ride a motorcycle at the same time.



I have done some nice rides to Monterey also and California 1 is about as incredible as it gets.



You can also ride over to Hollister from the raceway and meet fellow members of the GTPB.

I really hope this happens. Is Laguna Seca as fast a track as Barber though? Anyone hear what improvements have to be made to the track? So many questions.....

Default speed

i haven't raced on either track. i do know that barber is considered a second and third gear only track. that would make laguna much faster.

from what i've read turn 2 at laguna needs work for the gp machines. i don't know for sure i have only seen 2 from the monitor. i expect runoff in rainey curve will be increased. the corkscrew seems to lack space but i haven't seen anyone get in trouble there.

Default Re: speed

The corkscrew itself isn't too bad but the left hander down the hill past it would be pretty bad if you crashed there. If you lost it in the beginning of the corner there's about 30 yards of runoff. If you crashed mid-corner or highsided on the exit there's about 30 feet. Not good.

Default Grossly Off Topic cuz I'm a big baller, shock collar, etc. etc.....

I have heard of someone making the 5 1/2 hour trip to downtown Chicago for Gino's pizza, then driving straight back. From Minneapolis.



Of course there is at least one place in the Twin Cities with similar stuffed pies, the Chicago-originated Frankie's Pizza, Pasta, and Ribs, although Gino's does have the one-of-a-kind slightly sweet cornbread-type crust. MMMM man it is so good.
