Youth of America unite and celebrate a motorcycle you can actually "learn" to race on. Good going Honda. Now, if we can just get KTM, Kawi, Suzuki and Yamaha to do the same we'd have real entertainment at dormant tracks across the US on weekends.

Where are these "dormant" tracks, pray tell? Every track I know of within 10 hours of here is fully booked every weekend.

Thumbs down

I wish I could just go and buy one of these and start racing. Having been in the military and now a student, track time seems so out of reach. I don't even have a car for Christ's sake; how am I supposed to get back and forth to a tracks that are over 1/2 a day's drive away and be back in time for obligations?

It's the same for off road. No garage; small apartment and I can't park a pickup on the street here in Chicago. Where would I go?

Frustrating.

C'mon out to the Burbs Fox. Forget that downtown livin'. Get more for your money by moving OUT of the city.

Yeah, I know. Just doesn't make sense to leave either. I live 2 blocks off campus and have cheap rent. I just resigned a reserve contract with the USMC and they're sending me to California for the summer to train. Doesn't make sense to move.

I just want more motorcycles. Is that so wrong?

How about it. I'm supposed to go to 0321 school in California in May. Unit arranged it so I can go after my finals and get back in time for the school year, and they even chipped me $15k in bonus if I pass. Now all I have to do is convince them to send me to that KLR school...I already have a license....hmmmm....
