I ride Reno to Laguna for the race, bout a 7-8 hour ride, makes a nice thursday afternoon to evening ride to be ready for fridays practices.

And the Video really gives you NO idea how big a drop the corkscrew is.. it's eqievlant to a 1 1/2 story drop in aobut 100 or less feet.... SO kany off track excursions there.

But the final turn of the track seemed to offer more exciting passes last year... Roger lee's pass on the youngerster in supersport was AWESOME!!!! on the last lap, last turn for the win.

I am headed to Laguna Seca on the 18th (Friday) from SoCal. I would love to have others join me and my small band of misfits.

Check out the link here...

Would someone explain the concern about the stock exhaust? Is there something I should know. I have a Yosh pipe... I rode up last year with a Yosh pipe, no problems...

I have my ticket and pit pass, but I'll be leaving on Sat, from Woodland hills.
staying on PCH as much as I can, if any one's interested. watch out for loud pipes if you plan to visit fisherman's wharf, last year I heard couple of riders got tickets for noise. Stay safe

Myself and another rider from SVF are thinking about rolling out there. I'm in Northridge (near Porter Ranch) and he's near CSUN. I just posted a thread on another Kawi site to see if any of the (11 or so) group riders that we roll with are interested; or any of their friends (which is a mix of Kawis, Hondas, Yamahas & Suzukis).
