Ahh. Shoulda looked. We had a spot down here and it use to get packed! this was before i rode though. i saw a few videos. There was cars racing bikes. trucks vs cars. cars vs cars. the whole nine. My buddy use to hit it up every Friday night. He has since PCS'd and I don't know what it's like nowadays.

1/4 mile racing, not like the dumb movie though, Biker boyz was a joke I thought, they didnt do their homework enough before they made that movie, just another Fast and the Furious on bikes.

You ever drag at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway? Like once or twice a week they let anyone who pays the fee race. It's a good time. they got a car show and broads usually too. i would like to run my bike, but I don't want to look like a fool cuz i don't know **** about it. i'm a corners guy. i do like watching the drags though. In person, not on TV.

biker boys is great!! hahahah its the one place where you can see a bike go through 14 gears, and stop from 200 mph in 5 feet on a dirt road.


back on topic....................... we have a place in toronto (woodbridge in particular) that has some pretty solid street racing. they have muscle cars shows everymonday night and alot of SS bikes normally come out and there are some solid quartermile bikes that do good runs in front of the resterant, there is probably a few miles of straight line.

Yeah, but in Torque, they could jump up on top of trains; jump across the breaks between train cars; pop the front wheels up and spin the bike around in the same spot like they are having sword fights.

All the street racing around here is very tight lipped and moves regularly. Sometimes a few times in one night. Anybody flashing enough cash can join in on the fun but, you still have to find the right people to find out where its going down that night.

We have a few events similar to what you saw on Biker Boyz. Just had on last week. Mostly Hogs but, any one is welcome. Beer, soda, burgers, dogs and one big bike show. Parking lot drags (1/8), stunts and other agility contest (mostly for the Hogs). Its basically a small rally.

Drag Strip closed and new park being built. Other close strips are English Mountain in Tenn.. and Shady Side in SC. Cant forget about Bristol but its a couple hours ride. That reminds me, Spring Nats soon.

Submit your ride for the TWF Bike of the Month here


Currently ride 1987 GSXR 50, 1996 Ducati M900, 2005 GSXR 1000
