Thinking Motoland or maybe even BR Sunday...

Recommended Posts

I am thinking riding may be in order this weekend....anybody think BR will be open? I am also leaning toward Motoland but my son can't ride there so not sure.

Anybody wanna go?

Weather from Tommy skillet head is...

37 A transition day. It starts mild, but temperatures crash late-day from north to south as winds shift to the northeast. Sprinkles/light rain at night.

Thursday

29 Blustery and much colder with gusty northeast winds off the lake. Periods of rain during the day, possibly ending as snow showers at night.

Friday

19 Mostly cloudy and chilly with highs 5-10º below normal. Some morning sprinkles possible. Steady northwest winds.

Saturday

Pending weather, this is an option too...:applause: Right now, i got nobody to ride with......WFO, Hogie, Ron?

If you called the cell phone number (the 488 number), yeah I believe that is the same one from last weekend.

EDIT: Just called and checked myself and that is a different message...DAMN!

I'll try calling back later in the week and hopefully it will have changed, he did say to check back.

I'm betting there's a lot of standing water in the back section of the clay track. And according to my brother, they can't even get equipment down to the sand track yet.

Now where are we gonna ride?????

Based on the weather i am leaning toward D-Stuff (if they are even open) but not counting motoland out. My son wants to ride and I am thinking the trail at D-Stuff would be a crash course in sand riding, hehe.

bruce....bring the 144! If you let me ride it I will let you ride my CRF25o, hehe :applause:

I talked to one of the Motoland "insiders" he said the track is ready. The owners concern is rider turnout. He has alot of overhead to open up, ambulance, insurance, flaggers and other track people. He is watching the weather just like the rest of us. He wants to be open but he can't afford to lose money. I don't know how many riders he needs to open but if you have an interest in riding there I would call the track and leave a message to let him know. We all know some smaller tracks just open their gates and here you go have fun (we don't prep the track give us your $25). Motoland is much larger and better than some of the others at the same prices.

Pretty soon we will be saying it's too hot to ride.
