Fred Bud's???

I had heard people talk about a practice track in the Chicagoland area and they referred to it as Fred Bud's. From what I gathered, it was a really sandy track (great to get you in shape) and pretty much can be ridden year around because of that. Any info on this place would be great - website, phone number, location, hours of operation, about the track ...........


the track's in kankakee. I don't think it really has a website or anything. They call it fred bud because the owner's name's fred. I don't have his phone number but yeah the track is ridable most of the year due to the sandy terrain. not a lot of big jumps, mostly just big sand rollers and big corners

It's on the outskirts of Hopkins Park (not a very nice town) on the north side of Gamble Rd/3250S., west of Main St./2/13000 and east of 12000, big orange gate with a few moto stickers on it. 100% sand track/trails, good for riding in the winter or after lots of rain. The owner is Fred Nette. I have two phone numbers for him, but they are from several years back, Fred's home and work. If you want them, let me know, and I will send them in a PM. Lots know it as "Fred Bud", but I think the real track name is "Moto Crazy".

And if you're there when Nette is out riding, you're in for a real treat. The dude flat HAULS.

Fred positively hauls the mail. I remember watching him at Joliet on a completely clapped out yz125. Nobody else was going close to as fast as him.

I've been there once, but didn't ride much due to a coolant leak. I think there are a few guys in on that place, the guy I was there with was an old school dirttracker named Terry Starks I think?

Fred was #4 at Lorettas 2 years ago in the over 40 class. His track certainly kicks your butt, although it's best to ride it after a big rain.

Terry Starks used to own a Suzuki shop down the street from me and my brother bought what would become my first bike a 1982 SP125 very sexy

      Hi guys, I live in California and there is possibility of me moving to Mason/Ohio. 
      California has strict emissions laws where most dirt bikes are never street legal. 
      Example : 
      Enduro KTM450, Husky 450 -- Can get a plate, street legal
      Yamaha, Honda Enduro bikes -- mostly green sticker meaning it can ride OHV areas all year round, not street legal and cant be made street legal
      Two strokes/MX bikes -- red sticker, private property only or 6 months out of the year(winter) OHV areas.
      How are things in Ohio? Can I get a plate for a lets say two stroke Husky TE300? I have seen threads where people were talking about plating dirt bikes in ohio but the thread is from 2007 and a lot changes in 11 years. What happens if I bring an out of state bike to Ohio, do I take the title to motor vehicles and get a new one?
