Well folks, I am not a great track rider, but we decided to give a newfound local track a try. We went to Grumpy Valley MX track in south-central ohio. This is a 1.4 mile track that is fairly rough. I am a wuss when it comes to big jumps, and sure enough there were lot's of them! Jay, you would love this place. There were singles, doubles, triples, tabletops and two sets of whoops-mostly difficult to impossible for me. Much easier than New Vienna which is quite dangerous, but way harder than Honda Hills in every aspect. The big jump at Honda Hills I can do no problem, not quite the case here. The best part about the track was an underground sprinkler system-feels good to have some water jet on you while riding! The bad part was that most of the "easy" portions of the track was extremely loose and they actually use a farm plow on it instead of smoothing it out. Imagine riding through a recently planted wet clay corn field and you'll get the idea. Basically there was 1 and only 1 line around most of track, otherwise you would be in 4-6 inch loose clay soil with big nasty chunks and rocks. Stray off this line and you're in trouble! Passing was almost impossible on 1/2 the track. Am I a novice, or are other tracks as rough as this? The guy running the place yelled at me for taking a cheater line-no problem I said but if the track was smoother, I wouldn't have to . Well this was the wrong thing to say, he was pretty ticked off (later apologized though). I probably shoulnd't have said anyting. The track is not real popular, maybe some folks just don't know about it, maybe after one time of riding though the plowed areas turned folks off. But I can tell if if you fear not gravity, and don't mind riding in loose, wet, clay conditions with minimal lines, you may enjoy this place. Admission is $5 and is located near Tarlton off route 56 SE of Circleville. If anyone needs exact directions, I'll post them. Anyway, didn't wreck-but came down on my rear tire and front tire both at the verge of losing it. I am finding it is best to keep the gas on and blip the throttle while hitting the jumps for smooth landings. Doing this one a 2 stroke will make the front end go too high, on the WR is works for me. I did have the pleasure of experiencing one hell of a tank slapper while braking into a loose corner-damn I need that steering damper! I am convinced if this bike wasn't so darn stable, I would have endoed it at about 30mph in the middle of a bunch of fist sized rocks. I think I'll go back to being a trail rider. Oddly enough the quad-sized trails I usually ride had about 3x as many lines as this 15-20 foot ride track did!
