Anybody been to Motoland in La Potre, IN?

I found the website for Motoland near La Porte, IN, and it looks incredible!

Is it really as good as it looks? I go back to Indiana to visit family, but have never taken my bike with me. If it's worth the trip, I'd go up there just to ride that track.

Is it worth it? And when do they open in the spring?

yes, yes, and YES. It is as good as it look, and it IS well worth the trip

I will second that...we go there for sure...:applause:

They have an excellent grooming and flagging staff. They also have one spot with 3 step-ups that have mechanical flags by the faces of the jump and a flagger on the first and last one. The sand is perfect, not too soft or deep. They Groom and water it before every practice.

Bambalance at all practices excellent facility.

Sweet! I love the width of the track, and the multiple lanes for those who aren't jumping the big ones. I've been to some of those famous SoCal tracks from the magazine test, and they were a huge disappointment. Motoland looks waaay better. Now I GOTTA go!

Anyone know if they will be open in April?

Looks like a good spot for Motoland pics.

Than quit being a wuss and do it....:)

I made it to walnut last season. :applause:

See, that's the problem. I live so close to great tracks like Walnut that it's hard to make the drive to Indiana!

opening date is MAY!!!

oh man, thats a LONG way away :applause:

The only pics of motoland I have. Courtesy of Hogie. This is the "3rd bob" (if you haven't been there this is the last of 3 step-ups in a row)

May!!?? Damn, I'll be back our west by then, and it'll be harder to justify the drive. I was shhoting for April.

Nice pics. The soil consistencies looks good, especially compared to dusty hardpack.

The first pic from Bruce372 has me in it. Cool. I am #276 on the YZ and my buddy is #122 on the CRF. That track is friggin awsome.

Honestly, I think Motoland is a step above Walnut even (not taking anything away from that track). Motoland is in its own league....

You guys need to try it who haven't. I smell a TT day in the works.:applause:

Ah, the sweet clay/sand/blood scent of a TT track day...wait!

Don't tease a dude in Friggin February, that's cruel!

I say it every year, but I really need to get my ass to this track!
