If you would like to join, it would be fun to meet new people.
Last weekend I went with Omejo, BTM and Morthed. It was good fun.

Remember when driving: Better safe than sorry.


I'll be the first to attest that this is a rockin blast...If not somewhat hard on your tires. You can get on the track with most anything (within reason) and as long as you've got gloves/semblance of armor. We aren't pro riders of any sort, but there is something about track day that is....

So fricking cool :cool:

Hey, we all got our butts handed to us by a two-stroke NSR...Which is fitting considering the nature of the track. This is about good fun, motorcycling camaraderie and practice.

There was even an old FZR out there making the rounds...He wasn't fast, but hell, who cares? Back home track days aren't so easy to come by, and there are no egos out on the Lungtan track (well, except maybe Mordeth..hee hee).

The OP has put up Sat the 25th...But the 25th is a Sunday. Can you confirm? I have a B-day party on that Sunday so will be unable to attend. The 24th is good though.

I'd be keen to come and watch and cheer on the racers. I doubt a Vino 125 would fit in on the track unless you need a chicane.
