Cornerspin 11/17-18

With the ShinDig canceled due to the rains creating swampland that was once my farm I've chosen to ride rather than sulk.

November 17 & 18 I'll be attending Aaron Stevenson's Cornerspin School in North Carolina.
http://www.cornerspeed.net/news.html

Aaron runs Cornerspeed based at VIR and does a great job working with everyone from beginning riders to the people who make a living racing motorcycles.

Cornerspin is roadracing on dirtbikes. Teaches and refines the skills that crossover and looks to be an absolute blast. All the details are found at the above link, registration is handled directly through Cornerspin.

I'll be sending in my registration at the end of the week. As of this moment Aaron can accommodate up to 9 Wrist Twisters members, but that can change by the hour as other riders may sign up.

Hope to see some of you there.

Like RidgeRunner, I've got to wait for the bonus check. I'll have to sign up for the Dec 1-2 class. Please post how good the class is! I need all the riding help I can get... Will this count as a WT event, jetblast10?

Will do, I have really high hopes for this event. Am looking forward to it bigtime.

Do you mean count for an award? nah, not as a WT Event but it will count toward the Trackday Recognition award.

Tires for the DR-Z are here and they look fun! Going from a 100 in the rear to a 120 w/ dual-sport tread. This is either going to be the most fun i've had on dirt, or I'll end up in traction trying to bump elbows w/ Kevin and Rick.

Rick & I bought trail wing tires, they worked fine at Jennings but there's going to be a lot of sliding in the dirt!!!

If you're wearing dirt gear they want you to have elbow, knee and core protection also.
Or you can wear your track-leathers and be good to go.

sweet! I did 20 push ups last night, so now I'm conditioned and ready to ride.

James - let's find a kickass hotel nearby like a suite that can accommodate all 3 of us.

Almost time!!

No idea what facilities they have on site so I'm bringing the same setup I'd bring to any other trackday.
