I've also heard there is not enough run off for a bike. Not sure how true it is as I have never been there.

I went out there many years ago for a vintage day. Watched an original 289 AC Cobra spank the shit out of all the vettes. The track was in much better condition back then. Cool place though if you like to watch road racing.

if you really want to spearhead a project, which I've failed to do sofar,

Contact DiamlerChrysler, and urge them to rent out the test track for a motorcycle saftey seminar and deminstration type of event.

Its in auburn hills, if you drive up squirrel to Oakland univeristy, you can see one of their 2 or 3 highspeed banked turns. Looks like a roller coaster ;)

xdbx, are you the prez of the MSU club??? i've been meaning to get out with you guys but haven't found the time yet... damn co-op...

ANYWAY, tried that little trick with DCX... they've got so much "top secret" crap up there they wouldn't let anyone on it without miles of paperwork... not to mention the fact that if anything happened they'd be screwed... same with ford and GM... very hush hush about tracks...

closest thing we're going to get to a local track is probably grattan... sadly enough... or mid ohio.

Are you going home for the summer or stayin up at state??? I work at toyota right now in AA so I'm not going to be riding during the week much. maybe the weekend of the 8th or somethen I should be down. let me know whats going on....

sodam, do you work at that toyota tech center on green road? are you a co-op engineering student? i go to kettering U, and i co-op at johnson controls in plymouth, and im working with toyota right now (180L seat program) and ive been down there a couple times.

daniel, thats a sweet pic with sparty (even though im a u of m guy, lol i was raised that way).

where are you talkin about round lake road? cause i practically live off of round lake road, but probably not the same place....

oh and daniel lets go ride soon and i wanna talk to you about how you got the club started, because ive been wanting to start one at kettering but i havent had the time yet, and this summer might just be the right time.
