As much as I'd like to, I don't think it's in the cards for this year.  Quantico is about a 10 hour ride for me from NH.  The course being on Thursday means 3 days vacation.    Dang it, why can't I be independently wealthy!

Seriously, for a vacation or that distance, I'd go do a full-on track day.  You got Loudon near you, don't you ???  Like to do some exploring in NH.

UPDATE!!!!

Chris "teach" McNeil will be the guest instructor on 8-25 at Quantico. You may remember him from stunting BMWs.  He's a pro rider, has a ton of YouTube video content, and is a very talented rider.

If you can make this one, MAKE IT !!!!

Be jealous... I'll be there.

Loudon is about 2 hours away, by the most direct route.   We have lots of good back roads to explore.  The only problem is the local police don't have much to do, so traffic enforcement is high on their list of "to-do's".   Got stopped for doing 48 in a 30 zone, but just received a verbal warning.   I swear the gray hair on my head definitely helped.

If you want to make a trip up, let me know.   We normally have a guest room available , or can throw a rollout bed in the wife's sewing room.

I just signed up for the 25th.  I'll be on my C-10.

You know, I got all excited thinking ANOTHER person signed up.  Then RFH hit me.  ARGH!

See you tomorrow.  Looking forward to it.

Anyone remotely near Quantico has to sign up for this!  This was crazy fun!  I just wish the rain didn't shorten our day.  I have to sign up for the next one.

Frank,

Good seeing you.  Glad you made it.  For the rest of you within 1-2 hours, it's probably some of the most fun you will have on 2 wheels combined with good instruction, and good learning.

OUCH... not going.  Doing a mancation with 2 buddies down BRP to Blowing Rock, NC.  Nice roads down there.  Killing me to miss this event.  Schedule requires we roll when we roll. 

See you at the next one.

That's a nice run, Barry.  I've done it twice.   Although I think you're going to miss the best part of the BRP.  The 100 miles from there to Asheville is, in my opinion, the nicest part.  I'm jealous!

Hey, are they still doing Supermoto races at the Go-kart track in Chantilly?
I feel like a new person!

Oh... I'm VERY familiar with BRP from Boone to Asheville.  We may very well hit all of that while we are there.  Although within 20 miles of Boone/Blowing Rock is crazy good riding.

Supermoto starts in October IIRC at AllSports GP in Sterling.  www.supermotojunkie.com has the full schedule.  You should come out and spectate.  You can give it a try on the TTR if you want.  Crazy good fun.

Sweet.  I'll have to head there after work to watch a race or two.  I'm looking for a super-cheap street-legal supermoto to tide me over until I can figure out what I'm going to do about a bigger bike.

A stock TTR is $750 - 1000, a pimped out setup for indoors with BBR150 kit, suspension is $1200 - 1600. 

You have no idea how fun running indoors is.  LOTS of contact, very aggressive.  The guys on CRF-150Rs are hitting about 52mph on the back straight.  It is ridiculous good fun.
