I have a love/hate for my local track

Ok so I get up today and it's sunny with a few clouds. I'm excited as its street legals. After the shittiest fucking commute there, took almost twice as long to get there than normal I phone 10 mins away while filling up with gas. They say closed due to thunder and lightning, FUCK OFF! This track has a fucking excuse for everything, the strip is maintained well but the road course is barely maintained. All in all I fucking hate Vancouver, bunch of pussy hippies.

wonder if it is a liability thing.. all it would take is one person to get struck and that could cause the track to be closed for ever.. considering the odds.. i would say beter a closed track than no track, eh?

I got told 3 days ago that I am moving to Comox Valley! at the end of this August. How are the tracks on the island?

There is one right near there, Saratoga speedway http://www.saratogaspeedway.bc.ca/ . I have been there for a monster truck show and a guy was running laps on a bike. I have no idea if they run any open track days. Some good roads around that area, Campbell river to Gold river would be my Sunday morning run if I lived there.

05 ZX10r "the Mongrel": GP Suspension rebuilt forks, LE Penske double shock, 05-06 ZX6rr shock linkage, Brembo RCS MC, Nissin calipers (best mod for this bike!!!), Attack rearsets, Motion Pro Revolver throttle kit, ASV clutch lever, Champs sliders, smoked Zero Grav DB, Ti caliper bolts, CF fender, Renthal grips, Speedo healer, Maviryk MDA123 batt, Supersprox +3 520, That's it..... For now

Garage
At least you still have a track. Since Race City shut down in Calgary there's nothing close to me anymore, now that sucks!

wtf I totally would have though calgary would have had a couple of tracks. I thing I find the funniest is we have a ton of expensive sports cars here and rarely see any at the track. Then again are track is a death trap, but it's got a great layout.
