I finally made it out to the Nordschleife of Nurburgring about 2 weeks ago during a week off. SWEET! I had been practicing the turns and all on Tourist Trophy, but nothing prepares you for the real deal. I was pretty nervous at first due to the high volume of motorcycle (hell, any vehicle) crashes lately. After the first 2-3 corners I settled down and really enjoyed the track. It was pretty crazy actually driving the course.......exotic cars screaming past you.....dropping into the first and second carousels.......and that straightaway! This was definitely only the first of many trips out to The Ring. I'm finally coming off my high so i think it's time to make a return visit.
