Penguin race school at Homestead-Miami Motorspeedway 5-16-1996.
We were the first motorcycles to ride the homestead road course.
(Harley's had previously gotten to ride the NASCAR loop but not road course.)
The 1st AMA race there was that weekend and at the end of our day, the pros started sneaking on to the track with us for their 1st taste of the new course and to get some early practice.
I got passed by Rich Oliver on his TZ250 in a couple of turns- kept taking him back on straghts on my 900rr of course, but he'd rail those turns.
Eric Wood was an instructor/rider for us.
My favorite memory is, when towards the end of the class time, someone raised thier hand and asked, "This racing line you keep refering to, will it be like a white line painted on the track or.....?" everyone looks to see who is asking this and make a note.
I resist asking, "what kind of bike are you riding?" just so I know who to look out for.
One friend rode off the track right in front of me at one point, was okay.
Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.
Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
