Just look up keigwin.com when their calendar is out in a few weeks and let me know.

I have a GSXR-750 you could borrow except if won't pass sound if you are ripping through. If you back it down a notch, it will work no problem. I will bring all the stuff to you and we can both ride.

In!

I know it's no MotoGP track but the Isle Of Man's on my bucket list.



The U.S. tracks should be easy (Yes, Laguna counts) but is COTA going to let us do track days?

I'm thinking this may be in need of a different type of croud funding. Bigger than our normal BARF fund raiser. Anyone ever do an Indiego or something similar? Anyone want to take owership and then direct our loyal BARFers to that site for donations?
I'm in for $100 regardless.
Good on you my man for not settling for... "I want to visit all 50 states."
Way to go big or go home.
I can't imaging what it would be like to ride all those tracks.
Keep your head high!

Okay, I think we need to put together a committee to make this happen.

Chairman (or person so that we (I) don't offend anyone....)
Travel department
Budget department
Equipment department

Thoughts?

Sinncere the offer is so sweet.

Jon.

I have some contacts that live in Spain and I will ask them and another in the Netherlands to come up with schedules and schools. If your willing to blog here I think we could get you some discounts by exposing them to barf. At least worth a poke and see.

Awesome stuff really. I am sure you will find lots of good juju from this amazing community.

I lold. You'll need to get some other people wearing Yamaha, Ohlins and Pirelli mechanic shirts to crowd around with their own clipboards too.
I have a Snap-On shirt that will fit right it.....but if preferred, I suppose I can pick up a Harbor Freight shirt as well for the "Mechanics"

I'll be in Spain in June of next year (Barcelona and Madrid), so I could help there.

The company I work for publishes Fast Bikes mag over in the UK and those guys are pretty cool. I could reach out to them and see if they can offer any advice or help sort you out for Silverstone... hell they also take trips down into Europe all the time so I'm sure they might have some advice on any number of those tracks and accommodations. Hmmm maybe I'll be needing to take a "business trip" soon...

This thread is getting better and better. You all rock more than you know. I am in for a donation, that's about the most I can do to help cause of my recovery..depending on how soon this all happens, I'd be in for hanging out at Laguna to be a part of the start of this adventure.
