Re: Putnam Park (theman1990)

I won't be, but I do have a couple questions if you have ridden it before. Putnam is the closest track to me, about 3hrs away. I have never ridden a track before. Are trackdays usually pretty full? If I were going to do it, I'd rather take a class than do an open day so I won't have to correct as many mistakes. Don't have the money right now, but would like to try it in the future. I'm sure the RC would be a handful for a newbie on the track, but I'd have to "run what I brung."

All the guys around here are straight line riders, so I don't have anybody to learn from. 1.5" + strips on the tires are normal. My main riding buddy is a pretty good rider, although he is a cruiser + chopper guy. Last time we rode the twisties he scraped his pegs 4-5 times on the Marauder, once so hard it knocked his foot off. Have to give him props for riding that Suzuki to it's limits
He wants a sportbike bad after seeing and hearing my RC, if he gets one someday, count 2 more riders in for Putnam Park.

Good luck on the track!

PS- One more question. This might sound stupid, but can the public go to the track just to watch? I've never even been to the track, but a couple of my friends would be interested in going also, just to see what it's about.

Never been there, but I'll try to answer the ? for ya when I get back. Most places let spectators in, though sometimes it costs 5-10$.
