Ever wonder what to do when you're playing or watching soccer? Everybody likes to think that they're fast. Let me tell you that I am not. I have no illusions of being Rossi or Bayliss, but I'll be damned if this wasn't the most fun I've had in a long time.

Headed out to Willow Springs Int'l Raceway out by Andrew's Air Force Base in Rosamond. It's a nine turn, 2.5 mile road course. The instructors I was with said that turn 8 is wide open 5th gear at about 135mph. I'd like to think I hit it somewhere around 100. The straight away is a quarter mile and assuming you navigate the final turn correctly it's pretty much as fast as your bike can go before hitting the brakes for turn 1.

I highly recommend this to anybody with a bike.
