    Moto America back in action this weekend in New Jersey. It's another two day event and weather looks promising for once. Who are your picks? Grids are a bit lighter than they have been lately..

    SBK: Gerloff, Beabier for wins.
    SS: Fong/PJ
    SSTK1000: Babuska Jr
    Jr Cup: Olmedo/ Landers on the second day (1st time there I think?)
    Twins: Parrish and Murray. I think he's a local

    seems Roco only needs about 2 laps of practice at any new track to sort things out, but will be sweet to see him be tested by Olmedo and Co. if it's possible.
    Frankie is flyin on the new Graves spec kawi. THIS will be a good race..

    Does the weather really look good ? I figured Dorian would be getting there about that time.

    Dorian should be way too far out to sea to effect Millville. At least if the forecasted track is accurate, and it has been pretty much spot on so far.

    I'll be there. Looking like Sunday is more likely for me but TBD.

    BTW, anyone ever done this? I've done enough unintentional parade laps around NJMP but thought I'd get this for my FIL if they let you go more than 50 mph.

    "What is the Fan Lap Cycle Corral ticket?

    Preferred motorcycle parking with free gear check and a fan lap around the track at the end of the day on Sunday. Do I need to tape up my lights? No, it’s a safety car escorted lap around the track. You are required to wear helmet and have a signed waiver."

    I saw Rocco at NJMP in May. He looked like he knew what he was doing as he passed me everywhere around Thunderbolt.

    It’s totally not worth it. I’ve seen these parade laps and it’s a complete cluster f8ck.

    Lee is an awesome rider, awesome bike, awesome team... just not sure he will have the track knowledge advantage he enjoyed at the west coast rounds. East coasters (best coasters ;) ) Mesa and Frankie B. i think are gonna have something for him.

    Disagree. While you're obviously not ripping around, it's cool to see the perspective on the track on a bike, especially if you're not a regular track-goer. Did the Corral Ticket at PIRC last year, it was still cool to see going at a slow pace even if I have churned a couple laps there - the wife enjoyed it too.

    You must've missed the Road Atlanta and Pitt Race races..

    Ya I have Mesa in the stock 1000. I didn’t know he rode injured at the Pitt.
