HA, took me a minute, but that one was good.

This is a pretty good look for this bike too.

Jennings GP is just south of Valdosta,Ga. Motorcycles only and warm enough to ride all winter!

Took me a minute, too. Zoom, Zoom...

Looking forward to warm temps... It's been VERY cold where I live, not sure about Jennings though, but I would guess it's probably a bit nippy to go track speeds. LOL

I think it was 40 for the first session and mid 50’s after lunch. Not bad at all. Jennings is actually worse in the summer. Done a couple of track days in July or August and couldn’t keep the sweat out of my eyes and misery trying to pull off the leathers. That helmet never smelled the same again!

Two guys drove down from Toronto and one from Maine for the New Years track weekend. Getting here from Arkansas would be a piece of cake!
