Hey for those who really dig Nascar it is cool.. This is like a 2 wheel Nascar that is promoted by the same family (The France family) Very cool.

Lots of cross over between road racing and gun people. Actually more than I thought in fact.

Come meet Big Cali Dave, Artherd, ItsmrJames and myself and quite a few others. Lots of fun to finally meet some of the rest of your family. :)

The Moriwaki Moto2 bike is for Indy. There is no Moto2 at Laguna, which is disappointing because it's so much better than MotoGP.

You should see the one off pipes we made for some of the top teams over the last few days....

Anyways.... Not heard back if any help is needed or prep work/ list has been made or done. Let me know.

I did also check Laguna's website about firearms. I saw no rules banning them, only fireworks. I think its a county park though. Anyone find a link? Suck to have uoc show up and get busted.

Also, we should pull all stickers off the bike. And run only ones that are paying thru some program. And make sure we are signed up for the program before the event.. Hint Hint.. lol

I will be there Sunday the 25th. Really looking forward to this event and cheering for the 'home' team! Seriously, you gunners are really missing out if you have never watched these bikes at Laguna Seca. It is a must see event; one that should be on your 'bucket list'.

Choppers Rule, but super bikes are completely over the top!

I have a line on a super cheap Full Corsa Ti System and some dyno tuning time. Yes the world supersport exhaust....

Let me know...

30 rd mag... Super cheap...? Leo has never helped me like that (Corsa) They asked if I wanted one a few years ago but the motor is near stock so not sure that woudl run any better... On the Mapping and such...

What year is that bike?
Also what exhaust system is it currently running?
When was it mapped last?

The bike I am riding now is (I am embarrassed to say) a 07 and it has Leo Vince Exhaust on it and was mapped at Infineon and we got a 1/2 horse more with that... We lost 6 HP changing to the spec fuel.

As far as needing help... I would say yes as your one of us and you know what your doing for sure.
Kevin is usually overwhelmed so any help would be great. Do you still have my cell #? I still have yours...

I have not been on much lately as I have been trying to get back making money as my loan mod went through (after 2 years) and I need to keep my home. :)

30 rd... I need to line some new bikes (at least 2) up if you have any ideas... :)

They do have a range on the property but my county ranger friend told me it's used as a campground by the track workers on events like this.

The tickets there are federal; got one before :-)

I would call "not the right place or right time" next weekend to bring firearms (or UOC) ...

And yea, dave & craig; I'll be there (check PM)

Who else is going ?

Any talk of a time/place to meet up ?

FreedomIsNotFree
07-19-2010, 12:25 PM
Yeah, the range at Laguna is shut down during events such as MotoGP. That area, in and around the pond, will be used for worker camping. So, no shooting this weekend. And please, don't Open Carry.

For a number of years I've worked the turns for USARM and I can tell you race weekend is amazing. Not only are the festivities at the track cool, but you need to head in to town a check out Cannery Row. The streets are blocked off for a period of time and hundreds of bikes line the street.

There are a number of tight races, in regards to point totals, so this weekend should be especially good racing.

Yeah I know about the transpo, and I know people trailering but the ride in and out in a car with the bike in the back and then tip toeing into town at night and back gets kinda lame.

It is televised, I'll look it up in the morning. The out of US MotoGP races are on Speed but Laguna Seca's not, it's on 'normal' TV.

Y'all have fun, I LOVE going to this race but both buying a place and getting married in a few weeks put the kabash on finances and time this year :(

We got back to my place LATE...

Thanks to everyone who helped... Ben, Dave, Josh, James, Jim and Nickie from CRS Tuning, Randy, Tom and Deano!!! :P and everyone else.

Thanks for being there TDS Guns!! You guys are awesome!!

We had the ROUGHEST weekend EVER for me anyway...

Had a minor rear wheel issue that kept me out of the 50 min practice on fri...

Then I had to just jump right in qualifying with no track time and ran 2 secs slower than I had but still BARELY made it onto the grid... I had a tire de-laminate in the rear and Lucky I had the one ok lap because the motor blew up 1-2 laps later. I nursed it around to circulate but finally fluid was in the bodypan and getting on me....

Slippery and foggy it was not pretty but we were in.

We missed qualifying 2 with the bike not done yet and then they canceled warm up on sunday before the race (fog again)

So I had to test a new motor, new gearing, new forks and a new shock set up in the race. 39th to 24th and then I ran off in the corkscrew... While in the dirt 6 racers I JUST past went by... AHHHH had I just not rushed it and stayed RIGHT where I was I would have made some money and been 18th-19th at the flag... It was fun but bummed I was hoping for a top 15-18 at worst.

We learned a little more about set up which is cool!!

we made it out alive with a bunch of stuff happen and I guess a 24th from 39th is not terrible. :P

Thanks again glad I got to meet a few more of you!!

Bed now!!

Absolutely had a great time. We got off course a little trying to find the parking off site and ended up arriving 1/2 way through your race on Sunday. Didn't know the class you were in or what race was on the track, so missed your race. Arrived @ the paddock shortly after. Great to see you guys out spreading the word and gaining exposure. Got to watch the race on Speed later on.

On a side note, what is your opinion of the Aprilia RSV4 R? Good for street & 3-4 hour trips? Reliability? Smooth? I like my Italian 92fs, so am thinking about Italian bike.

I have seen them race... Pretty cool ..Straight line over fast... Not nearly as exciting at road racing however.
I have had quite a few people contact me to see if CGN will sponsor there race team (whatever type they have)

Btw I an dmy buddies all promote CalGuns but its not like a full on deal although it would be cool. I love Calguns so we speak the good 2A word at the races to everyone... A bunch of Calgunners just having fun!!
