Who does trackdays here?
Who of y'all Corvallis/Albany friendly people go to trackdays? More specifically, who goes that has extra trailer room for my P.O.S.?

Also who does your tyre mounting around here?

Danke!

In terms of motorcycle trackdays, I don't I haven't yet felt the urge to go flatout on a motorcycle with more than 50 hp.

I use Fred's Honda for my tire mount and balancing. It's roughly $25 a wheel. I know a place in Albany that is cheaper, but Fred's only a block or two away for me.

There are several riders from Corvallis area that do track days - I do, but I just moved to PDX. Talk to QCDragon to get the scoop on locals doing track days

I got my tires done at Independent Motorcycle Repair in Philomath across from Thriftway - Jonas (pronounced Yo-nas) is the owner. Be prepared to chat for a bit especially about EU bikes.

Another place to get your tires done is Premier Moto Gear in Albany on Queen near 99E (Pacific Hwy). They have a decent selection of gear if you need any.

Hope to see you up at ORP with the rest of the Corvallis crew sometime this summer!

Fred's Honda is spitting distance from my apartment. I'll probably go there.

If you're going flatout on a trackday, you're doing it wrong.


Now racing....well that's a whole different story.
