"Bid on Raleigh" has 7 offerings of MotoMark1's course. (motomark1.com) Last time they did this I think the working bids were around 200. It is time limited and ends tonight at 7pm Check it out Its a good course and now even better at the new place up in Burlington.

I highly recommend MotoMark if you are looking for a riding course. His courses are top quality! Well worth the money. And he's a great guy too!

watch for dirt in that turn if riding at pace. Looks like a lot of loose stuff on the road.

Oh no dont tell me.... That one turn was clean today its at the corner of the klew shot so its not usually taken fast...by me at least...dont relish piking up a 730 lb pig...LOL...just love the NC countryside with the bucolic farm settings and rolling terrain with smooth asphalt...add in that i love late afternoon and evening riding and i am high from the ride...oh forgot to mention how sweet the air smells out in the country...whatever it is thats blooming is just smells intoxicating... Oh and May The V4ce Be With You !

yep - honeysuckle!

That road - you just have to watch if you are approaching from the north - since that road is an offset T intersection, you get a nice gravel triangular island there just to the left of where you are standing.... so if you lean in and go fast, apex earlier rather than later.... but you'd be slowing down for the tag anyway.

The good news is - the high school down the street is finished so no more boards, nails, and construction crap in the road!
