    If you don't get any feedback, PM me. I have a friend who used to do it (may still) and can send you his email. He lives near COS. I've watched it and it is truly wild.

    i raced @ rainbow falls for a few seasons, modern and vintage - big fun! i actually have a vintage bike i might part with - 74 tm400, less than 10 hours on new motor, de-raked neck (6 degrees), 2 inch stretched swingarm, ice fenders and full screwed (1" cold cutters anchored into internal lining) tires. the frame mods make it really handle well on the short track (ice or dirt).

    they used to run 5 races per season, starting in january. there are 2 lakes back there - usually you can practice on saturday an the "other" lake and race on sunday on the main lake. sometimes, you can practice on saturday on the main lake, it depends on who is out there.

    let me know if you have any specific questions.

    btw, you should see your old r900...
