Maybe a demo-derby with the baggers would be more appropriate?

Don’t know what’s so special about the Corkscrew. Once you figure out your entry line doesn’t much matter what you’re on - bike, bagger, pickup truck, LMP1.

Im a little surprised MA is allowing active SBK racers to enter. Usually a SBK license disqualifies them from lower classes and I didn't think MA was going this route with this race. But I guess its just an exhibition race so it doesn't really matter. This should be fun!

Based on all that speed wobble in Herrin's vid, T1 is going to be way more frightening than the Corkscrew. That bike is struggling to go straight at speed - a turn over a hill at speed will be nuts.

And that speed wobble was on a pretty flat, level track. Going up and down Laguna is gonna be awesome. Agreed on turn 1 - it's gonna be crazy. Can't wait!

Better double up on corner workers to pick one back up and collect parts

Well, I was going to say turn one but figured throwing that much weight left to right at high speed would be a more intense thing.

good point. And some of those Laguna gravel traps are DEEP. We may be seeing a lot of red flags because bikes can't be removed easily and quickly.

I think you may be surprised at just how fast a good rider can make a Harley go. I've ridden many trackdays with Zac, who gets his Harley around incredibly quickly.

Tyler Ohara just ran a 1:38 on his bagger.....
