Sunday Ride:Track Day at CMP with PRE
Instead of a normal Sunday Adventure Ride we took a trip to South Carolina to experience Carolina Motorsports Park with Performance Riding Experience. It was an awesome time with 7 pilots ripping up the track.  Big announcement for Dave C. who was bumped up from the novice group to intermediate as his skills and training have escilated his riding capabilities.  Good Job Big Man!!!  You can see his excitement in the pic below.  I busted out the SV650 one more time, Jeff brought out his new BMW S1000R, Martin showe the world his boxer baby R1100S, Justin on the amazing Ducati 959, John ripped up his rubber on the S1000RR Randy on his tech inspection passable ZX6-R, Dave on his R6 this time, maybe the XR again next time.  We had a few moments of down time due to some new to the track Novice riders having agricultural experiences causing some red flags, but once they got that out of their system the track cleared up some many more perma-grin experiences for our Frontline pilots.
As we always mention in the track reports, some of the best times to be had were not on the track, but the experience of having a road trip with friends stuck in an RV for hours on end telling silly jokes and half true stories.  Also, the night before the track day we set up the track day compound and feast on great food, thanks to Irene, and have adult beverages while telling each other about our past and who we really are and what we really do.  Some of the best times are had off the track and we would love to bring you into that tight track day group to find out who you are, then watch you change into a track addict on the track the next morning as we rise before the sun for a mandatory tech inspection and track meeting.

Nate’s Bike Review: 2017 Triumph Bonneville T-120/Thruxton 1200

I know that I recently did a review on the Bonneville T-120 and had a great response from that but wanted to share a video of the new benefits and features to the customer of this amazing new Modern Classic motorcycle from Triumph Motorcycles.
Link to delivery video:
The amazing Triumph Thruxton 1200 with the HP motor is a real treat to get to ride, then add the R package to the already spectacular Thruxton 1200, and feel the extra braking power and Ohlins/Showa suspension upgrades.  The only thing I can say is that is feels like a Daytona supersport machine l until you squeeze your legs into the tank and feel the narrow classic tank, and when you listen to the Thump of the monstrous parallel twin instead of the whine of a screamin’ three-cylinder.  I really appreciated the upper cowling addition we put on the White 1200 that gave he an out of this world look with the additional plastics and the lowering of the clip-ons to put you in a real superport stance.  Keep her stock to have a more commuter friendly or long distance friendly ride….  Come in and take a ride on our demo and see what you are missing!
