Back at ya...and thanks for the tow/sighting laps.
Felt a bit like a rolling Road Block at times, but as you said, the fast folks didn't have much trouble moving on by.

I really enjoyed the track; definitely a fun & challenging layout.
Wouldn't mind going back again sometime.

Sad to report per rrw.com that our hosts back in March, Ted Rich and Elaine Carpenter passed away in a small plane crash yesterday in Arizona. They seemed to be living life "fully" in the short 2 days we spent with them, renting 600's, hearing some choice stories, and getting simple unforgettable advice about improving skills on the track.

I won't forget that experience at Chuckwalla, thanks to them.

I was shocked and saddened when CGT1229 shared this terrible news this morning.

It was a special and unforgettable 2 days we spent with them, they were wonderful hosts to a couple of Chuckwalla noobs. I felt honored to have met them both.

An interesting "Good Cop/Bad Cop" couple:

Ted was kinda gruff, but friendly and helpful once rapport was established.

Elaine was just plain awesome; upbeat, kind, and observant.
She gave me a simple riding tip, that made a big improvement in my body position.

I'd hoped our paths would cross again sometime.
Sadly, that will not happen - at least in this lifetime.

Godspeed, Ted Rich and Elaine Carpenter.
You will be missed.

Premium Rush are the last folks I heard of for trackdays (Race prepped Ninja 250's), though I haven't heard their name mentioned in a while at recent OPRT trackdays. Maybe I'm way behind the times, not sure if you're referring to street rental or track or where you're talking about wanting to rent.

We have folks in Bellingham renting BMW adventure type bikes for the street.

Thanks. Was looking for rental down at Chuckwalla actually. Thinking about flying down, do a weekend down at the track maybe in February when winter blues is at its peak.
