Curious, how do you go about getting your bike up there? I need to get some track days under my belt but probably won't get to the Ridge until next year. I only have a compact car

Go to U-haul, get hitch mounted and wired for probably under $350 and rent a trailer or just rent a van or box truck from them for a day or two and ur there.
I've seen some pretty small cars pulling really nice bikes over the years at trackdays. Renting adds to the trackday itself, but probably wouldn't be more than paying for a permanent hitch on the car.

last i checked uhaul was gonna charge me $200 to install a hitch and harness on my accord. motorcycle trailer rental is $14.95 per day.

some guys ride up, other guys carpool, post up a "need room in a trailer" some guys will even be nice enough to drive you too for splitting gas etc sorta thing. find a buddy with a truck and convince htem to go to the track with you!

After getting a gall bladder removed last December...just because I had a burger for lunch does not mean I can't have a burger for dinner now...and 35 lbs. in five months later, here we are.

The weekend is a bust for me, but I'll have to get in touch with them for the parts. Trying to source suspension parts does not seem to be as easy or straightforward as trying to source a mohawk for my helmet.

I got a compact trailer that I can store in the garage and throw the bike on. Scour Craig's List and you can find a good Kendon. They are pricey, but worth it and hold their value very well.

That looks nice, I'm pretty limited in garage space so it would have to be compact. Reluctant to add a hitch to current car because it might be on the way out later this year (looking at newer Legacy's LOL).

They stand up vertically. I used to have a 1 car garage with my car, bike and trailer easily squeezed in.
