Hey Jason, I live in Kalamazoo also...I'm new to this board and saw your post.
I did the Grattan Aprilia track day last year....Oh what fun that was...I give you track guy's tons of credit.
I have a 1990 CBR-600F White / Silver
Bought new and with many mods...
I also have a 2001.5 Falco Blue w/ Renegade Stainless High mounts, Rene chip and Evoluzion filter.
My friend Eric has a 2000 Yellow Mille and a 1987 FZR-1000
So you race...Do you know Dave Hewkin ? He's also a friend of mine.

JBRU167,

I got the custom chip from factory pro when I was at the AMA Superbike races at Mid-Ohio. Contact Marc on their website if you are interested. He was very helpful.

I'll probably see you at Grattan or Gingerman, I don't know if I will bring both bikes or not. (I am finishing a '87 Hurricane 600 for the track.)

I'm relatively new to the forum. But, I am a 'Troll.' I grew up west of K-zoo along the big lake in St. Joe, went to college in Holland, and for now I'm working in Ann Arbor.

I ride an '01 Falco. When I ride with others, it's usually with my girlfriend on her CB650, a friend with an SV650, and another friend with an ST1100. I usually travel alone, or sport-commute, but am always looking to meet up with others who want to go explore the Michigan backroads.

cheers,
Shawn

P.S. The south haven dairy bar (if anyone know it) is one of the best ways to highlight a ride in Michigan.

Born & raised in Michigan...

I worked in Livonia for seven years for TRW Automotive at Plymouth & Middlebelt until Oct of '01 when I moved to Phoenix to work for Toyota at the Desert Proving Grounds.

Well I just missed you then. I work On the other side of I-275 across from TRW @ Key Plastics. I'll bet the riding is a bit better in Phoenix.

I'm in SE Michigan, just across the border from Toledo in Lambertville. I'd love to get together with anyone and do a day trip ride. Snwolff, you seem to be the closest to me. M-50 from Jackson to Grand Rapids is a nice ride, as is US 12 to Sommersett then North on South Jackson road into town is a GREAT ride with lots of twistys and hills. Look me up if anyone ever wants to get together! Hit me at Apriliaepyon@yahoo or Wizducati900@aol.
