You know you're addicted to Spiral Highway when...

  1. print up the Spiral Highway satellite ariel view off your computer, and then label the turns with numerical numbers, and memorize them.

    I was at fast_lcf's place in Pullman, and he did just that. He printed up the map and hung it on his wall. He then has all the turns labeled. He begins to tell me how turn 4 and turn 6 are this and that and I'm like what the hell, how do you know which turns are which numbers, this isn't MotoGP. Then he shows me the map...sigh...

    Addicted to Spiral...

    How do you know when you're addicted to Spiral?
  2. you are addicted...and i'm sorry to say that there is only one antidote...

    1) you must move here and take my place
    2) I will move there and suffer with your same affliction

    that way while i'm enjoying the sunny weather and "spiral highway" you can move here to seattle to enjoy the rain and what were just rated (by a major insurance company) 163th crackup: on the safest drivers list...that is to say the cracker jack coorperation has finished their run of putting washington state driver's liscenses in there carmel corn boxes because the mission has been accomplished.

    look forward to confirming dates for our transfers

    about $150 for most trackdays and yes, they usually change your tires for you without charge... BUT you won't get the instruction at spiral as you would at a track day, and you'll never hit triple digits as often as you would on a track. at spiral, there's no ambulances on standby, there's no comraderie (sp), just cops to watch out for, cows to avoid, cagers to pass, cliffs to fall off of, gravel to slide on, rails and poles to smack into, and no buddies to help take you home in case of a getoff.

    don't get me wrong, i love spiral as much as the next dude, but don't treat it like your own personal track, man. that's just asking for trouble. i just don't wanna read about some guy in a tigger outfit on a black gsxr600 that went down on spiral... again (how many times have you wrecked that thing, anyway?)...
  7. ...when the rumble of your engine while powering thru turns almost gets you off. :wink:
  8. :shock:
  9. Sounds like you need to hit the throttle a little harder...
