Smithers is the place to go. Great group of folks there to ride with. What has you in the prison capital of the world? :laugh:

I lived in Leavenworth from Sept/85 to Aug/97 (dad was chief of mental rehab for base & USDB) Kansas HWY 5 is about the only good road with twisties, it starts out by turning east just past the VA and runs for about 10 miles and leads out to a 2 mile straight with only about 3-4 cross roads. This also will take you to 435 south,which will take you to Shawnee Mission Park which is a great place to meet other bikers on the weekends. Smithers is the man in that neck of the woods:thumbsup: Theres also alot of good roads north on 92 towards Easton (just past the big house) Theres a ton of history to be found there as well. Don't use the access road on the back of the base by the airport for a dragstrip,the MP's tend to dislike this and will block both ends of the road:whistle: I'm just an hour and a half east- send me a pm if you ever want to ride,theres also a group of members from KC that put a ride together every Sun. morning:thumbsup: Way back in the gangster days, Al Capone refered to Leavenworth as 'Little Vegas' thanks to all the bars down town in such a small area. Enjoy your stay- despite 8 different prisons it's really a nice quiet city:beerchug:

Guys, this is great information! i am here for CGSC and i want to get some seat time in since my last job kept me from the track scene. i here you guys have a 2.9 mile track about 62 miles from here. i am going to try and make a track day before the season is over so any sugestions would be helpfull. I have Raceteck springs and aulves that need to be installed as well as ceramic bearings for my wheels. BLUF... i need to get back in the groove and relearn the bike post eye operation.

The best 10 months of your life! Enjoy the time to take a knee and do things you enjoy. You'll be in good hands there.

Congrats, CGSC is supposed to be your mid-career "break" am certain you've earned it; I had to do it the hard way (USAR Schools); took me 2 years to complete but heck, I still got the certificate that's all that counts! thanks for your service!
