Track Day: Calabogie Motorsports Park

This past Saturday I was invited to a track day at Calabogie Motorsports Park by my friend Yami. It would be my first track day in over a decade, and my first ever track day on a motorcycle.

It’d been years since I’d been to the show, and I’d never watched it from the lake before.
