Baltimore has always been a town that embraces the “alternative” styles, and the local’s fondness of Hairspray speaks volumes to the city’s roots. So once a year, an event is held at the local American Legion hall to celebrate classic cycles and a celebrated battle dating back to the early 60’s and 70’s all the way from London: Mods Vs. Rockers.
While we place a fairly heavy focus on safety over here at Lean Angle, we’d be lying if we said that our rides never got a bit more…”spirited” than appropriate for public roads. That’s the beauty of sportbikes right? Purpose-built machines designed to take corners fast, and come out of them faster. But we know that these bikes aren’t really made for the street, in fact, its pretty common knowledge that some manufacturers build bikes to compete in the AMA/ WSBK racing leagues, and then throw some lights on to make them “street legal”. So last Friday, some of the Lean Angle crew decided to do exactly what everyone says…”Take it to the track”. So we loaded up the bikes, dusted off the chase rig and headed west, to take in the turns at Summit Point Motorsports Complex.
