Southeast MN has some of the best tracks in the area:
Just to name a few.
Best of all, they're only 1.5 hours from my home.
Pick up an '08 Brian. They're a hell of a machine. They'll make you be bored of your R1 in no time.
BTW, '08 is the year to get. They fixed the handling problems of the '07 where the front end was always wanting to wash out. Just be sure to get an aftermarket exhaust and pitch the factory exhaust can.
