Post Legal-ish place to practice launches near Danville/Bloom?
A friend is coming in on a Thursday evening from NY, and we need to teach him how to launch a motorcycle. He's getting absolutely KILLED on race starts. If it was a Friday it would be easy, head to Numedia or Beaver... But this is a Thursday.

Don't need a full 1/4 mile.. Just enough to run out first gear and shut it down.

Oh, it's not a street legal bike. :P

Any ideas? Could use my driveway, but it's uphill.. don't want him to wheelie over backwards. :banghead
