I listed Sonoma as I used to roadrace with the AFM at Sonoma, it was near and dear to my heart, but much harder physically (as in tiring) than Laguna. You're constantly turning the bike at Sonoma, there's never any chance to rest, so it's really tiring. It was klckin' my ass just in 20 min sprint races, which is why I took up mountain biking: just to get fit for roadracing.
Kenny Roberts said if you could learn to race at Sears Point (now Sonoma Raceway), you could race anywhere in the world...I'm inclined to agree.

Another favorite track is Miller Motorsports Park at Tooele, Utah. I think it has a different name now. Here's a pic from at Miller from back in the day on my CBR60RR. RRRrrr...

Where to start? My "5" go-to demo tracks do tend to change quite a bit but...


1) Eagles - Hotel California, Hell Freezes Over (2KCD or Vinyl or DTS DVD if mch)
2) Bill Withers - You Try to Find a Love (Best of Bill Withers CD)
3) Who Framed Roger Rabbit - Why Don't You Do Right?
4) Lana Del Rey - Young and Beautiful (DH Orchestral Version) - Great Gatsby

5) Just about any track from Tron:Legacy, especially on vinyl, but...
5a) Outlands
5b) Fall
5c) Solar Sailer
