Track Day?

Okay, let's try this again. Not sure if this in the right spot, tho.

Earlier this year I went 2 a road race with my BF bcause we were at his grandmothers place in a town (Tyler) nearby. I talked 2 a couple racers about doin a track day. The racers I talked 2 were really nice and helpful, but that was in Feburary, so I can't remember much of the advice. I was thinking I might like 2 do a track day. All I have an 09 Ninja 250, and Im a pretty new rider, so I don't think a fast track is what I need. I don't know what I need, really.

Suggestions?

Snap! Call out!


JK... all things in due time.




Back on topic; Miss K-Kellye-K: All the sponsors have alot to offer and do great instruction. If you are comfortable on the street and curves, you can benefit from a track day. You dont need to be an aggressive corner burning road warrior to step up to the track.

my first 4 trackdays was on a 2005 Ninja 250 ... more than enough to have fun and learn at the same time.
