Riding suggestions

With my bike now back to a 98% stock bike and being put up for sale soon what are my track riding options?

Anyone have experience renting sport bikes, doing the Superbike school, or anything along those lines? I am keeping my gear with the idea that I might decide to fly out and meet a friend for a trackday or possibly try out one of the schools where bike rental is possible.

Thoughts?

Freddie Spencer, Keith Code and Kevin Schwantz all rent bikes.
It's actually a pretty good deal, and the bikes are well maintained.

rentmyninja.com has Ninja 250's for rent at most track day events. Of course at TWS (Texas World Speedway) it may not be as much fun, but at Cresson, or Oak Hill they are a blast.

As Patrick mentioned, most of the out of State schools furnish bikes- when you couple cost of the class + bike rental (if not included in the price), plus travel and lodging it can get very expensive really quick, but it's an option.

I was just looking at K. Codes school. The price of renting their bikes isn't too bad at some of the tracks. I see that as somewhat of a benefit towards maybe one day going to ride at Miller or Laguna etc. It would be much easier to fly out use their bike and fly home when possible. Wouldn't be often at all, vbut after driving to Miller and back this year I find it hard to think I'd tow a trailer up there just to ride.
