I'm not taking sides, but that's a blanket statement that's just not true for everyone

You are correct. For many folks, it's the equivalent of well over a years worth of riding.

Since that's the case, this new group will now be known as "DEATH RACE 2010"

I don't have issue with OP's group or purpose. I would like to know what qualifications/experience he has as far as leading a bunch of noobs on a route, and what kind of structure he plans on adhering.

BUT

IMO this thread should be locked and deleted.

This is no differant than someone from another site (*** or ***) coming on here and advertising THEIR piece of the interweb.

What is true for some must be for all.

I'll answer your question with a question. My mother owns and rides an Ultra Classic Electra Glide. She's never crashed. In her 60's she rode from Upstate NY to Alaska and back. In Alaska she rode on gravel roads on the sides of mountains with sheer drop-offs.
1. Will a track day keep you from crashing on the street?
2. How is a track day going to make her a "better rider"?
