Most important thing is to leave your ego behind and ask questions ... LOTS of questions. Any instructor worth their weight will stop everything to answer your questions.

It's pretty much all been said! You'll be addicted. I don't ride the street much now bc the track is way more fun and a lot safer to use your bike for what it was made to do. Don't skimp when buying gear. Safety is first and buy good quality stuff! It's useful to have someone come with you if possible in case the worst does happen.
TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a high speed track. It's really fun and you can really have some fun opening the bike up.
MSRH is a bit more technical which is fun in it's own way. Plus the facilities are state of the art. I also like it because it's my front yard =P

You're closer to the track than me? Thought I had the record for the closest, 10 miles.
