Wanna practice my leans !

Hey Guys and Girls,
Me and a couple of my friends wanna go to a track and practice but don't know where to go. I know a little about the track off of 288 but I heard it was real expensive. Practicing on the street makes me nervous but I can do it if there's a nice area. Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated. I'm originally from the car scene but its summer now and don't wanna break my car. Thanks guys !!!

Ben

it may be expensive to ride the track, but it's way cheaper to crash on the track in many different aspects.

What's your bike and your life worth to you???

$165.00 trackday is also cheaper than a $100.00 ticket.

It was stated that it is not for aggressive riding. I guess you will have to have Buck define aggressive riding but, if dragging knee is not aggressive then I will be happy to come out and show you how to lean your bike. :icon_bigg

i doubt they will be riding agressively. something tells me some people may get spooked and only do two laps.

I'm thinking it'll just be a Round-Robin session. Riders broken up into groups of 10 with an instructor leading. No passing.

from what i understand its a free session with no hot laps-- but everyone at msr is cool, so let them know you want to lean-- they will give you tips-- just remember your bike will lay all the way over and scrape pegs easily as long as you control your throttle theres nothin to it. good luck
