Track Days...

As most of you know I ride BMWs (Shaft Driven bike). Do any of the tracks in the area allow the bike to be ridden on trackdays with other chain driven bikes. I was told by Arturo-MOd-MrAwesome thatit was not allowed...Anybody know? AJC

I don't know what the "rule book" says but I saw a shaft-driven BMW at a TWS (Texas World Speedway) trackday. Don't rememeber which organization it was. Either LSTD or Ridesmart.

AFAIK - none of the tracks have any shaft drive limitations...

I've seen BMWs and there's at least one FJR (also shaft drive) at each TWS (Texas World Speedway) trackday. You are good to go.
