You will always find excuses not to do TD. I did my first TD at MSRH, rode there and back.

As many have said, Ridesmart offer free leather, boot and glove rental for first timers. Fastline offers 50% off for rentals as well.

You can have your wife or family follow you on a car bringing the chairs, the cooler, etc.

My point is, if you really want to do a TD, pick a track close to where you live, for Houston riders it will be TWS (Texas World Speedway), MSRH & GSS, then check a TD date and just do it.

If I am there, you are more than welcome to pit in with me, I will have water, ice, chairs, fan, etc.

My main problem is the lack of knowing people.

But I will have more time to meet people the longer I keep going to meets, so I am sure that will change soon as well.

all you guys that want to do a TD should post some information:
1. date of TD
2: do you need a ride
3. approximate size and weight
4. what gear is needed

you may find most of your needs

I see you live in spring.. I'll be going to GSS on the 30. My trailer is small but i have enough room to haul anything you need other than your bike. Always nice to meet new people..

I agree with not needing to know anyone.
You just need to get to the track first.

My first track day I didn't know anyone at all and just rode my bike to the track. Had free leather rental from Ridesmart. Among the most fun I've ever had on a motorcycle...and now I'm hooked.

Just go!

Don't let that stop you, or anyone else! I've made some life long friends at the track, most I consider family now. I think a lot of people will agree, folks at the track are some of the nicest people you'll meet. Kind of like a honda commercial...lol! Man, that was a bad joke! But seriously, come on out! We're lucky to have so many trackdays here in Texas to choose from. Pick a date that works best for you and bring it

we have several pairs of leathers (guys and womens) a few pairs of boots and gloves that we are always willing to lend if they fit. If any of yall have Y of great guys and gals that are more than willing to help. I know for Tim and myself we have more fun when we help someone that has never been on the track get out there than when we just go out and play.

If you need a pair of leathers and are on the smaller size shoot me a pm and we will see what we can do.
