Bare minimum for the track?

I'm new at ths and have read alot of posts. But what is the bare minimum I will need to get on the Track? M endorsement? I have a textile Jacket and some gloves. No leathers or pants...

My bike isn't super fancy, she's just a lovable GS500...

I always see people posting about the experience you get from a track day. Everyone has always been helpful. So...

Do n't need M endorsement, but textiles just don't cut it, you would need a leather suit, either a one piece or a two piece that zips all around. Gloves, boots and helmet, of course.

The best thing would be to contact Godzuki, he'll walk you through everything you need to know.

Ridesmart offers free leather rentals for first time riders. So you'd need boots, gloves, and a bike that will pass tech. Brake pads and tires in good condition are the primary concerns.

The easiest thing to do is pick and org, go on their site, and read their requirements. It's generally pretty simple. Tires and chain and good condition, self closing throttle, functional brakes, and protective gear.

Why do the brake lights have to be disabled?

Brake lights don't have to be disabled, but they do have to have the lenses covered in masking tape. However if you don't remove the fuse for the lights, the heat will bake the glue on and be more difficult to remove.
