New to MH and getting ready for Trackdays

Hello Guys, I am new in MH and I just got a CBR 1000rr after I sold my CBR 600 about year an a half ago. I only ride on the streets but I am thinking about inproving my skills so I can eventually go to the tracks.

I just moved to Richmond (77407) two years ago from Omaha NE and I would love to go riding and meet other riders so I can learn from more experience riders so hit me up if you guys are up for a meeting or group ride next week.

I just got some of my gear online and I may get it next week. I still need more stuff like my girls gear and maybe some leather/track gear for the future. I think that mt new 1000rr is too much for my first track bike so I may buy something smaller for the track maybe a 600.

Any advise for a newbie in MH will be appreciated...

Lots of good track day choices here. Ridesmart, as CDill mentioned, FastLine as Godzuki mentioned and LSTD another one of the class acts.

My advice.... Ride to a track day and check it out. Take your bike out on a parade lap. Wander around the pits and ask questions. There are quite a few friendly folks around. Even the ones who seem not so friendly will often stop to talk about their passion.

Enjoy, and welcome.

Send a message via AIM to houseofpaint
looks like you got the right mindset already. being prepared is being smart. i'm sure you'll enjoy the track, it's an addicting sport/hobby and can get very costly. there are lots of ways to save money doing it as well. just depends on how much time you have, and how deep your pockets go.

i've been riding and racing on the track for 5 years consistently now... i still love every second of it.

if you have any questions, feel free to PM me and i'll be glad to try and answer them. normally i'd suggest just posting up your questions, but since you're new to the game, it's hard to filter out fact and fiction.

ride safe.
