Hello from Seabrook

Hey my name is Brad. I just got rid of my Subaru in order to get lasik and focus 100% on the bike. I had an 09r6 with 22.5k miles on it and just traded in for a new 2010 R6. I have been on the track a few times in cars, never with the bike. I have about 12 or 13k personal miles on the street with riding mostly in Texas spread over 3 different R6s and a 08CBR1k.

I wanna progress and learn to ride properly on the track. I'm not familiar with what programs are available but I imagine its gonna be the same as taking a car out to a track day. I'm thinking I want to start out on TWS (Texas World Speedway), but nothing is set in stone. I would appreciate any input.

I know Brian, he showed me a lot on the R6 when I first got it on how to tear it down and do all the maintenance. Sept 10 is going to be a little too soon. I need to get health insurance before I step out on the track. I also dont know if I have the bike ready or have what I need to get.
