Has anyone ever asked for a half track day? I'm sure it could be worked out. Many folks do 1/2 day cornerwork / half day ride. They maybe could split a trackday 50 / 50 and just ride morning or afternoon. But I think the inconvenience to attend a trackday and all that hauling bike and gear there and back, would make a half day's riding pleasure not worth the effort. A quick trip out and back on country roads is cheaper, quicker, but more dangerous. I live 1/2 mile off Crabb River and I've ridden it less than 10 times in 3 years, usually when a friend wants to ride one of my bikes. Not my cup of tea. But I can go to Brazos Bend and back in 40 minutes or so and get 20 nice turns in.

They have always offered half ride/half CW, but that still commits you to the track for the whole day.

Half track days are kind of a PITA considering how things work in Houston with trackday companies renting a track at a fixed rate beforehand, and then needing to sell enough rides to pay for it. In other locales where the track owners actually host the trackdays, its a lot easier to offer the half days.

I vote everyone gets everything legal then we all go ride it nice and legal. preferably in a nice large group or better yet several large groups on the same day. so the fuzz will very tired of wasting there time pulling us over and not being able to right any tickets. and we need to have the gopros running too. See if we can get arrested for illegally videoing the fuzz.

Both Rock

Both street and track are awesome. I would not give up either. There is something about the open road that sets you free, and the track that makes you a better technicle rider. I think a good way to look at Motorcycling, is we are blessed to have the freedom to choose either or both! We all need to ride within our limmits on the street or track. I just can't pick. Both are fantastik. As far as the social aspect; I always enjoy the company. Being a family of riders, some of my best memories with my boys is out riding. Anyway, I would rather be on two wheels than four.

The Brookshire residents are fed up with the early morning rides, accidents, and racing and have saught police and county invovement to reduce the amount of two wheel traffic on this road.

Most of you know the residents have not exactly been thrilled with the two wheel community: putting nails on the road, water sprinkling the road instead of their grass, placing gravel on the roadway and even this last stunt wherein a local resident parked his trailer conveniently in between a set of twisties that almost cost a few riders their lives! All we wanna do is lean a little - mannn!

Anyway, a task force will be in full force with the ability to pull over ANY and ALL bikers to verify tags, insurance, inspection stickers, and whatever suits their fancy that means mo-money for the state! A hauler will be available to tow bikes immediately and any vicarious riding antics will land you in Jail - no ticket - Jail! the block is hot folks and you've been warned! Keep the rubber side down and off this road until the heat reduces from boiling to a simmer!
Oh no! What are we going to do!?

Oh yeah, that's right, ride better roads....

It just cracks me up to remember the first time you rode with us, after a few months you have improved a lot without doing a single track day, you mentioned about riding with another group for a lot longer and never learned a thing about riding until you joined us. So now because you are doing a few track days you called yourself matured? Get real man, ever Carlos who is a lot more matured than you come out and join us on Sundays, like i said its not about riding but its about friendship but i guess some people just dont get that part.

I always find some entertainment value in how people toss around the hypocrite label.


Bryan wasn't a hypocrite about anything he said. His attitude changed over time with new experiences. That's what should happen. By definition, he matured.

I remember my early riding days. The exhiliration of finding RR for the first time and running it as fast as I could. The first few trips there I didn't think much about that being people's homes or how dangerous my behavior was to myself and other motorists.

Slowly, but surely I wised up to it though. A few brushes with police. RIP threads dotting the New Topic listings here on MH. On the news. Seeing a few oddly placed obstacles here and there on several roads. Thankfully I changed my behavior before I wrecked out somewhere.

I found the proper outlet for my eagerness to go fast and found out what fast really means. I removed myself from the headaches of people who just happen to live on a nice road for riding. My attitude towards street riding matured as a result. It is not hypocritical to look at those who do it now and call them for doing it. As long as I admit I was an when I did it too.
