probably not...I think I will stick to fastline until I get a little better, they have a better student/instructor ratio...once I move up to a higher level then I might ride with ridesmart again....

Yeah, someone else just this weekend told me the same thing. Fastline has less students per level. Next time around I'll have to give them a try.

There's nothing wrong with being what you call slow on the track. As long as you're predictable with your lines 99.9% of the faster guys likely won't even notice you. And it sounds like you're focused on being consistent and keeping good lines. So...enjoy the laps.

The cool thing about track days is that they have something to offer for a wide variety of riders, from those who just want to explore their machines away from the world of cops and cars, to those who want to improve their skills and test their limits in a safer place, to those who know the first time around a track that they have to race.

I really like Fastline too. If you are concerned about instructor/student ratio, also consider Lone Star Track Days. They also have quality instruction for all levels of rider (including beginners at the track), and will be up at TWS (Texas World Speedway) this weekend for two days, October 1 and 2.
