We'll be led by an instructor and be on the track for around 15 to 20 minutes. Parade Laps are scheduled during the track day lunch break. You only pay when you do a track day.

The purpose of this ride is to introduce riders to the track so they may see what a track day is all about.

Also, at GSS they offer a track day class specifically for lightweight bikes (inline 4s 500cc or less) and motards.

1. We're going clockwise
2. GSS isn't for stunters
3. Sometimes we split the group by experience level so not every Parade Lap session is the same just as every group ride is not the same

No offence, but counter clockwise sucked the last time, Especially when the instructor took off, and did not show me the racing line... I am ready for a track day, but I preffer TWS (Texas World Speedway) or MSRH.
I love you Bevo!

NO offense taken, but if you want instruction, pay for a trackday. Parade laps are not designed to provide those attending with any formal instruction. It's a chance for you to check out the track, for free. The instructors are only out there to control the group during that session.

It's just a heads-up for anyone thinking that wheelies are allowed on the track
