Get full gauntlets instead. I have a pair of helds you can borrow if you need them.

MSRH with ridesmart. And they should let you with those gloves, they did for me last time with similar gloves. Although I do recommend the gauntlet.

I just noticed those gloves are 170$. For that price you could get a really good gauntlet with lots of protection.

You'll have to tape it up yourself when you get there.

I really recommend trailering or hitching a ride. At the end of the day you will be very tired and riding home will be the last thing you feel like doing, not to mention de-taping the lights and filling up your tires back to street psi. Also a good idea in case of any crashes too.

There is a gas station just past MSRH on 288.

Lastly, there is a covered paddock area for your gear however there is no place to secure items like lockers so be cautious of leaving valuables unattended.

Those gloves are fine. Like everyone else mentioned, I recommend full gauntlet gloves in the future.

thanks for help, trying to see if I can do this first track day !
MSRH has pumps on the property. You'll need to tape all your lights when you arrive, with blue painters tape. I'd recommend removing your mirrors but you have the option of folding them in and taping them.

A few people do ride their bikes to the track. It'll probably be a miserable ride home after a long day. And then there is always the possibility of crashing and your bike not being rideable. Trailering is going to be your best option.

Let me know if you'd like to attend, I have coupons for first time guys.

Space is limited and it'll probably sell out in the next 36 hours. Just an FYI.

Morv, I'll be attending this Saturday. You're welcome to pit with Po-po and I. I always have painter's tape and air. Plus you can leave your backpack in with our stuff or toss it in my truck during the day if you're worried about any valuables.

I'd offer you a spot on my trailer, but I think you're nowhere near where I live.
