I realize that parade laps are no substitution for the instruction at a trackday. Thanks for the insight everyone now back to our paid programming. Is anyone riding out there for this? If you are I would like to tag along. If noone is then so be it...
90% chance I'll set this up KSU from PP1 to MSRH via Crabb. I'll post it up the Monday before the event

ok, ok... Senator, I was not missing anything about the value of parade laps, half of what I said was in jest... and yes I think parade laps are a good thing and they do get folks excited about coming back and doing a track day.. if they did not, the track day groups would not fool with having them...in the case of the guy I was responding too however, he is already a bit familiar with track days and stated he has corner worked, in his case I am not sure a parade lap is going to be of much more value...
and I am with 1FC on the fact that track diagrams did not make any sense to me until I rode the track...after I rode the track a few sessions then I could look at the diagrams and think about what I did at certain points and what I could do different to improve there... helped me to understand things that maybe an instructor did not mention, or i missed it when he did.

I'll say this, the first time I was ever at the track it was to do Parade Laps. For me it was the right thing to do before I did a Track Day.

There will be NO parade laps on the 11th.

Sorry for the confusion. The webmaster must have taken that excerpt from a previous track day. I will send a message to have that removed from the website. But feel free to come out and spectate.!!!!

my very first time to go to a track was my first track day and the experience was great... but I wish I had been there before... showed up not knowing where to park, where to put the bike, where to check in, where to tech...
bunch of good people there were of great help, they saw the look of confusion in the old man's eye and came to my rescue...
oops, just saw the no parade lap post....all is moot at this point, at least for this track day
