OK. Just so you know... must people that crash at the track go home in 1 piece... they crash... pick up and try again.

what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.. and in this case you will be a very weak person.

Hopefully beltway 8 hasn't taught you the limits of traction under panic braking. This is a limit you can approach gradually on the track in successive turns.

yep you need to stay the away from any track and any track day group... stay away from meets and rides...and have fun on the beltway doing your 65 mph or less...and there really is no need to post up here, we go might scare you with all our talk about track days and having condifence in your bike and yourself... you might feel we are trying to corrupt your world... don't want that to happen...
since you are greatly conerned about your safety and getting to work the next day, maybe you should just sell that 250 and get a pickup and install steel panels all over it when you do for a ride... maybe you won't get hurt...

I can't even do 65 at some of those tracks... so you saying you have no desire to go over 65 well... if you do 65 at GSS who knows if that is a safe speed for you... its a very challenging and technical track that forces you to become a better rider which will make you better at 65 on the freeway too..

What do you mean stupid, I got a 3.8 GPA. I'm a realist. If you wanna race, do it on 4 wheels, the way it's meant to be. All this track stuff will not save you from the numerous traffic code violations your gonna commit
