As usuall we will provide lunch, LOTS OF INSTRUCTION by expert CMRA racers, and video to help you see what you are really doing. Registration will open 2/3 so sign up early to reserve your spot on the track. This will be the only NOOB day until late October, so please tell your friends.

Gear - Boots, Full length gloves, 1 or 2 piece suit. 1 piece I believe that it has to have a full zipper around the waist
Bike - Tape up all lights and remove license plate

Yes JonEric covered the basics of it.
  • Track is MSRH on 288 South just north of Angleton.
  • $175 for the trackday including lunch.
  • Full-length gloves
  • Full height boots
  • 1 or 2 piece LEATHER suit, no mesh or textile suits allowed.
  • Full-face helmets only.
  • Good tread on tires (no threads)
  • All lights on bike taped up (suggested to pull fuses)
  • No license plate
  • Good brake pad life remaining
  • Self-closing throttle
  • No fluid leaks of any sort
  • Firm pressure on brake lever (check fluid if it's not a firm feeling)
  • Maximum 25-30 riders
  • Video of you on the track (Buck/Larry will follow you) is incldued, just ask.
If you don't have all your gear you can rent them from some places. I know Patrick offers them but I don't remember the prices. PM him if you're interested.

It's not required but it will make you feel much more comfortable if you have your suspension setup PRIOR to the trackday. $25 usually and will make it more easier/safer to have a good time.

I don't believe the above post mentioned it, but to register you must EMAIL Buck at slowboattx@yahoo.com and NOT send him a PM. Any other methods won't get you a reserved spot.

Thats all I can think of right now. Ask if you have more questions.

Do it you won't regret it.
You can't have more fun anywhere. It is intense and the best part you are the one in control.
Ride within your abilities and turn the excitement handle with your right wrist, you'll do fine!

You will be happy with the noob day. It will be geared towards your needs.
