oh no, that was not me. that was my uncle's camera strapped to his bike. i just did the editing for him. i was the first one to wreck that trackday...in the first 30 minute session. and i also have been off roading more than once at TWS (Texas World Speedway). so i'm takin it easy on the noob day, and actually takin some instructions.

i pretty much lost all my confidence in myself from the wreck...so i'm gonna work on re-gaining it with the noob day. and i'll be on my recently acquired trackbike...so i'll be working mostly with suspension setup and getting used to the bike.

Not sure about msrh in general, but from the little information I gather about noob days....or any other kind of trackday....i would say 5-10% of the group will go down.

so out of of 30 people....depending on track conditions of course, i'm sad to say, but 1-3 people will probably go down. but we have good instructors there, so if everybody listens to all instructions, and stays within their limits....hopefully the percentage of people to go down this trackday will be 0%.

is this your first trackday?

No, I've done a LSTD last October but took it super easy and was probably the slowest out there. I've only been riding for less than a year and have lots to learn before ever thinking about pushing it to any limits.

I just hope people will take it easy and not start pushing it or getting other people in trouble through inconsiderate passing, etc.

that's cool, better to be the slowest one, then to be the one pressure washing all the mud off your bike :BangHead: . yeah, the "all level" trackdays can get kinda scary when someone passes you on the inside going about double your speed.

i'm not sure how noob days are at msrh....but it may be passing on the outside only, one of the instructor guys will be able to answer that.

and when people start pushing it.....that's when the trouble starts. if i'm gonna wreck, i'd like to do it on my own

Buck has already mentioned that stuff like this isn't allowed for this trackday. If you are out there and feel intimidated by faster people, you can talk to an instructor and get some help one on one. If people are being inconsiderate/dangerous out there please let an instructor or control rider know.

I look forward to meeting you out there.
