My guess is you'll leave your bike all taped up and track ready because you'll be addicted and you'll want to come to MSRH on 6/22.

See ya there

2. Full tank plus 5 gallons should be fine.
3. whichever is easier

Looks like I might be able to borrow this rig from a friend. If he gives me the ok then its looking like I may be able to provide someone with a ride.

If your trailer falls through, ride out there and tape it up on site! Getting out there is more important than doing it perfectly

I'm still shopping for a trailer... and a track bike. I've been riding out to hit the track anyway on a 550 lb, shaft drive, air cooled Italian tractor. You're going to kick yourself for not getting out there earlier, might as well minimize the amount of self--kicking.

Did you sign up for TWS (Texas World Speedway) on the 27th? If so, where are you located.

that is the standard complaint for the novice/L1 group with Ride Smart, always has been...
the student to instructor ratio is higher with Ride Smart than with any other organization out there, and the grid is always over booked IMO.
At other levels the difference is not as pronounced.
They are often the CHEAPEST group to do your first day with, but as with anything you evaluate what you want to get out of the money you are spending.
