I will be at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on Monday, and not riding. I have gloves but they are men's XS (Cortech Adrenalines) and S Sidis (gauntlets). I don't usually use the Sidis on the track bc the cuff doesn't fit too well over the sleeve of my leathers, but I'll bring them both and if they'll fit, you're welcome to borrow them. I'm track marshaling, so you'll know how to find me.

Also, the website is ridesmart.info.

Here is a MH thread about a REALLY good deal for TWS (Texas World Speedway) this Monday (better than the 50% off deal!): http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=257896

Be sure and use the code 2.PR.TWS (Texas World Speedway).L1.50.5/27/13 to register online, you first have to create an acct. The codes are case/space sensitive--no spaces! Don't register for the gear online when using another code, bc it only lets you use one at a time, and will try to charge you for the gear. Just take your DL for collateral to the morning registration table the day of the event, and tell them you need the gear.

See ya Monday!

And thanks everyone, for helping these guys/girls get to the track!

Everything Ridesmart has offered, Fastline does also, as does Track Tactics and LSTD and Whoopie. We each offer a little different style...higher or lower cost, bigger smaller grids, instructor ratio, track choice, etc...but most guys just bop around from org to org as fits there schedule. You can't really go wrong, and try them all out to see how you like them.

Come out to the MH BBQ on Sunday with us at Fastline and figure it all out without the pressure of riding too. You can borrow my Roadracing World "Trackday Guide" that will tell you everything you need to know about how to get on the track, safely. All of the trackday organizations that sponsor this board will get you up to speed, with all the gear you need at no cost, with door to door service if needed.

As a huge proponent of getting fast street guys to the track and off the streets, I say chose any org that has a day that fits your schedule and sign up sooner rather than later. Once you are ready to pass the stage of Novice / Level one you can grab a buddy, and work a half day and ride a half day at no cost to you. If you are on a budget, race takeoff tires, available at Fastline thru our tire vendor SCRC, go for $75 to $100 a set and are fine for everything but all out full race pace where that 10% extra grip puts you on the podium.

So get your to the track and join the fun. You'll be very very glad you did.

Peter

enjoy the best thing i ever did was finally getting on the track.
everyone will help you with no questions. all the Track day folks are great
people. Come to the Moto Houston BBQ on Sunday the 26th. AS Mr P stated it will be a good learning experience to see beforehand. I spend 3 yrs showing up and working cornors and crash truck before i finally got a race bike to ride.
Come see me at the CMA tent will be riding novice level . Bless and have
a blast.
