That was for 1 year......and I had been doing TD's every chance I got. Sure I was a better rider than when I started, I enjoyed the friends I made and enjoyed the time I spent at the track, BUT what was the point anymore? I had no intention of going racing, and certainly had nothing to prove. Giving up street riding wasn't going to happen so I stopped the TD's except for 1-2 a year.

That's an exception. Just take it easy and don't crash. Then it won't be so expensive.

IDazzle. I kinda agree with you! The hardest part is getting there! Another learning to ride with friends and just riding by yourself is understandable. Guess it kinda tells you how die hard of a rider you are! I know plenty of folks that just ride to their track days and tape up their to just ride! When I first started the ride there was extra seat time and a warm up! Super nerve wrecking riding to a track day! Not the best way but can be done if you have good tires. Money is a better excuse but that can be solved with corner working! Just depends on your goals at the track and what your trying to accomplish. If its riding and progressing with friends find some and go with them! At least do one track day and learn how to corner your Kawi'. You know you need too.

IMHO ...looks boring and expensive. Plus I don't think my VROD and the Sportster will qualify for a track day. (basically cruisers). Also not really into speed. Very seldom I hit the "ton" on either bike. Well...The Sportster (Iron 883) I have only take it to 90MPH. Above that, starts to vibrate a lot. I normally cruise the BW-8 and freeways at around 70-75MPH. I ride everyday in the City and weekends the back roads with my MC Brothers hitting the Ice Houses. I don't need more. I am very happy with my riding.

Ha!! Interesting...full Baggers on the track? I guess there are some good trick/skills to learn. Hope the Sportbike crowd don't make fun of the guys in the Baggers. One think I have noticed is the Sport crowd at track days is very arrogant and cocky. Not all people but some.

I did my first track day this year at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and it was some of the most fun I have ever had! Reason I don't do it is because I don't have leathers, full gauntlet gloves, ramp or a truck. My parents don't even know I own a bike right now actually so if I were to crash they would be pretty .

honestly some of the people on here make it seem like theres nothing good about track riding.. in all honesty how much do you guys that enjoy it, enjoy it?

I use to do karting, but after 6 years of it i started to lose interest so I bought a gs500 to start riding and learning track. I'm getting all my stuff together to start track riding and next year I'll be living in college station so I'll be close to TWS (Texas World Speedway). If the only cost will be gas, bike repairs/tyres, and the fee of it, how worth it is it? Because it honestly seems like the most fun thing possible lol
