Re: How are you getting to the track?

i need to do everything on my bike and get my leathers too, , im so late.

i have a question regarding track day. Arturo or anyone can probably answer it for me.

1. do u bring your own lunch or is there somewhere you can buy food?
2. since it must get very hot, do u usually where an under suit or just like a t-shirt and boxers underneath your suit?
3. what time do have to be at the track?

Re: How are you getting to the track?

Just get the Underarmour brand stuff at academy. Basiclly it wicks the sweat from your skin and lets you get out of your leathers with out the help of 3 other people. right:

Re: How are you getting to the track?

keeps you really cool... and makes jumping in and out of leathers easy... just feel the fabric and you'll see what i mean...

nike makes some too... so just go to academy and pick whatever suits you... can't go wrong... *right:

Re: How are you getting to the track?

Did I mention it won't take 3 extra people to help you get in and out of your leathers.

Also it is another layer of protection if you go down. Just incase your suit gets a little warm while sliding.

I will probably not be on pace until after a few sessions.... I need to get my reference points down and work on my lines. right:
