Rowdy, work on your foot positioning. You'll be dragging your toes and damaging your boots or worse if you don't get the of your feet on the foot pegs. It's a bad habit that you need to break.

If you really liked the track experience you should consider getting the race fairings for your bike. OEM plastics are expensive and hard to replace.

LSTD, great choice. I think i enjoyed it becuase their is no instruction. Its pretty much ride your own ride, no classes, no pressure and probablya smaller grid.

However if you wanted instruction, there would be plenty of people who would be willing to offer you advice. Also you can try so many different things.

Remember their is really no one way to ride. I doubt rossi, stoner, marquez have the same body posistion and such. I wish i could go, i may send a letter to TWS (Texas World Speedway)!!!

In the street group there will be instructors, but because that's a CMRA practice day there will be much less hand-holding for the newbs than a typical day.
