Nope, I haven't been to the track since Labor Day wknd at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I plan to be at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on 11/30, weather permitting. I need a fix.

Check out austinsportbikeriders.com and Austin Sportbike Riders (ASR) on fb. We have about 500 members (make sure you get the right one, there are a few with the same/similar names). I'm one of the organizers there. We do group rides, social functions, charity events, etc. Great group of people.

oh, must have been another girl with pink on her bike, my mistake.

i havent been to TWS (Texas World Speedway) yet, i want to check it out but cold weather plus cold track surface doesnt sound very fun so i might sit this one out.

i'll definitely have to join the group but i cant participate right now in off-track riding, until i pick up another bike.

I think that was probably Sherron you saw, or maybe Laura. They have both painted their bikes black and pink (mine was the orig lol, well aside from a friend's but hers was a dif color, and she doesn't ride anymore). We (ASR) have a lot of ppl that ride track too. Join up and meet some new ppl. We have our Nov M&G at Main Event this Sunday.

And I realized I made a mistake. I was at MSRH in Sept. I rode one day, and track marshaled the other. Just seems like it's been forever lol!

That was Laura. Lefu on forums.

And awesome! Hope to see ya around.

I've not been to H2R but once, and that was for parade laps a few yrs ago. At that time, it was run by Elite TD's, and I didn't care for their setup/costs. The track was pretty bumpy too, but I understand they have repaved portions in the last year or so. I know it's a short track--1.5ish miles. They now run their MC days differently (sounds like it's a little better than before, in some aspects. Think they're open TD's, no instruction, not sure if there's even a split in levels.) Keith Hertell is now doing CMRA licensing there, a/o this week, which is pretty cool. The track is 10-15 min from my door, but I worked for Ride Smart for a few yrs (til about a month ago), so i just did Ride Smart days. What part of ATX are you in?

BTW: I'm an admin, and haven't added/approved anyone on the fb page, or seen a new member join the meetup page (austinsportbikeriders.com) in a few hours. Be sure you join the right one. Both our sites have about 500 members, give or take.

(I know there's one or two that have similar names, so it can be confusing.)

whoever the girl was she was pretty quick.

oh, yeah i wasn't on the right one but i just joined so let me in

im in RR. im thinking about paying up the fees to H2R so i can go more frequently but i definitely want to check the track out before going out there and paying up the cash. i want to go check out the other tracks more often but my time is kinda limited these days. too bad COTA is not open for track days haha

I added you. There's a member on the fb site, Mike Viper is his SN IIRC, and Keith Hertell as well. PM them or post up on the page and tag them. They can probably hook you up with a trial TD/track time (you'll have to pay, I'm sure, but w/o the membership).

And Lefu is in ASR. She's not done too many TD's, she's picked it up quickly.
