Well I am glad the rider is relatively Ok (being alive and all.)

Doing MSRH and TWS (Texas World Speedway) 20 times each allows you to memorize every turn. You get to practice over and over every line until perfected. Memorizing turns does not help you when you do something like the Three Sisters or the Dragon for the first time.

My advice to everyone going out there the first time is to simply take it easy. Treat it like a cruise. Take in the scenery. It is absolutely beautiful out there. Ride 50% of your ability until you understand what the place is about.

I have done only one track day and I have survived the sisters several many times! How did I do it? A mystery right? Well I can tell you that 80 year old grannies drive through there every day in their cars and do not crash. Same with 3090! Your first time out to the three sisters is not the time or place to be trying to be fast. Not to say I have not had a few "Oh !" moments out there but I was driving under my skill level enough for it to not put me down.

There are no dangerous roads just people who go too fast for the circumstances and their own experience!

I need to find a big piece of wood to knock on now.

Very good advice. I have about 15 years track experience on 4 wheels and the most dangerous times are - new track(route), new car(bike), new mods. Usually in that order.

Looking at your race time here, the best you achieved out at msrh before you quit riding was basically "just gunning it down the straights and going slow in the corners."

I enjoy when people use christian verses in everyday life. I wanted to see what book and I found this...


Matthew 15:14

King James Version (KJV)

14*Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

How motorcycle appropriate! Haha

Are you sure you "hurt my feelings" ? Or do you think youre the one with the hurt feelings bro? I'm simply just calling you out since ive seen you make fun of riders who have crashed over this past year.

So, Mister R6racer, what times are you putting down? I think that's pretty good for a guy's first race with no so much track time time under his belt.

You bring up a good point about being unfamiliar with new, more challenging roads. They are probably not what you are used to. I would like to add that track riding teaches you to "stick" a turn when you are running wide. That skill is not easily learned on the street for obvious reasons. After understanding and learning that skill, you can apply it to the street when you come to a turn and find yourself running wide.
