track day help

Hola, I've been in Houston for a lil bit and need someone, or people, to help get my bike to the track. Can anyone help me trailer my bike down there? I dont want to ride it there and back (fatigue v2.0). I'm interested in MSRH or TWS (Texas World Speedway) as they're not too far. I'm in 77082 area. Uhaul is not an option because the per-mile fee adds up quick. I got my own tie downs and gas can etc. I'll pay you for gas of course. If necessary, i'll even buy a harbor freight trailer and we tow our bikes with your SUV or truck. my car is just small for modifying to tow etc
I'm fully aware of how track days work so I won't leach of you at all for anything; I rode in AZ and SoCal and Can't give up the spirit. I'll appreciate this a billion times. I can help u fix stuff in the future. I was a diesel/hydraulic mech so I fix things and work with toolboxes/motorcycles/cars all too well


Thanks again.

looks like you own a 350z. I've seen people pull a harbor freight 1 bike trailer with a mini.


Just sayin' bro.

Don't do what you've seen "people" do.

If I am going to the track then I'll swing by and pick you and the bike up. Like Craig said though post up in the event roll call and I'll check there for people that need rides.

I've seen a Prius pull 2 bikes on a harbor freight. Most cars have at least a 1000lbs tow capacity which is good enough unless you have a Harley. That being said I wouldn't put a hitch on a 350z.

Depends on what side of town you are on too. That said...I'll be attending gss with fastline on Sunday 3/30. Hauling my bike plus another...but can throw one in the truck bed if need be.

Edit...I don't know this town by zip code.

I have a truck with a hitch, but no trailer. I have had 2 bikes in the bed but it was a little tight. If I'm in town on the 30th I'll be going to GSS with Fastline. I can't commit to it until the date is closer though.

Gss is a great track to learn on. Lots of turns and lower top speeds. It is the first track that I rode.

I'm signed up...and going. 77082 is out of the way for me, but if you can't find another route I'll be glad to give ya a lift and I'll just take tour de Beltway 8 down to Westpark and then around to 45. My trailer is a decent size and I know my bike fits in bed with tailgate up....but, my tow rig is an extended cab so you'll be sitting in the small backseat.

Picked up my trailer today so as soon as I get it set up for two bikes I'll be willing to give anyone a ride to an event that I'm heading to, only condition is you pay gas for the mileage that is out of the way.

Trailer is ready for transporting two bikes. I will be attending the fast line event in may 24 at msrh. Let me know if you need a ride. If you are between msrh and Beaumont it's free, anything out of the way I charge the cost in gas to go out of my way. Willing to go anywhere in the greater Houston area though.
