All Girls Who Didn't do the Trackday

I know we have tons of ladies on here that didn't go to the MSR-H All Girls Trackday on the 2nd. Come out of your hiding ...

Honestly, I was just wondering, why weren't you able to make it, didn't want to make it or what would it take for you to a ladies' only trackday?

I would make a poll but it will just get spammed up again. :BangHead:

I wasn't able to make it first because I thought I didn't have the finances, fixed that but then I was still worried about the dragging exhaust pipe issue on my Viffer, gotta get those dang Ohlins. In the end, I figured, what the heck, let me try my best and go but then the trip to Rochester, NY came up. I am definitely planning on doing the next one.

So, what is your excuse? Don't be shy. It would be awesome to have more of these trackdays and I think very highly of Buck to put up with the ladies :laughing6 and offer this awesome opportunity. What would it take for you?

why doesn't all the guys go out to the track? i believe you will get the same answers....

people ride bikes for different reasons, whether it be cruising, stunting, posing, trackriding.....you can't persuade everyone to hit the track. i also think it is the fear of crashing that stops some people from going to the track as well. also afraid that they will be the slowest one out there (it's a pride thing). i have a few friends that won't probably go to the track for a while, if even.

I went on Saturday just to observe, to see if I would be interested in doing a track day. And you can bet I'll be at the next one. Riding for sure! All you ladies looked good out there. Even the ones who were riding track for the first time. I was so impressed!

I am not looking into turning all ladies into track junkies but I know that we have a lot more ladies on the board and riding and if some of them are on the fence, then it would be nice to know what it would take for them to try it out or, if they are not interested at all, that would be good to know too.

I am sure Buck or other orgs will get requests for more ladies' trackdays and it would be nice to see what it would take to get another one and make it a full one at that.

some may look at it in terms of $

Why spend 300.00 to ride on a track for 4.5 hours when I can ride Crabb River Rd. for free.

200 for track
100 to rent leathers

I would have gone, but I just finished my msf course and haven't even rode my bike yet, I want a little more practice before I put myself or others in harms way due to lack of experiance. Also I know I would definately be the slowest, however that would not be a pride thing for me because I would rather be slower and stay on the track than pull a xanthia

Holy. . .$300?!? That's 30 manga. Five uber-gadoober rare plants. A pallet of moss stone to landscape the front yard. Gas for a thousand dumpster diving trips. I was curious yet hesitant when I thought it was, don't laugh, $50-75. It isn't that I'm not willing to spend $ on something I love, but I guess I haven't been bit by the track bug. I get how it can infest one in the the sinew and marrow, and likely a trip out to watch would be enough to prompt me to say "I want it," but watching and not doing always sucks. :icon_bigg Plus, it's always unwise for one such as myself to intentionally seek out new, expensive hobbies.

I agree with you jet to an extent, but shouldn't one be comfortable with thier bike before jumping on a track with a bunch of others that may or may not know what they are doing. It's the order of life, you have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run right.

JETG, I agree. I am totally into riding horses and there are always clinics to go to, lessons to take, books to read, to improve your skills. A lot of folks never ride without an instructor all their life.

But then I see folks taking the MSF (if at all), getting on a motorcycle, hop on the street and tear it up out there without any further guidance, schooling or anything. Trackdays are perfect for schooling, so is weekend parking lot drills. It all makes street riding that much more fun and safer.

I grew up at the track with my parents, used to go the track watching the Porsche Club at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and when I went last year in April to watch the bikes, I knew I wanted to be out there! I wanted to be out on the Ninja250 before I hit 200 miles but was told to wait a little at least, lol. Now I was out there and know how much there is to learn. :notworthy

It is different for different people, but in either case, a riding school at a track is always a good thing.

Well....Buck knows why I had to back out... This "ladies" day came too close after my vacation, and I didn't want to NOT have enough $$ for vacation. I don't have money flying out of my , but it would be cool to see that, no? :confused1 LOL

I have all my gear and whatnot, so that's not an issue. A track day just has to be at the right time (in the pay schedule) for me. I've already paid for my tracktime for Moto-gina (Las Vegas) in October, so at least that one is in my future! Plus, I'll get to crash...oops I mean ride...their bikes!

I've done plenty o' track days in my car(s)...I'm anxious to do one on the bike

Racing would be a new hobby

How would it sound if it was announced as a riding school with instructions to further improve your skills? (which it is :icon_bigg ) If you think of it this way?

I actually might do the HART novice school at Hallett too... I've already got it "pre-authorized" At the very least I know that track backwards and forwards!
