Exactly, actually come out and learn to ride your bike for what it is designed to do.

+1 Sign up for the noob day and just take your time practicing your new skills in a safe place.

Sweating is good for you and you could do 1/2 days so it would not be as strenuous. :icon_bigg

2 Can ride crab river rd for free, track is 300 dollars,-----really so possibly going down on the street is cheap or free, it can land you in jail if a cop catches you, can wreck your bike that much easier trying to push it on the street and no run offs, or you could kill yourself or someone else coming around that corner you ran wide on ???

3 Pride, swallow it and be done with pride. Get over yourself and improve on your skills, ie that is what the track does is humbles you to maybe save your life on the street, if you ride a bike in my opinion you should be required to take the MSF, wear dot/snell approved helmet, gloves, boots at min and a track day to show you are not a BADA$$ like you think you are.

Just my opinion, cause I think the track experience can and will save lifes, cause people learn there skill level is not always were they think in there head they are.

yes, my day at the track is coming and I fully look forward to it, safty first, I have grandbabies that I want to see grow up and I agree the track would definatey be safer than the street, but on the other hand some of the so called noobs haul some major a$$ and it would be a little unsettling to get buzzed at 150+ mph when you're already nervous to begin with.
