it's a bit different from MSRH.....think of MSRH....except the lanes are twice as wide, and the turns are split apart a little further. once you get comfortable, it's a fast track indeed. you can easily find your top speed in the straightaway. make sure you use your break markers.....don't wanna run wide at this track, or you'll be running off at a high speed.

Candie, TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a very fast track. Average speed is much higher. Most turns are taken at a much higher speed. MSR-H's first big right hand carousel, the long left hand sweeper up at the end of the straight after the diamond back and the turn right before you go over the bump, all these you will think of out at TWS (Texas World Speedway). TWS (Texas World Speedway) was the first track I rode on and then I did MSR-H, just the other way around than what you are doing and those turns I just described felt familiar to me from TWS (Texas World Speedway).

I strongly recommend the school for $50. Well worth it, great instruction! Learn the lines and fine the one that is comfy for you as there are several different lines for TWS (Texas World Speedway), unlike MSR-H; especially into turn 1. Some folks go way up high on the bank and come almost straight down and then turn into 2 and others make a big sweeper out of 1.

Take it easy in the first few sessions and after lunch, just have fun.

Yes TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a faster track for the faster riders. Being in C group you can take it as fast or as slow as you would like. I would not be to worried about it. You have track time under your belt and you know how you should approach a new track. (with respect and patience) Taking the rider school will be the best $50 you ever spend and you can ask any of us questions if you need some help.

Plus when you get used to riding with several people it makes it a lot of fun to chase each other around.

They are usually at TWS (Texas World Speedway) but I would call Motorcycles Unlimited and get the details.

Thanks Patrica! I think I will sign up for the school, just so I can give Henry a hard time!! I love MSR-H, but thought it would be cool to try something new! I am a little nevous because it is such a fast track, beings I am still pretty slow! But, that is fine by me I would rather take my time a learn slowly instead of pushing myself and getting hurt or worse yet hurting my pretty bikes!!
