Yes, LSTD will be there in June.

Only posting since Ride Smart is sold out now and this thread is posted under "Taking it to the Track" and not the Ride Smart forum area. No thread jack intended towards Ride Smart. Mentioning since you said you wanted to ride TWS (Texas World Speedway) and it will be the last option for any motorcycle track day org.

Correction - I was going by Craig's post above. I checked the Ride Smart website and there are still spots open for Sat and Sun in Level 3 - Advanced.

Saturday looks to be a great day and Sunday's weather is improving! Already down to a 40%. That is about the norm for TWS (Texas World Speedway). Looks like we are in for a fantastic weekend!

Sorry, I was going to do some more testing on the 250. I should have clarified. There are spots open in level 3.

Am I the only one that's slightly disturbed at the liberal nature they are taking in terms of adding more and more open spots?

They are only allowed to open new spots when ppl cancel. They are not making the grids bigger.
Why would you think that? Did you read the "no space! What can I do section" ?
Don't be a drama queen steve!!

Haha I got blacked flagged last time at TWS (Texas World Speedway) for passing "too aggressively" which imo, wasn't even bad. I just don't want to get in trouble again because there will be 100 riders on throttle happy bikes.

And word on the street is that they added more space not from cancelations. Can't name my sources though ha.

Don't get me wrong, I love ridesmart but I just like everyone out there, just want to have fun in a relatively safe environment.

Well unless his name is Randy and works for Ride Smart, I'm pretty sure that is just hearsay. As per state law we are only allowed so many riders on the track at one time, including instructors.

LOL "word on the street", this is track riding, not street!!!!

True true, but lets say state law allows 70 riders on the track (extreme exageration) and Ride Smart typically puts out 45 because they feel that's the "safe" number even if the state law doesn't mandate it. In theory they could still put another 25. Just because it's allowed doesn't mean it's as "safe."
