so ... how does one join this club?

Watching everyone on the track at the BBQ and getting a few laps in myself during the parade session has just cemented my desire to get on the track, so, other than getting my gear and bike in order, how does one actually participate?

Does one have to wait for a "noob" day at the track? Or are there slots open at every trackday for noobs?

Just on a sidenote, your 250 will do awesome out there! A lot of those turns are tight and it is a technical track. I wished I still had my 250 when I was out there!

yeah, come on out Logan and be sure to take the class, that way you get some 1 on 1 instruction and some very good video instruction as well.

actually there is no more room for noobs...:BangHead: Now that everyone is getting to take hits off the trackpipe I won't be able to get a spot in the future events:laughing6 For real though, I think I found my new addiction. Time to quit smoking to save money for new tires and trackday fees The track is where it's at. GL on getting setup. I found used leathers through someone on the board and got some boots for very cheap (free) from another board member. If you want to try it out first, renting boots and leathers may be your better option. Hope to see you out there.

as a noob, i'd rather do one of Buck's "regular" days, because you get the most instruction, and will have one on one with the instructor all day.

LSTD day - C group with rider's school

Ridesmart - Level 1 with horrible instructions, and an overcrowded track, but hey! it's cheap. i guess saving a couple bucks is worth every penny!
(oh yeah, i forgot to mention there VERY HIGH QUALITY t-shirts they sell 5 bucks or something like that. they make it through TWO WHOLE WASHES before the graphics come off. but hey, it's cheap!)

This is CarbonR1 giving 1 on 1 instruction.

Can it get any better than that?

:laughing6

Seriously though, +1 on the class and Group C at LSTD. I had a great time and learned tons.

The closest LSTD event is at TWS (Texas World Speedway), which is a fast track and not as favorable to ride on with a 250 as MSRH but nevertheless, I have seen many Ninja250s out there and they all have a blast. It would be worth it going there for LSTD.

You can do it like JETG, have two trackdays a month, switch it up between MSRH and LSTD! :icon_bigg
