I don't know about "B" but "A" is true in everything you do.

If this is your first track day, I hope I can be there. I'm in Pearland and always willing to help out or answer questions.
Welcome to the addiction... Open your arms wide and embrace the trackpipe.

Yep ... my first track day ... totally excited ... been spending the past couple of weeks getting ready ... getting stuff for the bike and rider ... new tires, new helmet, new old suit and new boots. Last thing to do is take the bike to patrick to let him give it a once over and an oil change. I'd like to change out the front shock springs, but not sure if i can get that done in time.

Anyway, I've been making some good aquantences here online and look forward to making even stronger friendships at the track. If you do go ... look for the yellow 250 and let me know what I'm doing wrong.

I'll be sure to have them video it just in case there's hillarity to be had.

yup that would be me ... actually it's a backpack I bought in England. It's made for biker riders, there is a flap that goes over the back and is made of that reflective material. Carries my laptop, lunch and work shoes ... plus adds visibility.

Wear your biker shorts, dude. Going indian is fun at first, but later you will regret having to put neosporin on your taint.
True story; couple years ago I go on a ride with about 7 guys. whe head up toward brenham, it's the coldest day of the year, like 16 degrees. no one wants to wuss, so we just keep riding. I'm wearing longs johns, 2 t-shirts, a long sleeve t shirt and a sweatshirt under my 1 peice suit. I'm still freezing worse than I can ever remember. we eat at dairy queen, and head back. about 20 miles away I realize I need a comfortable bathroom with magazines and maybe a shower. I'm flying home and when I get there, the suit has me in a death grip, refusing to get off. I'm fighting the suit and fighting my balloonknot for control on both fronts. I'm now sweaty, calling my chick to get here ASAP. I'm trying to dislocate my shoulder so I can free myself of this cowhide gulag, when I realize - I'm about to blow mud in my suit. With the strength of 400 supermans and the garage door opening to the shouts of "hold it I'm almost there" I make a final effort to burst from my layered placenta and drag my now numb lower half to the Throne of Safety. Boots, and most of the gear still dragging through the hall.
The moral of this story is, get a 2 piece. and avoid dairy queen.
