Hey Tony, or someone else up on the Northside, you got some room in your trailer to take my bike down there. I don't want to ride there for a track day again the last time wasn't too bad but I hurt that much more the next day.

Oh and sorry for the thread jack.

Go out there have fun, socialize with everyone, and don't crash like I did on my first day its no fun. The bills after are even less fun.

Lilmckee, you can ask anyone for help and they will be there for you. Ego at home is best, there will ALWAYS be faster and slower riders out there.
Ride at your own pace.
What to bring:
Chair(s)
Ice chest (put a small towel in it for your neck/head after a session to help cool down)
Water
Food (bananas, some granola bars, a sandwich, etc.)
A fan (it may get pretty hot, who knows?)
5 gal gas can
Tire gauge and some basic tools
I would highly recommend one of those coolmax type longsleeved shirts (they help get your leathers off and on and really help keep you cooler)
Open mind

^^agreed, with bumblebee!!

Forget all the bullshit u learned on the street it's probably wrong and STOP, LISTEN, and PAY ATTENTION to the instructors!!

I've ALWAYS PRAISED the leadership and instruction of the guys at MSR, they make getting around that track simple and painless, as long as ur able to be attentive to their instruction.

Buck will probably say it once or twice, but "u have to go slow to be fast" so don't expect to pull CMRA times out there on ur 1st day.

If u can keep up with Jimmy, that should be a cake walk, but DON'T even think about ur times on ur 1st day, it's pointless and if ur like me it will likely discourage u when u don't do what u expect.

MSR is a lot more technical than it looks, LEARN the race line and good body position are ur keys to success and by all means stay hydrated!

In my opinion times are always useless. (Unless you are truelly putting in alot of time at the track and want a baseline to work off of to see if certain changes make a difference.) Either you want to get around the person in front of you or you don't.

No prob, need anything while ur there just ask the instructors, they are EXTREMELY APPROACHABLE, and will extend advice to you all day.

I got a lot of good feedback from the fellow riders, but some of it was all over the place, so I couldn't line the info up and apply it appropriately. The instructors kinda break it down step by step a little easier for u to follow!
