carefull this post from old guy

I have done one that I worked corners at and loved it.

As was stated earlier it is not racing. I raced middle weight super bike endurance for several years before the track day and they are very different.

As I see it track days have changed the face of racing here in Texas. Before there were many track days when a novice came on to a race track it was rare to see him keep up now yellow shirts may be near the front.

2 1/8. Had my first one with LSTD at TWS (Texas World Speedway) last year and then noobday with Buck at MSR-H in March. Third one in July with LSTD at TWS (Texas World Speedway) was cut short by having someone hit me and knock me out in the first session.

I am still trying to recover from that, so no matter what, no more trackdays for me this year. I did learn a ton though and it improved my street riding immensly.

That does got a ring to it. Heck Doug if you do it, I will help. That way we can ride Ducs without paying crazy prices for them.

Were you that scared to run into me at the track?


Moved to Minneapolis to be with my boyfriend about a month ago.

i finally got out on the track... not an actual track day but got out on GSS for about 10 laps, short track especially for a busa but was nice not worrying about cars and debris, i had just run the sweeper around the track too, so it was really nice, it's a good place to practice slow corners, 25 mph up to about 55 mph corners at least on the busa, but i have no more chicken strips!!

Not stupid, I know exactly what you mean.

Now, if I can get a track all to myself with just an instructor, that would be the way to go.
