track day question

Anyone ride their bike to college station from this area for the cmra class. money is tight and am wondering if this is a good idea. I don't plan to race like crazy at the mock race at the end of day. can pretty much get everything up there in a backpack. I can wear my gear up there and change into something else. I have a van reserved too. and a hitch is hard to come across since its coming down to the wire.

there are plenty of people going see if you can buddy up. many will tell you its not wise to ride your bike there since you will get tired and might not be up for all the riding. but if youre a soldier, do it but be warned.

Might not be a good idea. Some tracks (i don't know about TWS (Texas World Speedway)) will not store your stuff for you and if you crash and have no one to collect your gear by the end of the day... The best they will do is stack it up outside the gate and leave it.
This happened to a guy at Barber in June. He crashed pretty hard and his girlfriend had to drive up from Atlanta to get his stuff.
Any way even if you don't crash, and you prolly won't, you will for sure be tired and not feel like a couple more hours in the saddle.

i wouldn't. i'm sure there will be someone willing to take you along with them on a trailer.

you might not go all out and crazy on the mock race.......but you will be riding all day, so you will be tired, and might not be up to the ride home.
