that was my opinion, but it's worth an experience i suppose....and it's for a good cause (and on a sunday)....so that must be the reason for interest. the fast guys were known to do 30 somethin second lap times

try it out.....it's one of those love or hate tracks....you either love it, or you hate it.

this track is meant to be for beginners and should be a GREAT learning tool. The past history of the track with or without Ride Smart is neither here nor there. It's our time now baby, so lets just get out there, ride it, and draw our own conclusions.

Yes i do hear that it is small bike friendly, there should never be any racer level groups running out there, it is gonna be geared more toward the Noobs, C group and B group type riders. This trackday will be providing FREE instruction to all level riders.

If you haven't been to a trackday yet, this might be for you. As i said, a GREAT learning tool.

How about me and Doug's pace? We were passing novice racers like they were standing still at TWS (Texas World Speedway) Saturday. Btw it was great having lunch with you and Teresa again especially the bee part.

A trackday is a trackday, it's not really about location, it's about seat time, a chance to ride a different track, a chance for more people to get out and enjoy the benefits of motorcycling. if you don't like GSS, don't sign up for it.

Cost to rent the track has nothing to do with its location.

Lets please keep the drama out of this thread.

Take it to pm's

The track will be used for the best purpose we could find for it, and that is for teaching.

There will be plenty of instruction, plenty of track time, plenty of good times. Just like any track, there are those that it is suited better for, and from what I've heard, it's better suited for smaller bikes. However, I can't help but think that those on liter bikes couldn't benefit from this track by riding there because 1- seat time is good, 2- riding a big bike on a tight track hones your skills very well, and 3- riding is fun, being at the track is fun, and hanging with your pals at the track is fun.

Even if you don't want or need instruction, any of the above reasons is a good enough reason to come and ride!

This is a perfect "noob" day for those who were asking for one, the instruction is free, and it's for a great reason!

Did I mention "fun"?

If any of the above aren't for you, and you'd like to help out anyway, there is a way for you to donate (any amount) on-line.

Man, I hear ya, and I appreciate the offer (I may contact you on that, it's very generous), but we had 7 events at TWS (Texas World Speedway) this year, and the last one was just last Friday.

Alberto lives here in Houston, GSS asked us to come out and try the facilities, we saw a need to do a benefit td, and it's also a perfect opportunity to have a "noob" type day, along with more skilled levels of riders and have our instructors donate their time for one on one instruction.

Sounds like a win-win at GSS to me. I think it will be fun!

Props to LSTD and GSS... Two Class Acts...

Some are saying this will be the noob track for '08...

Hope folks come out and give it a spin... No doubt it's for a good cause... Not to mention tons of quality instruction at a non-race pace...

I'm down like a clown for this one!...

lots of advantages to this track, Esp. with Supermoto on the rise. I hear the SM's and minis are killing times on this track..

It should be fun as no matter what you ride!!

Keep in mind, it's a great learning tool for the newer riders of the track.
