Re: When was your first track day??

Did my first track day in '99 at The Motorsport Ranch. Advanced Motorsports and Mototek used to do them maybe three times a year... that's it. The sooner you get on the track, the better. You really don't know what you're missing. We have had some teens come out who just started driving, but can ride a bike proficiently. It's a great time and chances are you wont regret it.

Re: When was your first track day??

I make a pretty good living and Katy makes more than the national average family income... I don't see how people throw sooo much money into this whole track/racing thing. Let's say you drop $4k this year into bike prep, repairs, replacements, fuel, trackdays, race fees and whatnot. And that's not a high estimate. Do you guys have any idea how much that $$ is worth in 20 years? You'd be amazed at what compound interest does! I drop around $1500-$2000 a year in bike stuff and maybe I'm just cheap but that seems like a buttload to me. I know several folks who have in upwards of $10k on credit cards and know of 1 who has upwards of $20k in credit cards all trying to do this track/racing thing.

Once you guys get married you'll cut your budget down some... I would do more but it's not just my money. It's my and my wifes money. I mean we pay cash for everything but our first new car and our house. So when I go spend $150 on a trackday, $250 on new tires and then have to change the oil and brake fluid I'm looking at around $500 for a trackday. It just seems selfish to me to spend so much of our money on myself.

Ok... I ranted and now I feel better.

Does anyone else have this delimna?

I'm sponsored by UofH . and I get deals on some bike parts at times so I guess u could say that's somewhat of a sponsor. Oh and work sponsors me as well . Not for long though cuz my term there is almost up b4 I go back to school for my last yr of engineering.
