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?
Did you earn the money? Then why not spend a little on your self. right:

The issue is you are worried about the future, which is good but, if you are not having fun now while yo are young.... are you really going to care how great your life is when you can't do because you are old. Seriously though.... it is about balance. I could invest alot more then I do but, (and I do invest) sanity comes with a price as well. And, that is about $150 for a track day. The final issue is you probably are just getting into this phase in your life and well, you will hopefully be earning a little more in a few years and be able to play a little more. right:

If today was the last day of your life... what would you do?

and j14 juss wondering what kinda times are you putting down?
honestly don't know, I'm not concerned abou that right now...I'm trying to work on my body positioning; however, I can tell you I'm not the slowest out there. Mostly instructors are the one's that pass me and a couple of riders, I'm just trying to get comfortable out there. I'm not worrying about times because if I go and push without basics, I'll be in a whole lot of mess.

Re: When was your first track day??

Mine was on Aug. 9 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with LSTD. It's really funny to look back at some pictures. To me, it's one of those things that you get a lot better at without trying all that hard to. Anyways, now I'm sponsored by Worth Hydrochem of Houston, and I only run a 2:03

Re: When was your first track day??

About 1997/1998 started racing YSR's. Did some Califorina Superbike School, Jason Pridmore's STAR before the idea of trackdays came around.
