MSRH-H, been there and done it already, not bad.

I have no need to show you or anyone else "what i got" i know my limits, they begin with my family, my fiance, my kids, my life, friends, mortgage, job, and basically everything else in this world.

I have learned from others, and have no desire to do something that will put my life in danger intentionally to try and show someone something.

You guys ride your ride and i'll ride mine, If you come around me, i'll catch you sometime somewhere. no worries here mate.

i just think that people could use a little more of their brains than what they actually do

For those responding, to clarify, I have taken MSF and have about one year experience on the street. But I feel as though the track may offer a more exhilirating experience (i.e. no traffic aka stupid Houston drivers). I'm seeking information on where to go from here. From what I've read, there are trackdays for beginners available. Which also brings up the questions: what mods do I have to make to my bike? Required gear? Etc....

No mods, just tape up your lights and maybe take off the plate, disconnect the headlight.

Gear: Full leathers, boots, helmet.

I cannot recommend cornerworking for a day enough. You'll learn a lot about what goes on at the track, plus, you'll earn a free trackday.

no mods, just make sure nothing falls off...lol

Talk to BUCK and ask when a good day to ride with him might be, if you decide to Ride with Ridesmart or LSTD, they have diff levels off experience groups to ride with(you are on a track with riders of same rideing ability)


as far as gear, one peice leathers are the way to go, most orgs(if not all) allow 2 peice suits...

you must have gloves and boots that cover your ankles....

all these guys left out the most important part......you gotta come prepared with an open mind, and humble yourself to ask QUESTIONS. do not act like you know what you are doing.....first time trackdayers usually end up eating pavement when they come to the track with an ego.

Get in on a trackday and buddy up with an instructor.
Find someone at the track to buddy up with that day (instructor)

Fast on the street is not the same as fast on the strait.
No reason to really worry about fast yet anyhow.
Work on SMOOTH first and fast will fall into place.

If you want to, we can hook up at the next track event.
What part of town do you live?

why can't it be done at an WWW.LSTD.COM trackday on one of their optional tracks?

LSTD has been around for a very very long time...

http://www.lstd.com/html/requirements.html

You'll find answers to most of your questions on their website...

If you still have more questions that's np - you can email any of the three owners: Steve@lstd.com Wade@lstd.com or Jeff@lstd.com.
