Here's something easy for you to try-

Grand Sport Speedway November 18th $140, ride all day, free one-on-one instruction. Special group designed for the new-to-the-track folks.

Rent leathers from Trackleather.com; PM Patrick for info or hit up the web site. Not that expensive, and they can get you gloves, boots, full leathers for a low price. You can also apply your deposit to the purchase of the gear if you fall in love with it.

Regarding if you toss your bike, well, that can happen on the street too. More likely to happen if you keep riding the pace you're describing.

Look it up, assess the value, make a decision. You're welcome to come on out and watch at Grand Sport Speedway for this trackday too if you like. They'll be more "noob" track days in the coming year, we think that GSS may turn in to a great teaching track for us this year.

the problem is people will ride on the streets to "their limits" and risk it all, but won't goto the track.......kinda screwed up logic.

I think most people scrape pegs first, because they build up the confidence to lean more, but haven't learned to hang off yet. And it can happen not only from going too fast, but something as simple as having to change your line in a curve to avoid something.

Hang on there, I haven't scraped a thing on my Z1000. I don't ride like an idiot on the street, I have nice fat chicken strips. I'm too worried about my own hide on the street to care about scraping a knee/boot/peg.

I WANT to go to the track. I want to explore the limits of the bike. I know that when I get there I'm going to push my bike hard and I want to have a track bike that I won't worry about as much as I would my street bike.

If I make a newbie mistake and tank my street bike (which is hardly race oriented) I'm screwed out of my street bike. If I drop a track bike that has a more race oriented suspension and track plastic then I still have a bike to ride around town.

I plan on having full leathers (that fit), race boots, etc when I eventually do get to the track.

Forgive me for attempting to be financially responsible and not wanting to risk my main (and basically only) bike on the track where *my* chances of crashing are much higher.

FWIW, my full coverage insurance on my bike will reimburse me for the value of the bike should I be involved in an accident on the street. I don't believe the same applies to an accident on the track. I'm not advocating riding like a hooligan just because of insurance, just trying to take into account where the most potential loss is. Track bike == expendable to me cause that's what it was bought for. Street bike == crusing around town, not racing.

Sheesh.

It actually does for Ridesmart events.
Ridesmart presents itself as a riding school, not a trackday organization (basically the same thing, but just a silly name thing ).
I know a person who totaled his bike and got a full coverage.

but not all insurance companys will cover it, I know state farm does but I'm not sure who else though. I do know that nationwide dont because I had a long discussion with my agent about that
