Nah you will be fine. Just take it easy the first few sessions and get used to the environment and learn the track a little. Most fun you will ever have with your clothes on

Exactly. If you ride with a cool head and your ego in check. I think track riding is safer till you start pushing the tires to their limits. You will dig it popo do it. DO IT!!! I am not only a track addict I am a track pusher too.

Sign up to Buck's newbie day on 3/8/08 and get some rental leathers from Patrick and you will be set. You got good boots, helmet, glovers right?

btw, I would like cops more if they were cool like you.

Heck, if PoPo wants to come to MSR Houston, I'd sponsor him for the day and cover the costs. Next good day of weather. He'd still need leathers and all the gear!!! Police working their off having to deal with every day, not to mention the chance of being shot... I'm more than willing to give back and have him as a guest at MSR.

PoPo - let me know when.

Watch the weather reports and pick a day. Also look at the MSR calendar to ensure it's not closed or rented... On the weekdays the track is very empty. Just a few bikes show.... Allan, Buck on occassion, Rory, I guess GixxerBill will be there every now and again too. Leaves a very open track to play on.

Back to the thread's question, every rider knows that it is inevitable that he/she will go down, just when. MSF, trackdays, and/or ride with your head will reduce the chance of laying it down. Street riding is dangerous due to other drivers, road debris, and whatever elses out there. If you are having a six sense of bad feeling about riding, the chances are you are right, don't ride.
Everyone will lay it down. Most will make it, some won't. Some will ride again, some won't. Everyone has a number, when you time is up, your done.

I don't let it get to me to the point where I don't want to ride. I can't see myself letting this get in the way. It just amazes me that people are so confident that you WILL go down one day. Good input though. I can see a wide array of opinions and really wanted to get a feel of what you all thought since. I just hear it from both ends of the spectrum from senior riders. Thanks for the feedback.

here you go...
3/4 of members polled who had a first bike laid it down. The ones who didn't are still likely to drop or lay down a future bike.

I was determined not to wreck, I'm a very contientious rider but I didn't make it through my first year. First time was below - not my fault

Do you really HAVE TO lay it down?

Next incidents were on the track - bonehead errors - So yeah, it's bound to happen but doesn't necc. have to.

there is a reason accidents are not called on purposes. happens.

you are better off accepting that happens, decide wether or not its worth it to you, and try to be prepared.

Actually in legal terms they are not called ( accidents ) any longer... now they are called Crashes... bc an accident denotes that no one is at fault... So now instead of doing an Accident Report we do a Crash Report
