noob day at msrh ftw! when i went it was 180for the track all day. a little over 100$ to rent leathers from patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited which includes the jumpsuit, boots, and gloves. and the team at MSRH is awesome oh and then you have gas for the track and food and drink cause you dont want to get dehydrated. i also suggest wearing underarmor under your leathers so they come off alot easier!

This is the earliest "noob" type day, this is a new track to most all of us so it should be fun. As steve said, contact M-U for your leathers, come on out and have a great time. There will be 3 different groups running for 3 different skill levels, unlike other T/D's, we'll have a group specifically for your skill level without any problems at all.

not sure but you can pose the question in the LMS section, it may get answered quicker.

And don't forget to change your rear sproctket from a 72 to something like 45, otherwise you'll be doing a lot of whoolie and still going under 100MPH

you can expect to spend anywhere from $200-$300 each trackday

unless you do the cornerworking for credit thing.

no, LMS doesn't offer that option.

i should've clarified it....

you can cornerwork through LSTD or Ride Smart.....maybe texas trackdays for trackday credit. which is a great option for the trackdayer on a budget.

Matt,
Stunters usually make a good transition to the track; all those skills involving throttle and brake control directly transfer over.

Here's a link to a guide to help as well:

Thanks for all the good info guys


Really looking forward to finally trying it...And will probably just end up buying a track bike, instead of trying to use my stunt bikes. So if anyone knows of a good track bike for sale, send me a pm.

And thanks for the link Patrick, good stuff.


Hopefully I can make the March trackday, might be out here in Cali until next month, but will sign up when I know for sure.
