Trackday fees are a lot cheaper than tickets/insurance going up/bail/doctor bills !!! Slow it down on the streets...especially if you're not sure of your bike! You can take it to the drag strip pretty cheap if you have the need for speed and can't afford a track day. Good luck getting your bike right!

You don't need full coverage for a track day. If you want to continue running those speeds on BW8, please get full coverage because you will more than likely need it.

Still cheaper then ticket/bail/lawyer/insurance ect ect

Goto baytown on sundays. You likely wont even need full leathers. Just boats and leather jacket if your under 150 mph (i think) and its only 20 bux and you can run all day.
