Hi, I'm Gisi 600RR, and I'm an addict.

I went to my first track day this past Saturday at MSRH, and it was AWESOME!! Thank you LMS and all the instructors for putting this on and taking the time to impart your knowledge, especially Dr. Gonzo who spent a good portion of time giving me one-on-one tips!

I also thoroughly enjoyed meeting a number of the MHers out there. See you all next time!

PS - Here are a few pics of me taken by Robert (didn't catch his last name, but thanks a million!!)...

What does that matter? As long as it is in good running shape and is able to be safe to ride.

Most people would probably say not to get a nice bike out on the track without experience.

That's a great thing about the track. No one will look down on you for what you ride. They will actually respect you since you made the decision to come on out. It's a big step to go from street to the track. But once you do......your in bro!

But after a day on that thing at the track......you'll want something a little.......more?

lol, thats what I figured, you guys and gals always seem to be all about the track experience and not about showing off the bikes mainly. I agree that after I run the Katana around for a little bit I'll want something more...had it for a couple months now and already feel the need for something racier and I haven't even been to the track yet.

I've done the MSF but really only have a few weeks experience...is ERC recommended for track riding, or is it not exactly related? I've heard the track is a great way to become a better rider and I believe it, but is there a minimum amount of experience you should have before you get on the track?


Thanks for the encouragement guys, I been meaning to ask about this for a little while now.
