I don't know if you're coming Sat or Sun, but you should not have much problem, there are 3 garages, and it's not a CMRA race weekend, so you should be fine.

You're assuming the gates open at or before 06:30 too- usually, they don't open 'till 07:00, you should aim to be at the track at 06:30 though.

wish I had a motard / dual sport, it'll be next








so last night I put some fresh pads on the bike and fresh fulid [high temp]
tonight I'm going to change the oil [I'm only about 1,000 - 1,500 miles on this change but I figure it would be best to change it for the track day]
Tonight I'm also going to "prep" the bike for the day, tape the lights, remove the turn signals and LP etc...
I'll probably take inventory of every thing I plan on taking and make a run to Wally word for some sustinance

Oh and I'm doing Saturday with Ride Smart, but I'm also planning on doing an LSTD soon. I'm thinking I may take a day off and do the Monday in August @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)

Good idea I ALWAYS prep and load at least 2 days prior to an event. I HATE doing things the day before. Never works out well for me.

well I believe it was a write up done by you that prompted me to prep ahead of time. For some reason I always end up doing things at the last minute, so had I not intentionally prepped the bike early I'd most likely be out in the garage getting it done well past midnight.

Very cool, I'm glad something I said was helpful

Have fun, and I agree with Swift-E, you could help some other folks in your shoes by doing a blog or write-up about your day. A lot of people do that, and usually there is some good information that comes out of a well written piece.
