thoughts on GSS

What are y'all's thoughts on GSS?
I'm trying to get in another track day or two before the end of the year, and they way our schedule is, this will have to be one of them?

So for a n00b who has only done two track days what do you guys think?

It's either this or I've been invited on a trip to ride the 3 sisters with a bunch of cruiser guys from our church.

You should do a trackday on the same track you've been on.

I think you'll be perfectly fine on GSS. It's a great track with flowing lines. It's noob friendly

GSS is easy and isnt fast at all. it will definately be better than the alternative.

i will be at GSS doin the motard thing on the 13th. i cant make it this weekend. i had to go in today to get another round of ESI's in my L5-S1 area. that is why i had to give BC my spot at Barber this weekend. at the moment i cant even put my leathers on, let alone ride. but once that kicks in, ill be ready to go haul sum azz. the last weekend at TWS (Texas World Speedway) u were talkin about... is that the LSTD event ? if so, i should be there.
