Be my guest at any of our events, and see for yourself how we do things. You are welcome to sit in on my classroom sessions as well. We will be @ MSR Houston this Saturday and Sunday. Just be there by 8:30 if you want to catch the first class, and feel free to stay and have lunch with us, courtesy of TTD.

All of the schools have tons to offer. As stated above, just pick whoever best fits your schedule and needs.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. I will be more than happy to answer all of them.

They are all good and very similar honestly, they all run the same tracks. and you can learn alot at any of them. (i have not ridden with longhorn YET)...

correct me if im wrong...

Longhorn: only runs MSR-h, and mostly fast guys except on a newb day

LSTD: been around along time, caters to all, and especially racers.

TTD: caters to all, has a good novice class, and quite a few local events throughout a season

Ridesmart: caters to all. tends to have the most affordable prices. and an amazing classroom in their level one AND two classes.

I've only had a chance to do LMS, and I like them a lot. Very few riders on the track. Run 30 minute sessions. The "crew" really seems to give a on how you progress and that you do so within your means and comfort.

I'll be doing a TDD event soon.

I have ridden with a couple of org's...
I agree that you should find one to fit YOUR schedule.
If you are waiting for next season shoot me a pm and I will hook you up with a trackday.

Longhorn: never had a track day with them so no comments

LSTD: had one track day with them. very nice and friendly staff. i forgot my boots and they realy tried hard and finaly found me one! tnx alot jeff. they are a good choice if your looking for weekday trackdays (fridays for example).

TTD: i have had over 14 track days with.weekend track days for the most part. best instructor to student ratio; feels like you having a private day. free novice class and track side suspension setup. you are more than welcome to come to one of our events and see for yourself. free prade laps and noon.
ride smart: they have the lowest prices but as a result it can be a bit crowded. iv not had a track day with.

hope that helps.
ttd will be at MSR-H this sat and sun. join us for parade laps and see how we run things

I've ridden with both Buck's (LMS) and Tim's (TTD) orgs and haven't had a single bad thing to say about either one. You'll be happy regardless with some awesome instructors to help you out.

LMS does beginner specific dates, so look at their schedule, while TTD does a noob group at every event.

Oh, and both orgs have shown that they are more than willing to help you get your gear to the track if you need it.

I have a bigger than Swift!


All the org's are great. To be honest you best bet is to go ride with everyone of them and learn as much as possible.

The most important factor is that you learning and having a great time doing so in a safe environment.
