now, that is some sound advice. I am with RideSmart, and we say this often, try them and see which one suits your needs best. Each can spin this whichever way they want, but there is no substitute for experience. So try some of them and see what you take out of it.

Good luck.

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.
Longhorn - Does have "Race Pace" days, which is why i love them. you dont even get that out of some Advanced sessions with other orgs.

LSTD - Never done, but heard good things about.

TTD - great for noobs and just riding with the bros

Ridesmart - I'll let you know on Nov 2 (the day after the Nov 1 track day.)



I will always pick Longhorn first just because of the pace and the massive amount of experience that is out there. I hate getting stuck behind people, and I hate not having anyone that can keep up with me to help me learn. I never have those problems at Longhorn. And MSRH is Close and I LOVE that track.

and this reminds me. they will all also help you pick your bike up from the grass

Buck @ Longhorn even let me ride his bike back to the pits when i highsided mine.

just another reason why i love Buck and the LMS.


and someone mentioned something about LMS being the most comical, to that.

Ummm, you're talented, but the above statement is a bit arrogant, don't you think? Perhaps you need a race license?

They are all really good groups, I have done just about every organization except for Texas track days but have heard nothing but great things about them, I just look for the events that fit around my schedule at work, And since I have Sun,Mon,Tues off anyone of them will usually work for me. Just depends on how far I want to drive. You will learn allot at all of them.
