^ Thanks! I love all the tracks! And I concur...as a noob to the track scene it doesn't really matter which track you hit. Worry about that after you've gotten used to it a bit. Some people love the straights and others love the technical corners. Cornerworking is a good idea and helps you better understand everything that is going on. It also makes you ready to get out there and ride!

Personally i liked msrh as a first. It has its technical sections, but it also has some straights where you can let your legs rest for a second or two. GSS is very tight, my legs were burning bad, but the both are fun as .

I've only ridden at MSRH. I like the facilities and location compared to GSS. GSS looks smoother while MSRH has a couple bumps here and there, but learning where the bumps are helps to learn the lines anyways. My vote for MSRH.

I rode MSRH as a first time on any track and it was great. You don;t have to worry about too much speed since you will be in a noob group and take your own pace. I have;nt done GSS yet but MSRH was a great 1st time track for me. Also they have gas at 5$ gal if you need it and shaded pits plus bathrooms. I think MSRH may be wider and definetly not as tight so it might be a bit easier to adapt your awareness to the speed without feeling like running out of track.

GSS has the smoothest surface in texas. Hands down. The smoothness and great grip that GSS has , insprires me to ride harder and be able to get more lean angle.

Yes, but maybe youd like some personal instruction OFF the track?

Normally I'd resist, but I've seen you in a bikini. You're pretty hot. Go ahead, talk dirty to me.

I think you are going to have to continue riding in the back of my truck. There is no shifter to keep you occupied up front.
