I'm sure this has been discussed before, but is a NEW rider ready for the track? I'd say no. Get the basics down and take some time to get comfortable with the bike. I'm glad I started trackdays when I did. , I dragged a knee on the street before I ever went to the track, and no it wasn't an over-exaggerated lean/poor body position. I was just killin it like that
People learn at different levels, some could be ready for the track from the get go, but probably not typical. Some people don't even get on the freeways till a few weeks of riding. See where I'm going with this. . .

I say at least 6 months +/- depending on how much he rides it, and where to.

I disagree, Gary. I think even a newer rider can learn a ton at the track and it's a helluva lot better than the street. Remember how slow the the level 1 folks ride.

Of course a NEWER rider can learn a ton, but I'm not too sure about a fresh rider. In this case, this is this guy's first bike. Maybe he has dirt experience? I don't know. That would help but he could also never have rode a bike before. If that's the case, I'd suggest getting the basics down before he even worries about the track.

Think about it, though. Although it's been a loooong time since I first began, I do somewhat remember how it took a little time to learn how everything came together without thinking it through. It's not so much an issue of getting used to riding, as much as getting used to the controls, and feeling out the bike as well as your surroundings, and riding in groups. Get that out of the way, and he can now focus on technique, body position, and more importantly riding in close quarters with riders who will be much faster than him. It's all new to him, and if he's learning about the bike basics on the track, I think it could be more of a danger, not only to himself, but to other track riders as well. He could easily get off his line, simply because he's paying too much attention to his controls, etc.

Just a few months to get used to the bike and riding in general.

Thanks Rob, that's basically what I was trying to get at. Like said, I'm glad I started trackdays when I did. I was already comfortable riding and could focus on the finer things and soak everything up like a sponge

I don't know why y'all are so preoccupied with me. One guy puts my name in a list for a ride without my permission and then I'm not even the country in the first place. Plus I ride solo anyway. I guess you can tell a rider by how many scars he has.
Anyway, I'm riding waves right now. Need to sleep off this hangover and get ready for later tonight. Like my tan??

Then dealing with post, you already know my view. You can buy whatever you want.

Thanks again guys, I know my limits and yes its my first street bike. Ive rode dirt bikes several times before. my cousin had me on the freeway with in 2hours of owning it. If I'm uncomfortable doing it i wont do it till I'm ready. I'm not planning to do any stunts. Just a weekend rider type bike, or ride when weather is bad ... Like today

and it begins.......

90% of motorcycle DEATHS are people self taught or taught by family or friends

MSF you'll spend really about 1 hr just learning clutch and starting/stopping

here you are on frwys after 2 hrs......

you don't know your limits let alone the bikes limits.

good luck.

MSF classes are avail all over every weekend and some during the week, there really is no good excuse not to have already taken it.

You came up with 90% on your own? Im glad you know me so well to tell me that i don't know my limits

If i wasn't comfortable with being on the freeway there are exits...

Well my excuse for the "MSF" class is I'm going to wait to get paid before i go. Thanks for the concern but i think ill live till i get a pay check RacerX.
