If you visit the sponsor section (TTD, LSTD, Ride Smart are all sponsors on MH) and use the search feature you will be able to make an educated decision.

Just remember that your going to learn more in 1 day of instruction and track riding than you will in 6 years of riding. Keep the ego at home and focus on developing some ridding skills in a controlled environment. BTW TD's are very very very addicting.

Look under each section to dates they are doing trackdays, then visit each one and see how things are ran. That way you can get your own view and pick whichever you feel is right for what you are looking for. I will be more than happy to answer any questions you haev as far as TTD goes and there are guys from the other orgs that will do the same for how they are ran.

I know we (TTD) will be at MSRH this weekend and Ride Smart there the following weekend and LSTD will be at TWS (Texas World Speedway) soon i believe.

You took the dealers advice on the bike, why not the trackday provider? I think I met you last weekend. Money doesn't seem to be the issue. There really is no best provider. They all have something different to offer. Ride with each of them and then decide which one is "best for you".

Actually...I had a student last year who took that class say he preferred the instruction and format of the class he took here. + the cost was much much much lower. Now if I could only remember if I what org I was with at the time

As mentioned try them all and write a review of the strengths and weakness of each program.
