New to the scene

Hey, my name is Don. I am new to Motohouston but have about 4 years of riding experience. I am looking forward to my first track day experience which should happen in about a month. Maybe I'll see some of you guys out there.

Welcome! Track is addicting, fair warning.

I'd recommend going up for a day you're not riding to get a feel for it. Even if its not the same track, you get an idea of how it all works so when you do your track day you're not awestruck. Search the threads in Racer's Lounge for first track days to get an idea of what all to bring etc.

TWS (Texas World Speedway) in college station is my fav... and the 'wow' factor for peeps I take for the first time is high lol.

Which organization?

Good luck!!!!

I have a Pirelli dual compound tire in the back and the stock dunlop tire in the front, am I going to need new tires for the track, or can a slap another dual compound tire on the front to match the back and be done with it?

There are a few different trackday orgs that rent out different tracks on different dates and the prices vary.
As far as I know the list goes as Ridesmart Motorcycle School, Lone Star TrackDays, Elite Trackdays, and Texas Trackdays. All of which are sponsors on this site.

Feel free to check out some of Ridesmart's youtube videos, they have some pretty cool stuff up and you will learn a thing or two
