The only regret you may have is that you didn't do it sooner. You will become a better rider, with a better feel for the limits of your bike and the enhanced moral high ground of calling people, who ride fast on the streets, "Squids".
What could be better?

I've never done an LSTD event, but cornerworked for them yesterday. They run it beautifully, and I'll more than likely stick with them for any and all future TDs I do.

I have nothing but positives to say about the three on here(sorry Elite I hadn't been able to make it yet.)

Top notch peeps in every group, you only know by going which ones cater more to what you want to get out of the trackdays; and by that it is purely a personal thing.

GL and you'll enjoy it!!!



(oh and blackflags are givin out to those whom wheelie on the track... its not a reward )

Just do one. Considering it's your first day, I dont think you'll learn any more at one than the other.

If you get hooked, maybe in the future you will gravitate to one that suits you and what you like in an org best.

I know, for sure, that wherever you go....you will enjoy it.

Iíve ridden with allíem and they all suck .

Develop your skills by darting in and out of traffic about 50 mph faster than the avg cars speed Then take on some twisties and remember that when your bike leans one way you need to lean to the other to keep it from falling over.
After you get these skills down you no longer need to wear a helmet or any other gear.









Ok, itís all a lie. Except that Iíve ridden with them all. Theyíre all great!
