Ya know...if any of of them was just THAT much fkn better than the other, well...then the others would be out of business.

Just pick one that fits your schedule and do it.

We know you aint going to cresson or ECR for your first day, cuz you live in houston. So pick a TWS (Texas World Speedway) date or an MSRH date and go.

Nothing like a race weekend though, come to Cresson and see

Our "noob" group is where the beginners go and most get instruction if they want it. It's not fast pace, it's "your" pace in that group.

There are also some events coming up at GSS as well. Not too bad of a first track to hit up, depending on what bike you are on. Not a liter bike track.
+1 for v-twins, tards and 600's at GSS

Really...
Man, its all good. no need to get pissy. It is the same thing over and over. People ask, and people speak out.
In the end they will decide what works best for their schedule...whether it be driving to MSRC, OHR, TWS (Texas World Speedway), GSS, H2H, ECR or MSRH.
As long as they find what they are looking for in all areas of their track experience... they win. And that is the only thing that should be important

I have been around multiple track days with all the other organizations.......Sunday was my first experience with LSTD and it was the fastest I have seen. Not knocking any other groups AT ALL. I may have just caught LSTD on a crazy day. All I know is that expert class was a fcukin blurr

Race weekends are fast, I never recommend a race weekend for someones very first track day.
The beginner group on a normal track day coupled with our beginner school is the best bet for a track noobie getting their first hit off the almighty track pipe.

Sunday's pace was pretty good for the A group, but yeah, the race weekends are much faster.

Like I said though, we have 3 groups, the C group is our "noob" group, and when they get instruction the pace is "their" pace, our instructors work with them at their pace and skill level, by the end of the day that pace is usually perty dern good I know that was the case Sunday, all of our C group instructors were commenting on how well their students were doing.

not sure either but somehow, surely these threads always tend to turn into a whining match with everyones stupid azz comments.

how do you know who the best is without having ridden with them all?

so you (not pointing fingers) base your assessment on your experience with the one and only org. that you've ridden with. it's just plain stupid in my opinion.

people tend to ride with their friends and that's the way it works and lasts, so why do some of you try to bullshit everyone else that knows no better???

it's all in the personal experience, the knowledge gained and the new friendships that are created. i always meet new people.

the most interesting people are the ones you never attempt to talk to
