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???
I have ridden with Ride Smart and TTD. All I had said was that TTD seemed more organized and they deleted it? I had given one example.

I can assure you that noone from Ride Smart had the post deleted. Ride Smart welcomes feedback.

Ride Smart never claims to know it all. In fact, I'd be leery of "know it alls"

I say go with ridesmart for your first time they rent you the leathers & boots free. Since you havent done a trackday yet I would assume you dont have the proper gear yet. Like Hooli said MSRH is coming up in July 25 try it out plus its local.
