The op is asking about all the track day folks and needs a open honest opinion correct?
there is a big difference bewteen giving an opinion and bashing/starting drama.

IMO, just tell people who you like and let it go.

what makes your opinion from mine "honest". I honestly had very poor opinions about Ride Smart and my experience with them back in 07 or 08. Now my tune has changed and I enjoy their org. I also enjoy TTD and LSTD.... are they different? to a degree. Do you get the same thing from them? Yes, a safe place to ride your bike with no obstructions, etc. Will it vary a little from org to org? Yes. But when you have 3 or 4 PAYING organizations (sponsors) under one roof (MH) you have to keep it somewhat civil.

Why is this so hard to understand?

why do you have to make so much sense? did you contemplate that while building a fence?

no, the only thing I contemplate or think about when building fences is getting done and into the A/C.

2006 crf50

this is kind of why I would never do a track day...


just reading through 8 pages of arguing for someone that was hoping to get some insite on trying something new...

"go to the one that fits your schedule"..... understandable, I doubt Joe or anyone else would pick the one he couldn't go to because of his schedule... so that made no productivity in the matter...



it all appears to "cliquish" to me...

I'll just stick to popping wheelies in a parking lot with a lot of other riders who don't care what "stunt team" is at the parking lot with them... and riding casually on the streets...


i couldn't justify the money spent on a trackday just so that a couple months later I could join into the argument as to which one is "better" or not....



pretty sad in my oppinion

^^^ that is no reason to not do a track day. Everyone has their opinions on which is best just like the whole Honda, Suki and Kawi debate.
