We Opt a lot of level 2 riders out if they want as long as they have been to many of our TD's, and we have seen there skill sets. So like you said, if you've been riding awhile and have been to ride smart events, or you can ask one of the TD instructors in level 2 to follow you and we can Opt you out if we feel your skills are upto par and safe for other riders to be around.

Have you ever gone out and forgot your ear plugs, not sure of your fuel level or you didn't check your tire pressure ? I hate to be in a hurry!

Riders meeting, 1st classroom, check the bike and my gear, be safe and have fun. Sounds good to me.

Yup.

I did 35 track days with RideSmart before I started getting the opt-out sticker, and the only reason I started doing that is just so I don't have to be in a hurry in between sessions (I talked exclusively about those in-between session rituals at the November BTT). I try to make the most out of that slot of time so I can work on my plans for the day, write down my notes, compare notes with my buddies, etc.

With that said, I'm thinking of ways where I can still work with the instructors to help me accomplish my goals.
