I commend you for wanting to expand your skill set.
I see you've taken the Awesome Cycles MSF, so that's a good first step.
Next I'd recommend at least getting some more miles under your belt of real world seat time. Everyones skill level / learning speed is different so it's hard to give an exact number.
As far as skills, I'd recommend that you at least understand / practice things like; counter-steering, emergency front braking maneuvers and throttle control.
On a separate note about your concerns; LSTD is one of the safest track day providers around, and the incident you speak of is FAR from the norm.
Please realize though, that any time you throw a leg over a motorcycle you accept a certain amount of risk.
Good luck, and when you're ready to start doing track days, we're always here to help out. Feel free to stop by with any questions you may have.
