Hey Clayton do you know where I can get info for beginner track days at Arroyo Seco??
I'm just curious how many miles "seat time" you should have before your first track day...

Just so you know, there are a few sets of leathers for rent at the track if you let roger know your size he can tell if any will fit you.

I've got an extra set of leathers and boots but you don't need leathers to do a trackday. A good riding suit that covers up all skin is fine and the boots must cover the ankles (hiking boots are ok even).

The sooner one gets on the track the better. Less bad habits to break. All you really need to know is some simple track rules (flags and such) and be prepared to have the most fun you've ever had on a bike.

Not till Early Sept. Wishful thinking I'm guessing. Remember Dave, tone and delivery. :rolleyes :lao

BG, since this is what you wanted, congrats. I fucking hated San Antoinio, though. You get railroad tracks out of this?

Man, every part of the country calls things different. Here we call them "Chicken Strips" not "Railroad Tracks" Dave. Must be an east coast thing. :bitchslap :lao

lmao!

BTW, I'm painting. Just finished black (belly pan, parts of fender). Prepped and hung the fairing and tail, will mask the other part of the fender next.

Then basecoat, and 6-7 coats of candy, then top...
