Don't respond to the track-day-whore!

Someone might be able to ride great on a track, and get good at dragging knees, but there's no cars trying to run you off the road and kill you there.

Just answer the damn question. It's obviously a no, so I guess you really don't need to answer anways.

Over the last 3 years I've done roughly 25 track days. With ALOT more to come! :twofinger Once you ride track you'll keep coming back! :D

Just because he's a track-day-whore doesn't mean I haven't done one.

I think a topic was posted like this on another forum and I gave a similar reply. I advise against doing trackdays. Mainly because once you do one you experiance a whole new level of riding. Everything you thought you couldn't do on your bike you discover you can, and once you get back on the streets it sucks because to get the same level of excitment and exhiliration you get on the track you would have to go at suicidal speeds. The sweeper you used to take a 70 ish thing you're hauling ass on the fun road in the middle of nowhere you now have no problem attacking at 100+ and draggin your knee in the process feeling like you still could go faster. It costs money and takes time but goddamn its worth every single penny and I cannot wait to go again,

No I really should since Beaver Run is only 1/2 mile from my house but never have the time when they are doing track days. Maybe next year the season is almost done here for the year. I am going to be lost again.

SHUTUP! SHUTUP! SHUTUP! Ok, very sorry, but my answer's a "no" since I've yet to get some leathers, but something deep inside me knows you're right. Please excuse my jealousy induced outburst. :a2 :lol

Nope...never been to one..... :D :D



As everyone said....once you go...there addictive. Each day trying to improve your skills...hit that corner a little faster, brake a little later...get on the throttle a little earlier.

That's exactly the point. You can totally focus on improving your riding skills without worrying about most of the stuff that can get you killed on the road.

I've done two - a novice day with instruction (highly recommend it) plus one open day. Learned more during the novice day than the preceeding 2 years of riding.
