I was just curious if anyone here actually takes there bike to the track? I've always wanted to learn how to ride/race but have no idea how to get started or anything.
MSR is a great track. I'm not into the bikes but I've been out there with a few cars!First, you have the wrong crowd to ask this question as 99% of the people on this forum don't understand that there are tracks with turns.
I am track instructor, but I only instruct in cars. Here's who you should go to for bikes as there are a lot of track days at both MSR and ECR coming up. Start with contacting one of the clubs and signing up for an event:
All have novice programs and work up from there. You will need a good set of safety equipment before you start: full leathers with pads, boots, gloves and a Snell 2005-up rated hard hat. The one I would recommend the most is to go to Ty Howard:
Ty Howard is a local pro and the lead Motorcycle Instructor at ECR.
Yeah most of our riding consists of hanging out at gas stations and going fast in a straight lineThanks car guy! I had heard of ride smart before and had looked at their website but the problem I have is, I want to do track days on my bike but if I wrecked id have no way of getting it home, so I was hoping someone else here did msr or ecr so I could share their trailer lol, majck123 I live nowhere near a road course I think the closest ones like two hours away! And I know its even further for you in odessa, btw don't you get bored riding out there? I drive through odessa 2-3 times a week and I wanna fall asleep everytime!
