Yea! First post!



I love track days. But be forewarned... you WILL become addicted and it will consume you every waking thought.

Anyone know where the nearest track day is to North Carolina???



California's a far place to go for a bit of fun



Thanks, Ryan

Try Carolina Motorsports park in Kershaw SC, and VIR. Actually I think they just had a track day school at Carolina.

Just a thought on costs... Pacific Track Time doesn't charge an extra fee for their orientation school. And they give you a coupon for $100 off your next set of Pirelli tires each time you attend one of their track days.

Check out Sportbike Track Time at http://www.sportbiketracktime.com. They run at VIR as well as several other tracks on the East coast.

Does Airtech make race plastics for the R1150GS?



What kind of abomination would they look like?

I'm doing my very first track day exactly three weeks from today.....I am so pumped.....I am riding my '00 basically stock R1. I got my full Alpinestars suit a couple weeks ago and just tried it out on a ride last week. I managed to get the kneepucks scrubbed in at my local favorite riding spot, now I can see how much easier it makes it to ride. Judging your lean angle is much easier when you can use your knee to do it. I can't wait to bend into turn one at BIR at 170mph.....or 150 I mean......ah, well maybe 130......

Excellent article! I try to explain these things to my friends (riders and non-riders alike), but they just can't get their heads around it. "What's that? The track is safer than the road? But don't you go a lot faster?" Ugh.

PS. Can I put a link to this article on www.clubdesmo.com? We run track days at Buttonwillow and Laguna Seca, so we don't compete against Fasttrack.
