The best part of it bro, is that you can learn as much in one day on a race track as you can in one season of riding.

Yea that is a good point mate, and im always willing to learn something new. It was the fact it didnt seem like you actually got much riding that was putting me off, didnt really seem worth it but as that seems to be the norm im definitely gona give it a go...

Every track day I've ever been to has given me at least 7 15-minute sessions in a day.

I learned more in my first track day than in the 3 years of street riding before it.

When I used to be able to afford tires for full days and was a real go getter about picking up my pace, I would do 100+ miles every track day.

I learned quickly how slow I was!!! I learned more in a half day at the track than 5000 miles of street riding when I started!
