Great track, and a great group of people out there!
When is this track day? I don't have a suit or boots so I like what I hear so far. Never done a track day and would love to improve my skills.

I'm down for a AZ gathering if my busy schedule allows. As I said in the other thread, I'm in Laveen off 51st Ave. & Baseline Rd. Where would everyone meet and ride to?

I've never done a track day either and would love to do it but am intimidated if I were to go alone. As far as meeting I'm not sure where. I haven't lived here long and really don't know where to ride

Keep an eye on the Arroyo Seco Site. If you guys plan to come out you can pit with me and I can show you the ropes. Plenty(a shit ton) of suits, boots, and gloves to borrow for free for your trackday, tires, and other shit trackside. Also, it's a great environment and you can ask anyone to take you out and teach you a bit. You gotta start somewhere, and there's really nothing to be scared of. If one of you guys had a truck you could fit both bikes easy, or get a few guys and just rent a trailer and all split costs on gas. As far as the next trackday, I think it's Dec 1st weekend, during the banquet. But I won't make that. Need to do a few things to the bike before I take it back out. So I figure I'll wait till the new schedule for next year comes out and start planning/booking my trackdays and races then.

If you guys are ever interested, by all means shoot me a PM or a text. Just let me know. Between everyone out there, we'll get you squared away and out on the track! You could forget everything but your bike, and people would lend shit to get you out there... It's a blast on the track too! Sooooo much more so then the streets. Without a doubt.

Wow hey thank you!! That's why I hope to get a group of people together to ride with! I don't know many people down here and am hoping to know a few people who ride. Im currently going to MMI here in phoenix. Once we get this ride going I'm sure some of us would love to hit up the track with you. Feel like i already know some of you guys haha

Stick around... this forum is easily the best around. I've made some life long friends just by joining years ago.

It should, for a loooong while until you get used to it. Don't ever fool yourself, these machine's are dangerous, in every sense of the word.

Don't. Wear some shades in the mean time until you can afford a new visor. If you don't have any. Buy a cheap $5 pair in a gas station.
