I have an 8 passenger SUV and 2 trailers. This could be an affordable trip with a few of us pitching in on gas. Sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to get experience on the R6.

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.
We need to keep in touch as this sounds great since I don't have track gear. Good way to learn track etiquette as well.

Check out his vendor feedback. I can also send you a PM he sent me with all of the stuff it does for your bike. By far one of the best mods you can do for your bike.

Rough rough idea. Let me know what you guys think
Okay, this thread has moved really fast on me and I haven't had time to chime in.

I say we meet up early, have breakfast and get to know the group. Find out everyone's skill level and talk a game plan for our ride so we can make it a safe one for all involved, then get on the road. I would like to do a longer ride to Wickenburg or Payson by taking the 303 or something. Less traffic, less cops and some twisties on the way!

I'd rather not do the caravan to the mall and walk around. I guess I'm too old for that. If that's what you guys want to do then I'd be happy to ride out with you guys then break off and go my separate way. I don't ride everyday, so I want to be on my bike...

Only reason I didnt hit Arroyo this month is I couldnt get forum access to find a ride there. Don't really feel like driving that far solo. Its boring as shit.

Re: Phoenix, AZ Riders?

Hi y'all, thought I'd chime in. I've racing at arroyo for two seasons now and it's without a doubt the best place to start on the track. There is also AMP in the west valley but I wouldn't do that as my first track day as I don't think they have instructors. The new racers school at arroyo is the way to go, but the next one is not until March. I'm more then happy to help organize a trip out to that if you are interested.

A suggestion for your ride you are planning? Maybe look in to a SoMo ride or up to Prescott or TTF. Google southwest rides for a good meetup group that plans a lot of rides.

PS I have a extra set of track gear I can loan to a trust worthy person who is my same size

Thanks for the chime in!

Sucks its not until March. Im hitting AMP as my first on 9 Dec. Xcel trackday. They have instructors and free leathers. Not a bad price either. I wish you were my size. but at 6'6 and 34" waist I am never anyones size!

Im def up for a ACR trip next year though. Hope to hit some Cali spots too.

Re: Phoenix, AZ Riders?

Ok Do you guys just wanna ride??
Then I came up with is while day-dreamin at work (The norm) anyways I have a visual so you could see how far and long it'll be of just riding.

Step 1: Meet up at wastegate (I think everyone agrees on that right?).
1a. Introductions, ex. name, bike you ride, Something your proud of about the bike.
1b. The riders experience is a great idea, we'll keep it.
1c. The plan
Step 2: Skip eating, simple we'll eat later.
Step 3: If your low on fuel then make it known, we'll ride to a gas station (This isnt the last time we'll stop at a gas station)
Step 4: Take the loop 101 south and loop to the I-10
Step 5: Get on the I-17 from there the outlets at Anthem (We'll stop at that gas station, for fuel, piss break, stretch, ect.) after a few minutes...
Step 6: Ride back into phoenix...but get on the 101 asap
Step 7: Get off at bell road then eat a Hooters.....
Step 8: Separate????

Let me know what you guys think about this idea

Idk mang... Check the site... Couple more tweaks and my bike will be (my) perfect track machine! Def ready to roll into next season at Arroyo! I'll be at as many trackdays and race weekends as I can possibly manage!

And as I said, you'z guys are welcome to pit with me and all. I usually rent power, play some music in the pits, and have a good time. Going to start bringing my tailgaitin grill and such next season too. Do it up on track weekends grillin out and drankin! We always have a good time out there!

I figured you were the guy running that Daytona out at Arroyo... Just saw your other thread. Don't think I've actually met you in person though. Have I... I've got the orange/black tracked out R6... Got some Woodcraft rearsets coming off it too for sale if you're interested for your bike. I loved them! Just need adjustable rearsets with my short ass...

I joined Xcel, never had a chance to make it out with them this season. I definitely plan to next year though. Love the environment at Arroyo though, and its just about an hour away. So it's super close to head out to a track weekend. I will venture out to other tracks next year though!
