Re: quad cities new rider

Semi-local would be Ames, Iowa. My parents live in Janesville, WI also.. I'm pretty much track-only anyways.. Get comfortable on that bike, pick some gear up over the winter and hit the track this spring!

Oh okay what track you run at? I have all my gear but some riding pant, and a racing suit I will definitely come up during the spring time for some track time on it. And thanks everyone. I am loving the bike so far

Re: quad cities new rider

There aren't too many that are "close", but the closest ones are Blackhawk Farms, Autobahn Country Club, Gateway, Iowa Speedway, Heartland Park, Putnam Park, Grattan, Road America, Brainerd, Mid America Motorplex, Hastings... and that's pretty much all I can think of in a ~10 hour radius of you/me.


For the track you'll need a helmet (obviously), full gauntlet gloves, suit (I recommend a one-piece), a back protector is highly recommended, and riding boots. Get comfortable on the bike so things like panic braking are a natural instinct. You don't wanna be mixing up the brake lever and the clutch lever on the track.
