Any media/books to check out for riding technique on the track?

I know you can only truly get better and get a better feel by actually getting out there. I'd like something to read or even watch to jar some memory loose. It's been about 8-9 years since I've last ridden on a track and plan on getting back out there next year.

Check out Faster Safer.com. Those guys run the Yamaha Champions school. Their "free" vids are pretty informative. I actually used one of their vids to get some tips on a "new to me" track. Helped out alot.

Re: Any media/books to check out for riding technique on the track?

If none of that helps just go and sign up in the beginner's group (it's got nothing to do with beginning if you remember), and just have fun. Take your time out there and just let it flow. Don't push anything, like trying to drag knee. If you can great, but it is not important. Learn the line and have fun would be what I recommend, because if you don't have fun, what's the point. I try to watch vids about the track I am going to, but that is about it. I think too much information for that first day back is very distracting. Make a checklist of things to bring and pack, try to get a good night's sleep and drink a lot of water the day before.

ya I dont know about that. Ive brought friends to the track, that had tens of thousands of miles on street & dirt bikes. They were somewhat "overwhelmed" getting used to riding on a closed course plus having to learn track procedures & flags, etc. Let alone rider technique.

This isn't his first time on a track though.. Just the first time in a while.
