how long have you track riders been riding?

Just like the title says, I'm curious how long all you guys who ride on the track have been riding. Not just on the track but all together. And how long did it take you to get to the track after starting to ride

I rode for 40 years before the track. Learned more the 1st day at the track than in the previous 40.

Re: how long have you track riders been riding?

Been riding since somewhere around September 2002 - so ... fcuk, 13 years now. Been riding track around 5 years? Wish I had the good sense to get to the track much sooner, but then again, I'd probably be bankrupt if I got the addiction in my early 20s.

Re: how long have you track riders been riding?

I think I rode on the street for a year or two, and when I started riding like a squid and pushing the limits, I hit the track.

Have never looked back and have since sold my street bike and now only ride track.

Re: how long have you track riders been riding?

I rode street only for 6 years, then street and occasional track days for 6 years, and pretty much track only for the past 3 years.

Was just curious because I just started riding, but I'm scared to test the limits because I don't know what the bike is capable of lol. I'm still trying to get used to how the bike handles
