Re: Got the gear, now what.
If you got boots, full suit (1 pc or 2pc), guantlet gloves, dot/snell approved helmet you are good to go. Got pucks for the pants? Also i would recomend getting a back protector.
You will need a rear stand in case you have to adjust your chain tension. Check the rules of the org, nesba requires you to remove your mirrors, tape off any lights and reflectors, remove passenger pegs unless used for a mount for your canister.
If you have less then 1000 miles on the oil, change it after. I change mine every 2 track days. Also make sure you got good tread on the tires, and your brakes work well and have plenty of pad. Make sure your throttle is smooth and returns to the closed position and doesn't stick.
Make sure the brake fluid is in good condition and clear
Go with an open mind to learn and have fun, there will be people quicker then you, and some slower. If you need help ask they are there to help, also ask other racers questions if you have any. Most of the time they are happy to help you out with your line or question about what gear they are in at what corner.
BE SMOOTH - with the gas and brakes, roll on and off the throttle don't just grab a fist full, same with the brakes be smooth on and off.
