yeahhhh :toocool:I think a track day would do you nothing but good no matter your experience. I was nervous going to my first track day thinking i would look like a total noob but when i got there went around a few times, man i tell ya it was friggin amazing what you can do on those bikes. It also made me comfortable on the street knowing what the bike can do. I'm by no means the best but its a must for any sportbike owner
we'll see who's gonna be behind :jumpMy first one is coming up as well, i am on my 3rd season and feel really well on street and hanging off, but at the same time I dont want to be holding people up on the track making me nervous. I assume the the field will open up between riders of the beginner class so everybody has room???
I learned more from my first track day than I did in my entire first year of riding.Thanks for the replies everyone. I have a little over 5000 miles in and I really want to do a track day but I'm debating on trying it because I know my riding skills need alot of improvement.
Don't even worry about the people behind you...tape over your speedo and forget about everything except whats in front of you. Don't watch what the guy in front is doing though as he might not know what he's doing lol. It's up to the person behind you to get around YOU not for you to be worried about him getting around you.My first one is coming up as well, i am on my 3rd season and feel really well on street and hanging off, but at the same time I dont want to be holding people up on the track making me nervous.

I'm one of the instructors for Team Promotion and I sometimes teach ART Basic (advanced rider training basic). There is a pretty wide range of abilities in the basic class. I would say you want to have a decent idea of how to ride a motorcycle on the street. You wouldn't want to come out of your MSF Basic class, get your license and hit the track but you also don't need 100K miles logged either. I would say as long as you are comfortable on your motorcycle and feel pretty comfortable turning the bike where you have some left over attention to learn technique, go for it.I was wondering how much riding experince most people have before trying their first track day. How advanced is the Beginners class?
