First ever track day... Tuesday!!!

YIKES! I booked this in March for my boyfriend's birthday and it's finally upon us...

Me, and 6 other screaming yokels barreling down the straights of Road America... The bf was trying to show me all these clips from Jason Pridmore's school and what not, but I didn't want any part of it.. That just scares me all the more!

My bike is taped up awaiting the trailer that will take her and her fiesty 10 companion to the shores of financial doom...

Wish me luck fellows, the bug has bitten and I'm about to go meet the bull that's all horns...

If you ain't first, your last!

You will reach finacial doom right after the first track experience. Me and a buddy have already signed up to do Keith Code's superbike school in August at Barber. Just take your time and remember....just because others are hauling ass by you, you DON'T have to catch them. Ride within your limits and it will be great!!! Are you going w/ an organization like NESBA or Sportbike Track Time? Bring tons of water and don't forget the Under Armour.

We're all getting older but not growing up.....

Have fun, that's what it's all about. There's only one requirement for the day, not getting a knee down, turning fast laps, beating a mate, etc. Those are all nice to do. The requirement is to ride within yourself and try not to crash...

If you've been reading books on techniques and stuff, really try to keep focussing on the ideas you want to learn. It's often really easy to get carried away and race all day, without actually learning or practicing anything...

As Undrlord said, drink a lot of water. It's easy to get carried away in the day and not eat or drink enough...

The financial doom won't come from breaking bikes or busting glass. It is more likely to come from paying for more track days. Don't let your ego get you into any situation over your head and you will be fine.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
