2014 Track days

Postby Insulinboy » Tue Sep 03, 2013 6:19 pm

I will be looking to potentially do 2 track days next year, maybe more but right now I know for sure two.

Currently I'm planning on doing a Free Intro day at Road Atlanta just to get the two sessions in and have the first be a get a feel for it thing and go home after my two sessions (and to have someone there to help me prep and safty wire the bike so that the next time I'm there and pay for it I know how things are supposed to be and don't end up going home without riding or my money back cause I missed something) so I'm not so overly anxious that I end up wrecking and then a full day at Barber. I won't be alone, I will be with Gene (who bought my 600R when I got rid of it and I opened the R/C shop with) who bought a CBR929RR the other day (and claims it to be much more comfortable than the cat or my hawk :dunno The schedules for next year aren't up yet but it would be nice if at least at Barber I wasn't completely alone :lol

I may also try to get Gene and Tina to join me at the Gap meet next year as long as its Kosher.. we are after all on H*ndas :lol

Seriously consider jennings! It's very affordable comparably (140 for the day), you don't need to safety wire, and it is an absolute blast.

But its also a little farther than I'd like to travel for a track day. I live in north west ga

You don't have to safety wire at Atlanta or barber either for begginer class but I want to anyway. I've had bolts come loose on my rc cars and fried expensive engines because of it, I don't want to dump all the oil in my bike because I was too lazy to safety wire and blow up an engine. Also to do Jennings I'd have to get a hotel room for Friday and Saturday night which would negate the cheap and kill 2 days instead of 1

No way man, camp like the rest of us. They let you stay out there, that's half the fun. Everybody stays up and swaps stories.

If you're a wimp like me they let you sleep in the classroom even lol.
