    Default My 1st Track Day

    I know this is not a big deal to most of you but I just signed up for my 1st track day
    April 13 and 14 at TWS. I know that ST Mark is going those days and maybe Randall (Texas Roadrunner). I'm really excited about it and can't wait. If you have any pointers for me, I'd like to hear them. Thanks to San Antonio TSBAers for encouraging me.

    Hey Pat, It's a big deal! You will never get those first time butterfly's again so love it and just have a blast get your equipment (bike)and gear squared away for the day. If its with LSTD you have a great set of TSBA'rs that are great track buddys and instructors and all around nice guys! Enjoy and he11 I may just be there to shake of the cobwebs off my track biktch.

    Drink plenty of water.......
    Bring some Tums........
    Get with someone who knows what they are talking about and get your tire pressure dialed in, and check it often.
    Gradually speed up throughout the day.

    Oh and don't clinch your *** cheeks to tight, just try and have some fun!

    Why just Saturday? You have just drove 3 hours and will have good tires for both days, just stay one more day. Plus just think how fast you will be on Sunday after learning the track on Saturday. I have not sign up yet but plan too. I am doing both days in level 2. SO YOU MUST GO BOTH DAYS

    Going to sign up in the next week or so, level 2 both days. Camping both nights, look for a mean looking R1 and a grill full of cooking hot dog. It will just be me, so stop by for a cold beer and a dog.
