Ride for FREE it's on STT (Ride Right program)

CLSB'ers,

Welcome to STT's Ride Right Free track day program.


Starting this month STT will offer ONE free track day to any person who has NEVER ridden on the track before. We'll even give you a set of rental leathers to use the the day too for free!

There are a few restrictions like; SPACE IS LIMITED (2 riders per day) and you must ride in the novice group. It is a raffle, we pick the winner at random, and all organizational rules and STT policies apply.

also, as a disclaimer, I may not have the suit size you need so don't be mad if your 6'10 and weigh 105 pds or 5'2 and weigh 450...yell at the manufacturers I don't design suits, but I carry a full line from 38-52 (currently Joe rocket).

Some events are not permitted due to venue agreements (like midweek stuff at ACC)

To request a free track date go to the STT (forum/community) and there will be a thread in the Midwest section for all the events. Simply post a reply with the date you wish to attend and I will add your name (if your the first two to request that date).

The thread topic will be, for example: First ride free it's on STT! ACC Aug 8/9
ACC Aug 8
McLovin
Jack Mehoff

ACC Aug 9th
xxxxx
xxxxx

ETC..

All thread topics will be: First ride FREE it's on STT and then the event date. You'll need to check back to see the posted dates.

Finally, this is on the honor system and if you've done a track day before don't be the that signs up and ruins it for everyone else because I will release your data so everyone knows it was you...that's another disclaimer.

If you have questions you can PM or email me.

Thank you and I'll see YOU, for free, at the track!

thanks for the props guys. To be honest this came about because of a bike crash I dealt with recently. I am tired of seeing guys get hurt on the street. Sadly, we are our own worst enemy on occasion.

Richard, the new owner, is a good guy for letting me run with this idea. Hopefully we'll save a few lives along the way.

I have the perfect person to recommend this to.. Awesome of you to do this Nick! He has his own leathers and bike is pretty ready (rearsets, tires, clipons etc) but he's never been on the track.
