Question about first track day

I will be doing my first track day this saturday at bhf. I will be doing the intro class so it's only for two sessions. The nesba manual states that i don't have to tape my front lights, but i have to unplug the brake lights. Should i bring tape and take the front anyways? ALso, should i put my number on the bike? This all new to me, so any help will be appreciated. Also, i will be riding my bike to the track and back, so i can only take enough things that will fit in my backpack.

It never hurts to be extra ready. You shouldn't need a number though. Bring water, or cash to buy it. If you are going to tape your headlight you should unplug the light, it's easier to get the tape off that way.

The taping is for safety purposes...broken glass is a bad thing on a track. Nesba doesn't require it for Intro but it is a good idea. If you tape the headlights, you'll want to unplug them to avoid melting the tape. You may as well tape the signals as well. The reason they reqire an unplugged taillight is to remove the distraction as you are following.

I hope you enjoy your first day with Nesba; they are a great group to ride with.

All you need is water. If you are riding there, go early. Then let your tires cool down and ask around for tire pressure. I would assume you DONT have Diablo coasar, so 30 front and 30 rear is what most people will say.

Good luck and have fun. I would guess you might end up doing the whole day.

Damn I wanna ride again!!!!!!!!!!
