April 19-20 .... HELP!

I'm going to be at Road America for the track day thanks to the NESBA raffle but truth be told, I'm forking terrified. The closest to a track day I've come thus far is Leask Lane in Wheaton at 65 mph. I think I can handle the 6 inch numbering stickers, but I'm totally lost on all the other important qualifying stuff and want some advice. I've never ridden competitively, nor have I ever tried to prep my bike for anything like this. What do I need to do in order to pass tech and what should I do to not look like a total jackass on the track?

As a corrolary, who else from CLSB is going to be at Road America on the 20th? I'm hoping there's going to be some old pros there. And if possible, is there any chance I could get my bike trailered up there (yes, I would pay)? Help for a track newbie would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all!

Please help a newbie!!!

Brian

First you need to make sure your bike will get bu inspection . There is an excellent track day write up on this forum some where. You will have to wire some bolts and nuts and things of that sort. Most track bikes have dedicated skins, or body panels. If you dont there are other things you can do to compensate like tape you lights up etc etc
It take about 3 hours to get your bike ready. Im sure if you ask some of the vets here really nicely they will hook you up in the pits on track day

Second, make sure you have gear. You need full boots, and leathers.. again if you dont have them, ask around, many have second sets and are more then willing to let you borrow.

Third just make sure you communicate with the orginizers that this is your first time so they can plan accordingly for you

Last get ready for the most fun you can have legally!!

Maybe better bow out until you get a little more time to gather info and/or get some experience? As a possible alternative, Nesba offers free Intro sessions, which are the first two sessions of the day with the beginner group at any event. No bike prep necessary, and it would give you a little more insight as to all that is involved before your first full day.

Otherwise, it would at least be good to go with someone that is also going to participate in the event. Maybe ask who else is going and share a trailer up there. That way you can have someone with that knows the ins and outs, and can help you along if needed.

Once you get there, the event organizers, and control riders are always willing to offer up help and advice. Do not hesitate to ask other track goers for help if necessary, I have met nothing but great people at the track, and always willing to lend a hand!

Good luck

Track days are fun! If you have no experience, just go to the beginners group, and they teach you everything. As for your bike setup, You don't have to safety wire anything if your going to be in the beginners class. All you have to do is unplug all your lights, tape up the lights with masking tape, tape up your speedo (just my preference, I don't want to be spooked by how fast I'm going) and add your numbers. Also check these sites out :

The bike is pretty set up for this, at least I think it is. I have a Snell helmet, armored jacket (leather), leather pants and gloves, the only thing I see needing are pucks for my pants and boots (Size 12 for anyone looking to part with an old pair, I will pay well). From the NESBA manual, all I can ascertain that I need for a fully prepped bike is taped off lights and a number tag for the rear, aside from that I think I'm good to go, but let me know if I'm mistaken.

Ordinarily, I would run the intro route, but since this one is covered, why not go into it prepared and try a full day. Worst case scenario, I cut after a few sessions and still gain some class B experience.

Yup, just go with the B. My first time was the B, and it was great! The pace is pretty good, and I see that you have been riding for awhile, so you shouldn't be worried. Also, I'm not sure, but I think your jacket and pants have to zip together. You might want to check that. I would lend you my boots, but I'm asian, so I have some small feet. Anyways, have fun!

Are you going to be up there Brian? I'm curious about the back protector, I haven't bought one, but I'm thinking one would be a good buy. If you want to get rid of those boots, or if those pucks are velcro, send me a PM.

As youngkow mentioned, I have been riding for a while, just not at the track, nor stunting, so I have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing, just maybe not what people are doing at the track... thus my predictament.

If anyone has any anecdotes about racing, please indulge here...

dont freak out man.


trust me, you can go as SLOW as you want. you won a free day on a track that they race AMA super bikes. who many times can people say that.

tape off your lights pull some fuses, and gear up. you will be in B group when you do your free day.


just listen and ask for tons of help from the control riders.
take your time focus on looking where your going, and keep looking where your going and not as the ground.

be smooth on the gas at all times, only use the front break in a smooth squeezing motion to slow yourself down. slow before the turn , look, lean and countersteer, slowly and smoothly roll on the gas, and repeat for every turn.

leave plenty of space from the guy infront of you, and no matter what dont focus on anyone infront of you, you will go where you eyes go.

they will teach you some small stuff in the class, from there its up to you to ask for help.

trust me, you will have fun EVEN if you crash, there is no better place to learn and learn your limts and later expand them ON THE TRACK. not on the street!


you will be fine, just get plenty of sleep, and make sure your bike is set to go before you get there.


nesba is a great crowd to find friends in.

Don't worry about the track. From what you wrote, I think you have a misconception about what a traack day is. It is not racing. In the beginners class, there is no passing. Basically it's like riding on nice curvy roads, except with no cars, trees, or any other things to possibly F you up. Basically there are controll riders who help you with your riding skills, and you just apply what you learn, and just go faster as the day progresses. Guarantee you will have a blast! There is no pressure to go balls out, so keep it at your pace and have fun. Trust me, I was thinking the same thing you were. Also take a cooler full of water or gatorade, and some snacks, a tent thing, some folding chairs, and maybe a 5 gallon tank of gas. You will be addicted!!!

SmartDrug,

I'll be up at R/A on the 20th. I'm only riding on the 19th and the 21st, so I'll be around to help you out if you need it. I'll be driving a 2002 Chevy Silverado Z-71, Silver with side graphics, and lots of stickers in the back window. I'm on bike #130.

Cell phone: 262-914-4931

Being nervous is normal. I have been riding for almost 27years, and I was still nervous as hell the first time I went. My first track...Road America baby

Just remember to go at YOUR own pace, and don't ride faster than your comfort level. You will be amazed at how soon the butterflies go away once you're on the track. This is NOT a race, and there are strict safety/passing rules that are enforced by the control riders. The first lap or two of every beginner session is used as a warmup lap to make sure the tires are heated. These aren't "slow" laps, just slower than the normal pace.

You will be fine, and you're going to have one of the greatest days you've had in a long time. It will be interesting to see your reation when come back from the first session on the track.

Have fun, and ride safe

+1 on bringing extra gas

With my Hayabusa (I miss her ) I would normally get ~35mpg, but on the track at Road America, I was only getting ~18mpg. I went through almost two tanks of gas in one track day.

SmartDrug,

You have most of the info that you need above. I will be there from the 19-23rd. I have a Gold Excursion (most likely the only one there) and will have a white trailer. My leathers say WINK on the back, so I shouldn't be too hard to find.

Two things to add to the info above; I am not sure where you live, but I live in Hoffman Estates, and a couple of guys are coming over tonight to get ready for this weekend (Grattan). You are more than welcome to come over and do the following, learn and see first hand what it takes to prep the bike (minimal), get a little comfortable and ask tons of questions, meet a CR (Control Rider) Ron Hix, and you can ask him to look after you closely on the track at RoadAmerica. Try on and perhaps borrow a full leather suit, a pair of gloves, a pair of boots, and a back protector. I have an extra suit that might fit you depending upon your size.

PM me if you are interested in coming over. As far as trailering your bike up there, I may be able to take it up there for you if my new trailer is ready this coming Monday.


Hope to be able to help ya out. By the way, I am relatively new at this Track Day thing as well, so I know exactly what you are talking about.

Brian

At least those tires will FINALLY get used like they are supposed to

The bike prep is easy. I suggest using that crappy painter's tape as a first layer on the lights. The cover them with duct tape. It makes cleanup easier. Naturally, black is the preferred duct tape color, especially for that bike. I doubt you'll need knee sliders on your first track day, especially at that course.

Track-specific info:
Take it easy, especially on the slicker corners like 5,6,12 (Canada), 14 (onto the front straight). With the 'bends' coming out of the carosel, DON'T go hard on the gas. Natural instinct is to do that since there's a 3/4 mile long straight there. Even a 600 can toss you on your ass if you do that. The enterance to Canada corner has a lot of tar strips, so go slow until you find the line.

Oh, and relax and have fun. That's the main thing, especially when somebody else is picking up the tab!

for the record you should be hitting that at closer to 90 to get any appreciable lean angle(while still leaving room for correction).

Here's a good video of Road America for ya

This is a CCS race onboard with Mike Simone of Team Simone Racing. This is a LOT faster than the "B" group will be going, but it will give you an idea of the track layout. The more you watch it, the more familiar it will seem when you're actually on the track.

Road America, CCS race video

RA was my first track day also, don't sweat it. It was a ton of fun, and RA is gnawing at me to come back. Go do it, just don't ride over your head and you'll have more fun than you can imagine on a street bike.

Relax, you'll be OK. One of my first posts here was "Hey, that's me!" in a conversation about a really really slow guy at a blackhawk trackday. For what it's work, RA should be a better place to be slow - there's plenty of safe, legal places for people to get around you!

Sounds like you're on track for prep - as others have pointed out, just tape over or remove anything that's 'glass.'

Make sure your jacket and pants zip together with a 'full circumference' zip (there'll be a gap at the front no matter what, it just can't be a short zipper only in the back of the suit). Knee sliders aren't required, though if you catch on quick (as some do) you'll want them.

If you have trouble finding boots, I can bring my street boots (size 11, so a bit small, and they don't have all the toe sliders and fancy race stuff, but they'll do).

As others have said, just relax and have fun. Don't get hung up on how fast you are or aren't, just have fun riding in an environment where there's no cops, no oncoming traffic turning left in front of you, and no trees 3 feet from the road surface.

Look me up if you want - I'm betting I'll be the only person there with 2 triumphs (955 in my avatar and a graphite 675)

Where is everybody planning on pitting? Just looking for a general area of interest.

Near the top of the hill?
Near the concession stand?
Near the bathrooms?

We need a big CLSB flag to hoist up and claim our ground

I always pit as close to the NESBA trailer and the CRs as possible. It makes getting in and out of tech much easier since it is closer. I'll have a white trailer and a Gold Excursion.
