Nesba Questions...

Just wondering if there are any discounts for joining Nesba when doing track days? Or do I have to pay the 75 bucks to join plus the track day price or are they discounted? Also what would be a good way to go about getting together with someone that has a spot in a trailer for a ride to the track day?

-Dan

Nope, that is the price. Sometimes at the beginning of the year they do a membership drive and you can buy membership for $50 instead of $75. But considering that the only purpose of membership is to do track days, there is no additional discount on membership if you sign up for track days.

As far as finding rides, here is a great place to ask, and also the NESBA forums.

The trackdays are cheaper when you are a NESBA member. The savings depends on the track but you definately save. The membership is worth it.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

When you are ready to go, post up the week or so before an event, something like topic "Looking for ride to BHF" on the NESBA forum. Tons of CLSBers either ride together and/or pit together at all the events.

It is a great time! Also, follow the Roll Call posts to see who is going. If you are new, and don't know who to look for, go HERE for a listing of the active CLSB members at NESBA. I can add you in as soon as you have your number picked, etc...

Welcome to the addiction.

Will do. Also what would I have to do to my RR to get it ready for the track? Besides the obvious, like taking the fuse out for the lights and taping them up.

Short list of what to do to the bike per class.

Intro - show up and have fun (nothing to the bike)
Beginner - Remove mirrors, tape all glass and plastics (preferably remove fuses, but not required) Must have numbers that match what you registered as.
Intermediate - Same as B group
Advanced - Same as B group, PLUS safety wire oil fill plug, oil drain plug, oil filter. Swap out antifreeze for Distilled Water or Water Wetter.

I think that is the gist, if I missed anything, it is in the manual that T2 linked for you above.

a few other tips from a fellow recent first timer

-bring LOTS of water, you will drink more then you realize. a bottle for each session plus two at lunch.

and when the words nitro and lemonade are in the same sentence use extreme caution

<-- Chris

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

Nitro Lemonade? I have done track days before out in Colorado and man did I drink a lot of water. Of course I would sweat out a liter in my suit per session!

If you plan on doing lots of track days with NESBA they do offer some discount incentives:

Quote:
The Multi-day discount program lets members sign up for the first day of a multi-day event and get each subsequent day at $15 off the regular price.

The Package discount gives members who sign up for 12+ days at one time a 15% discount.

Make sure you have the proper riding gear. The rider's manual covers that. You can rent gear if needed, but reserve it well in advance to make sure it's available.

Make sure your bike is in excellent mechanical condition. It doesn't have to be pretty, but it needs to NOT leak and/or break down. Make sure your tires are fairly new. Tires are cheap insurance compared to fixing your bike due to bad tires.

Most important things to do:
1. Go with an open mind towards learning.
2. Leave your ego at home.
3. Have fun and ride within YOUR limits.

Plus it's cool to be a member, you will want more and more track days, and you will get a nifty card and a t-shirt and stickers, and be part of the cool club

Jon, that is a take off on a famous qoute from a Tom Cruise movie called Jerry MaGuire. If you haven't seen it, come and borrow it from me.

There is a line in the movie, "You had me at Hello." of I recall correctly.
