Riders Manual

I can't find the link to the riders manual anywhere and the one's posted on here all lead to a dead link. Need to know what I gotta do to get my bike ready.

If your asking, it must not be Advanced.

You need to remove your mirrors.
Tape over all lights and reflectors. I'd pull the fuses on the lights as well. That way they don't get hot and the tape comes off easier.
If you don't have dedicated track gear, be sure to rent some from the Nesba site. There is no substitute for good gear.
Make sure your tires have good tread (I believe the manual states 80%)
If you need tires, show up early so you can get some changed.
Check your brake pads.
Make sure your fluids are where they need to be.
Make sure your oil filter and fill are tight!
Go over your bike and make sure everything is in good working order and clean her up.

Get a good nights rest the night before.
Show up early the morning of your event.
Be ready to have fun!

Mo,

Since you are riding with us, no worries. Ron & I are very familiar with the rules, as well as I have a copy of the manual in the trailer that you can read on the way to Putnam.

The rest we have already covered via email. Looking forward to getting you out there. Putnam is one of the best starter tracks we have. You are gonna love it!

Riding with us? You'll never be same. Hope your ready for this.

I may just have to drive home straight through so I can ride down with you guys. I don't know if I can miss a road trip.
