Good track to start on because track density will be low. BHF is basically always sold out, lots of bikes to deal with. Also, the North half of Autobahn is one of the best learning tracks there is.

Come on out!

Actually, I think the think that helps is we have far more time to talk about what people need to work on, body position, lines, eyes... etc...

I've written a lot of it down... granted, I have a ways to go, but here is some of it http://www.apexjunkie.com

Hopefully it might help some of you progress a little faster as well.

OK, so if i read the rules rite, there is no bike prep for the beginners group. other than the obvious, leaks and loose parts and cover the lights. I also dont need a leather suit. I have a textile jacket, but no riding pants. Are over the ankle work boots ok or do i need riding boots too.

You will have to rent leathers from Garth if you don't have riding pants, they Don't allow Jeans anymore.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

Remove mirrors
Tape up all glass and plastic
Add numbers to front or rear of the bike
Have good tires
Have mechanically clean and safe bike free from leaks as well
Make sure you have the balls on the ends of your levers.

Leathers ARE required and have to be either one-piece OR have a full circumference zipper. (not sure about textiles.... check the manual, but it must be one piece or it must be full circumference zipper)

Anything I missed here guys?

It's not a class persay. The "B" group has a general meeting in the morning and then the CR's ride through and with the group the entire day. Since you want to sign up for Intro and it is full, you can sign up and pay for beginner and ride the whole day. Intro sessions are two free sessions held the first two of every morning.

If you want to become comfortable on the track since this may be the initial outing, listen at the "B" meeting and the CR's will tell you where to line up in relation to your riding and experience.

Keep your ears open and ask questions. The knowledge to be ingested here is limitless. Ride smart, ride safe, ride within your limits, and have fun learning.
