First Track Day September 2nd BH Farms

Hey everyone,

I am going to burst the track cherry by doing the beginner portion of Nesba's track day on September 2nd. Bike prep for the beginner's is just pull the fuses to lights and tape all lights right? Put a number on the tail and on the windscreen?

Who else is going that I can pick your brain and get some pointers.

That sound about all that is required though. You may look into other thinks such as draining coolant and replacing with water, safty wire drain plug etc... Small easy things to do but could save other missing track time in case of an oopps. Don't forget the mirrors. Drop tire pressures and loosen chain. If you don't have to ride your bike there then don't. Others will chime in but this is a start.

Most impotant thing to bring is your checkbook as your going to want to finish the day out. It's like a drug

Bring a cooler with plenty of water and a comfy chair to sit on. Pit by some people you know and hang out under thier easy up to stay out fo the sun.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Tape and remove mirrors. Then go. Unless you're doing intro group, in which case no prep is required (95%sure) check the site. Have fun, don't give up after the first session, give it a chance to grow on you.

I'll be in the B group that day as well.

Read Wink's site...

www.apexjunkie.com

And read the NESBA rider's manual (it has the prep requirements, gear requirements, and a lot of other helpful info)...

Thanks everyone. Gonna drive the bike to the track that morning, but bringing the SUV as well. I'll be in Rockford that day so it won't be far, but I'll have to do my prep once I get there.

Just looking to get my feet wet this year before giving it my all in the next couple years. I can't get too addicted yet cuz I'm saving for my new house!

Thanks Nate!

Appreciate the feedback on the site. Always looking for more. Can't wait until silly season when I get some time to finish it up. Good luck FullThrottleZX, the site should help you a bunch. It was designed to help folks get started.

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

Wink yeah I checked out your site and it's very detailed and helpful. I trust I'll have a great time at the track in the morning, and if I don't decide to fork over some more money I can always take tons of pics of all of you while doing many of these.

I went and watched once before this year and I did a lot of that.
