Talking nesba track day info please...

i went to an open track day at blackhawk farms with brent s. last year...looked like tons of fun...for beginners, that want to try it out, how difficult is it get started? do i have to modify my bike at all to make it track legal? i know that you need personal protective gear, but i really don't want to alter my r1...or do i just have the wrong idea?

Check out the rider's manual

You don't have to do much. The main thing is having the right protective gear. Read that maual a few times. There's lots of good info.

Any more ?'s there are quite a few NESBA riders on this board.

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

all you need to do for nesba begginer group is tape up or remove all lightsl, and get rid of the mirrors.

No worries about the R1! Just take it easy, you control the throttle wrist. I used to have an R1 and loved it.

A little advice: sign up for the whole day. Once you do two sessions you'll be hooked. Track riding is like crack, its VERY addictive. I did my first trackday last August and signed up for the whole day. Its worth it!

Its easy to tape your lights. Just pull the fuses for all your lights and put duct tape over them (you don't want the heat from the ligths to melt the tape to your glass). Its not hard to take off when you're finished. And mirrors come off easily. Just slap a number on your tail and you're ready to rock!

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