How much of a PITA is it going to be to buy my membership and pay for the rest of the day AT the event?

It shouldn't be that big of a deal, but why don't you just sign up for the whole day now if you plan on doing it?

Just skip the intro. you're going to end up doing a full day anyhow. The intro is like crack. It's just enough to get to hooked. I know you well enough to know that the intro thing aint gonna hold you over for nothing.

Go on Sunday and you can haul my bike too!!! hahaha, I will have a videocamera with me and I can get shots of your session.

May be he shouldn't pay for the whole day and just do the intro and not beginner. What if he gets completely board out there in beginner, like I'm sure he will, and decides to ride a seat stander, or a high chair heal clicker, or do a Knack Knack or Cann Cann 12 O'clocker down the front straight and then stuff all the people that can't ride into turn 1?

Then Garth would kick him out and he would be out 200 bucks.

there is some REALLY slow folks... as in hazadous
as for moving up, it usually few track days, and asking one of the control riders to follow ya to see if you can be bumped up.

If you only do the Intro sessions, then YES. Otherwise, you'll have the opportunity to pick up the pace quite a bit mostly depending on traffic. I think they have new passing rules for Beginner too though, so even then you might be alright.

You're not gonna get stuck behind anybody at RA. It's a 4 mile track, tons of room to pass.

Yep! First 2 sessions are parade laps, mostly. New passing rules fairly rock - anywhere the bikes are verticle, though Bender has started asking us to be done before the #2 brake marker - not a bad idea for the B group, IMHO.

So for beginner or intermediate all I need to do is tape up the headlight, tail light, turn signals and take off the mirrors. Some people said I have to change my coolant or safety wire some stuff but according to there riding manual that's only for advanced.

its a good idea to do the full prep routine even though its not required in B and I. Like they say, you don't want to be "that guy" that fucked up the track cuz you didn't change your coolant or wire up the bike

Ask me how to get a free kick in the teeth!
