complaining about track spending is like comparing penis size....

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

This is not allowed!!! BAN HIM!!!

Never cause yourself the agony of creating a post so you can look at your own dollar signs. This will just be a constant reminder of how much you are spending and cause others - like myself - to have nighmares about how much


.... MORE I HAVE SPENT THAN YOU ALREADY!!!!!!!

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

If it makes you feel any better, my crash last weekend will cost about $2.5k.



Anyway, isn't this why they call it "track crack" ???

Supermoto open practice is $40. Jump stuff and drag knee (or peg, dpending on your style) all in the same lap. And you can crash your bike all day long and you're out a $20 lever or 2.

Supermoto is great fun, but it is different. Check out the latest CycleNews interview with B-Boz.

Great interview (off topic)

I LOVE trackdays, but they're spendy. I'm thoroughly addicted to the ZONE as well. Its total fuckin ZEN. It happens more frequently and intensely when I'm racing but as far as bitching about trackday cost, go roadracing. Trackdays will seem like a steal.

He said $45 - $60.... that's 50% difference. And thats race licensed riders with basically no supervision.. Heck, GLRRA at Grattan was the same I think and Eric would f'ing SCREAM at us for riding like a bunch of asshats. "You idiots keep it up and no one will be left standing to race Sat and Sun"

Good times!!

Package Deals are the way to go. For the 09 Season be sure to check into STT's package deals. I think you get 13 track days and get 20% off or something like that. Plus elite perks of course.. cancellations.. etc.. etc

sure its pricey but in the long run you save money and atleast you know whats going on that month

Long live the Blue Dot!!!!
