Yeah great weather, I wore a thermel under my leathers but didn't need it

Riding up Banner I come upon a truck with patato plates plates and this guy was not only crossing the DY but driving In the left lane in order to get round the corners. You could see around them but still its not like he was going fast so why do that? So I down shift to 2nd gear as I want him to to know I'm behind him, don't trust him to pass. Well next corner he see's me I think good not pull over, nope the dipstick stops mid corner right in the middle of the road. Idiot as I pass him on the DY, splitting lanes. WOW that's the second time on Banner that some old fart did that to me.

Morons, got be ready for anything here.

Yeah I ride with no Meds which Is why I can't crash

What scares me Mark Is what you say about the track

" got to get a beater as you going to crash it one day'

On the road I can ride my own pace, slow or faster but its up to me. On the track you're riding fast, lap after lap and if you get tired and make a mistake you're going down. If It get tired on the street i go slower or pull over. If you go slower than your group on the track you're going to get run over. :smilefing

Street

Its close, less than 2 miles and I'm riding

Its cheap, no not free but still cheaper then the track

I can burn a tank of gas and have a great time and be home in time to work or watch the race's. 3 hours of riding Is perfect.

dude...i have to cover this one with you again?

you speak of something you've never experienced before. your judgement of going to the track comes from what experience?

yes, you can ride your own pace on the street. from what i've seen, that pace never usually drops below 85.

if you ride the beginner/novice class, you can ALSO ride your own pace. intermediate is more your style, and you'd keep up with those guys JUST FINE. only class to beware of is advanced, and those are the racers. if you have fun riding with rudy, tony and me on the street, you would be perfectly comfortable in the intermediate class. you'd probably get tired of passing people in the beginner class.

you can pull over and rest on the street....yes. at big willow, a lap takes about 1:40 if you're just cruising. you can pull in AS OFTEN AS YOU WANT. you could go out and do one freakin lap, come back in, pitch a lounge chair, and watch TV for three hours. riding lap after lap? yea, maybe if there's a gun to your head. YOU decide how tired you are and YOU decide when to pull in. YOU ride as much or as little as you want, and as fast or as slow as you want.

why do i want a beater? not because i want to crash someday, but because i don't want to crash the R71 someday. also, i push hard at the track. i'm not out for an enjoyable sunday ride, i'm trying to lower lap times. that's the problem...you think you need to go there and play rossi. you can go there and ride your normal street pace in the intermediate class, easily keep up with everyone, and pull off whenever you want. what's more, you can work on technique, speed, cornering, braking and getting a knee down in a comfortable, controlled environment. you will become a BETTER rider for it.

what are the benefits?

NO cars
NO RVs
NO gravel trucks
NO blind corners
NO intersections
NO sand, guardrails, or other road hazards
NO opposing traffic

and best of all...
NO COPS.

cons?

- well....cost. er...umm....i said i'd pay for you to go, so that's not an issue.
- distance to drive....well, that does suck, but so far, that's the only con....and it becomes less of a con once you hit the track.

the medical card is such a cop out. since you're good at quoting facts and figures, call every california trackday organizer and find out how many deaths there have been on Cali tracks in the last 5 years. then, find out how many deaths there have been on ortega, palomar, monte, banner, ACH, GMR, and other roads in the same timeframe.

i'm willing to bet the death ratio is AT LEAST 20 to 1.

you take your life into your hands every time you hit the street. you have a SIGNIFICANTLY better chance of survival on the track.

just go to ONE trackday adrian.....JUST ONE. go with me and tony up to buttonwillow. i'll drive and take the trailer. you ride up for free, get in for free, hit the track for free....

and THEN give me your honest assessent of what a trackday is like. at least you'll have the experience to talk about it.

Cool Mark when you and Tony going? I'll plan on it as you're right I do need to experience both before I can judge

I have a new cam coming so stay tuned for vids

By the way I don't go balls out on the street at least not when riding with friends as don't want to get you guys In trouble. I ride a lot quicker alone
