First things first, how much riding experience do you have under your belt? Things happen a lot faster on the track so you don't want to be thinking about the braking process or the shifting process when you are out there. It should be second nature to you before you get out there.

To ride the track you don't need a license. Each track day orginazation will have its own rules and regulations. For the orgs. I ride all you need is a bike prepped for track in good working order and all your gear.

The track is the by far the best place to learn how to ride your bike at or near your personal limit, however its not a place to learn how to ride.

i havent been to a track event. I have a similar question, does your bike have to be insured? (i have a feeling the answer is no because a lot of the cars i see at track events DEFINITELY would not pass an emisions test)

Nope, a lot of the bikes you see at track days won't even have a title. As long as your bike passes tech you'll be able to ride it.
