Once again, you people on this damn website have "bucked my head up" and encouraged me into really killing myself
I think I am ready to put my bike on the TRACK
First, do you guys recommend signing up for a "track school" first? Or, should I just pay the $15 dollars at Gateway International Speedway and take my chances. Gateway charges $15 dollars to "drag" race, but I don't want to just go in a straight line. I want to hit the turns, drag my knee, and ride a distance greater than a 1/4 mile.
Does anyone know of a track school in, or close to St. Louis, MO?
There was a race a few weeks ago at Gateway's "oval" track, but I don't think I am ready for that just yet. As a matter of fact, I KNOW I AM NOT READY!!!!! I really want to enroll in a track school to learn as much as I can before I put my one and only bike in any more danger than I already do on the street
How much should I expect to pay for a track school?
I have a 2001 YZF-R6, blue/white, Yoshimura RS-3 Carbon Fiber Race Slip-On, Dyno Jet Stage 1 Jet Kit, and I am ready to put those mods to "good" use. I tried on the street a few times, but my "responsible" side got the best of me. I would hate to kill anyone, especially myself, trying to race, or "act like" I am racing on the public roads. I am kind of concerned about "going all out" and wrecking my bike on the track, but here is my theory...
"If I enroll in a track school and improve my skills. Great!! If I wreck my R6 in the process, oh well. I can just dedicate the 'battle scarred' R6 to track use only, and get the beautiful silver/black R1 as my street bike. (notice, I said get the R1 after I have improved my skills)
I really want to improve my riding skills, but I want to be taught by a professional. If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, or information that will help me, I will really appreciate it. After all, reading you guys' posts and looking up to you has gotten me into this predicament in the first place
Thanks in advance
