There really should be more activity under this topic.

Trackdays are where its at for sportbike riding. The street is for posing if that's what you're into. If you are going to ride with any degree of speed or skill then get to a track. Its far safer than the street and some insurance companies will cover your bike at the track. Its not a competitive event. That's the key.

Again from the kawisucki rider? Brad, I know you think I have nice legs, but I won't hold an umbrella for you at the next Special Olympics GP. And for Christ's sake, don't mislead people...you know you wish you were as smooth a rider as me!


You know what this is leading up to.......somebody's making the long journey to the Great White North with a new SM this Fall to kick your skinny ass!!! Can you say powerslide, princess???

Perhaps that was misworded....

I can't wait to post a trackday experience, for the first time. And if Brad keeps it up, it's gonna read something like this... "I went up to Canada with my new Supermotard to ride with a complete poof named Brad (a.k.a. "maDDtraPPer"). Imagine my surprise when he showed up at the track w/ pink leathers and bunny ears on his helmet..."

O OH, I know a dude that has pink in his leathers, and pink lettering on his race bike.....he's FAST....must mean guys who have pink on their leathers, or bikes should be avoided at all cost's...

For those of you familiar with Speedway racing, there's a rider named Bobby "Boogaloo" Schwartz who has always worn pastel colors like pink, blue, and yellow in his leathers/gear...he's fast as hell too! Maybe that's the secret?

Actually, being a corner worker is a great way to get started. A lot of organizations give credit to corner workers for future track days.

Without a doubt! But they're more addictive than crack....probably.
