Track=Safe??

I find it really interesting that the top two resolutions are "going to a track" and "be safe".

I think that they are both the same, don't you?

Trackdays

I made my first trip to a track last weekend (Brands Hacth in Kent). I was only there to watch the British Superbikes, not to take part. I was amazed just how fast those riders were going :eek: It doesn't look that fast on TV.

As for track days, the thing that puts me off is the cost and the fear of damaging my bike. I'd love to have a go, but on a hired bike, not mine.

Does that make me a Wuss?

Gear

I put down new gear, but in the interest of being safe. I also want to do my first track day, but I definitely need some leathers before I can do that. Not to mention the possible Gap trip... :)
