Come on now, we have HITM and Low Society . Classy rides.

Working on full leathers, will need to be shown the ropes myself. Spoke with Nathan over at Rider's Discount about finding an event and he suggested sportbiketracktime.com which does show a "novice" level, so will keep an eye on the '13 schedule and hit you up! Honestly still adapting to riding period, so some track time will be a real eye-opener and assist me.

Just wish my bike wasn't "pretty" as I fear laying the damn thing down now, knew I should have bought something blah like silver.

Sportbiketracktime is a great organization to ride with. I'm friends with a bunch of the instructors. They have a cool program you should look into. It's to get people to the track. They offer up 2 free slots to people who have never been on track before.

And no worries about novice group. I've known of people who are just weeks out of the MSF classes who do just fine. You'll learn more in a track weekend than in a year on the street.

I just bought a 1 piece for next year, so we'll have to get a weekend planned. If you let me know what size you take, I'll keep an eye out for a suit. I just bought a slightly rashed suit for stupid cheap. If I'm not out there whatever week you go, you can borrow this one.

I'll look into that once they release 2013 schedules, thanks for the heads-up. As cheesy as it is I'm pounding info from Keith Code's book and DVD this winter and want to hit a trackday as soon as possible once the weather breaks.

I need to get sized up and I'll let you know on the suit, I believe Nathan suggested I'd be around a 41 but don't quote me there.

Good looking out!

Code's book and DVD are awesome tools. Great to freshen up on every now and then.

The first track day is the Team Chicago track day in early April. I'm planning to hit that this year. Weather is the biggest gamble that time of year. A few years back they were dealing with snow in the morning sessions.

Biggest thing to do before the track is get your suspension set properly for your weight. For you, I'd talk to the guys at RD and see who they recommend over there.

How is riders direct joe? I've dealt all my purchases with SBTG but it'd be great to deal with someone local.

It's also refreshing to know there are fresh riders like myself who want to hit the track. I've only logged in >6k miles but have a crazy itch for track time.

Have only picked up gloves from them, more setup for online distribution than in-person but Nathan there brought out several pairs to try on that were in stock. It's nice being able to do that, rather than guess.

Although I've heard raving reviews about Chad@STG too! Might be in contact with him about a helmet soon. Ryan @ PerfMoto here in town is awesome as well, ordered some parts from him along with had my rear tire put on there, he actually came over Saturday after work and assisted in riveting my chain and setting up the rear wheel after the 520 conversion. Good people.

Will look into suspension setup, reminds me I have an adjustment issue up front I need to look into.

Yeah I def need to get my suspension tweaked. I feel like a feather on my bike, the previous owner had well over 150lbs on me.

Ryan's a great guy, I will never deal with them again after making me wait 2 weeks for my jacket and turning out it was the wrong size and non-refundable.

Don't blame you in that situation, we'll get out to the track and be pulling away from Tom in no time this Spring.

Suspension tune for our weight by his buddy but they lost their kid so he was stressed out and not free a lot. Supposed to do it next year. Along with chad hooking me up on a tune for my bike. We will see.

So I'm excited for tomorrow, got a lot of hw but I'll swing it.
