I would love to be there but I'm still deployed. I'll be back in time for thanksgiving. we can definitely meet up then. I live in Richmond hill right off of 17Anything down towards or in Florida? I am sure there is something...btw bike night at Fuddruckers (off 17 in Berwick) in Savannah Sept 25 show up at 630 to hang out 430 to cruise! Would love to see some local 600rr's there...I hate/love being the only one!
I want to start in the controlled environment then move to public days once I know what to expect. Right now i have never been so its all new to me. either way its like you said I know it will be a blast.I've gone with southerntrackdays and public days. Public days are nice because they're often. You also have more freedom that way but that could be bad. Orginization days at Jennings are nice in their own way because its very controlled for a novice rider. Either way you go, it'll be a blast. Prepare your wallet. Also, read the other threads regarding bike prep and stuff to take with you to make life easier.
Edit: Jennings is in FL and there's PBIR as well that looks fun but I can't get myself to drive 9 hrs
I'll do that.Join the forum at floridasportbikers.com. Southerntrackdays.com is through there. They do TD's at Jennings with very good control riders and advice. Good bunch of guys/ girls. Put me on as your referance.
have you riden any of these track. if you have how was your experience?STT does TDs at RRR, Jennings, Kershaw S.C.(CMP), Barber, Road Atlanta, and Talladega all just a few hours from Savanna. PBIR is a dangerous place. Several org. refuse to even ride there. CornerSpeed does VIR. Tdub
Are you refering to PBIR? Yes I have been there. No, I am not a rider. I was there last fall when there was a senseless death. I was there when an AMA official was there to evaluate the track as they requested a superbike race. He said, and I quote,"I am surprised you would run 125s here...there is no way in hell we will run a SB race here". PBIR is a death trap in it's current configuration. The track has a really cool layout, but concessions are made because of the other tracks. NO, we will not return!!! JMO TdubI'll do that.

I believe theres problems with all but jennings for a new track rider.RRR, Jennings, Barber, Tally, Kershaw are all top notch tracks! Tdub
I can tell you have never been to Tally. It is probably the best first timer track ever. A little over a mile long. 95mph top speed. Short but technical. Dont remark about a track you have not been to. Tdub
Just my $0.02
I havent even been to the other tracks im bashing.:spank:
Apparently not on both counts..Regardless, thank you. I do have an excellent ability to read. Unlike some (read below again). I can research which tracks would be smart to attend as a cherry popper.
I was just pointing out the inaccuracy of your research and advise.Talladega is asking for the same trouble roebling is with the speed aspect.
I signed up for florida sporbikers today. I added you as a reference.Join the forum at floridasportbikers.com. Southerntrackdays.com is through there. They do TD's at Jennings with very good control riders and advice. Good bunch of guys/ girls. Put me on as your referance.
so how do I properly setup my suspension? I've been riding a while but more commuting than anything else.Cool. Find Niner1000rr. He's a control rider with southern track days and willing to help however possible. He rides ALOT of track days at different circuits. Something like at least a TD every week.
There's also a thread I started long ago with lots of websites for different organizations. Save them because we both know you wont be at Stewart? forever. Just watch your arse and make it back.
As for tires, I ran 2CT's for my TD's and they were great. Regardless which tire you choose, they're not fully functional without your suspension set up properly.
