You guys will know

Im doing as much research as I can to prepare to pop my track-day cherry. I have ran across an abundance of information on here to help. Thanks. However, I have only found a few web sites for the organizations that sponsor them. Help me out? Any and all websites/ info you guys have is appreciated.

Two of the biggest are

Nesba
www.nesba.com

Sportbike Track time
www.sportbiketracktime.com



Some others are (taken from the 2009 RRW trackday directory)

Curvechasers
www.curvechasers.com


Cycle Options
www.cycleoptions.com

Elite Sportbike
www.elitesportbike.com

Fastrack Riders
www.fastrackriders.com

Lone Star Track Days
www.lstd.com

Midwest Cafe' Racing Association
www.mcraracing.com

Tony's Track Days
www.tonystrackdays.com

TrackAddix Track Days
www.trackaddix.com



There are many others but figured I'd just list a few from all parts of the country. Check out the websites to see which ones run at tracks close to you.


EDIT: Also, if you live near a Cycle Gear, they'll carry a Road Racing World 2010 trackday directory sometime early next year. It'll have most all trackday orgs listed with contact info, dates, and tracks.

If you post where you are located it will help people give you some more organizations closer to where you are.

A good magazine that has alot of trackday organizations as well as trackday calendars is Roadracing World. You can find it at most Cycle Gear stores and your better motorcycle shops. Definitely worth the subscription. You can also go to roadracingworld.com and I believe they have an events calendar. I think there is a few trackdays coming up in December at Road Atlanta and a few coming up at Jennings through December. They will be fairly close for you.

I CANT WAIT either!!! I have been on NESBA and Roebling road is where I think I will start. I want to get to Barber eventually but it seems to be a VERY technical track.

I am getting geared up for the track cherry to be popped. Was going through her yesterday for tech and noticed some broken sh!t.

https://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.p...84#post2655884

Pretty upset about it.

Also, how loud is 104db? I noticed that jennings, from what I could find, is the only track with a noise restriction.
Thanks fellas.. and ladies.

I've ridden with both STT and NESBA, although not recently with NESBA. STT has a better program, I believe, for newbie riders. Rider meeting is at 8:20 in the morning and then you go to the classroom until about 10 minutes before your session starts. After you come in from the first session, you go back to the classroom. If I remember correctly, you do either three or four classroom session and then you go out for the last 3 or 4 sessions of the day without the classroom sessions inbetween your track sessions. Make sure to ask any of the track coaches for help........they cannot read your mind and know that you have questions. Every single one of them that I've had any contact with are more than happy to help a person out, both on the track and off. My wife and I usually do between 8 and 9 trackdays a year, with STT in the southern area, which includes Tally, Nashville, Barber, Road Atlanta, Jennings, Roebling, and CMP. You are actually in a great part of the country for tracks. Don't ever sell Tally short, even though it is an older track and not as fancy as some of the others, it is a pretty technical track and if you can go fast at Tally, you will have become a pretty good rider.

If it ain't fast........It ain't fun!!

I am ANTI classroom. I didn't come here to sit around...on a desk and listen to someone talk...what a waste of time.

30 mins..quick orientation. quick tips and let people get out there and ride.
you've spent all this time..prepping bike
packing and getting ready...driving...getting here..to this point.

and now..you're shoved into a classroom...are you seriously kidding me ????

and no one is paying attention anyways..cause you hear all these bikes out on the track...and you're thinking about the glorious sunshine out there and all the fun to be had..


Just personal opinion...STT is great otherwise.

I cant wait. I have been to the sites and have to get my membership but hope to be on the track by the end of FEB.

Hey xrated,

First of all, I just noticed you live right next to the Gap!! Next time I plan a trip there I will let you know.

Also, been to jennings? Any trouble with loud exhaust. Its 5 hrs from me but I am looking to go to FL in FEB and am wondering how loud 104db really is. I guess I could just go to a stereo shop or something like that.

Suggestions?

New track riders need classroom time. Well, unless you want them crossing your line because they decided at the last minute not to pit or something...

It says* 104 dB, but I have never seen anyone get told their bike was too loud. I run a full race Akra there on an 08 with no problem. I have also run a D&D full system that was 119 dB from 6 ft at half throttle there. They didn't seem to mind.

As for suggestions, check out gottrack.net. The forum is useful. Niner1000rr is the owner, and he is also a forum member.

Yup...I have a stud finder on mine. It uses the compass magnet...

I saw the sound meter on an episode of Top Gear.

It's LOUD. I have heard some ridiculous bikes there, and now one ever says anything. I wouldn't show up with an open pipe, but short of that, you're probably good-to-go.

We'll be there Monday. C'mon down!

Guys, thanks for the comments. Glad you guys enjoy our events.

As far as classroom, no it's not needed but is encouraged! It does help.

But the biggest thing is the organizer. A good organizer will have a good supporting staff and this will make all the difference in the world for the new rider.

On the other side, a questionable organizer can allow things to be dangerous and not help the rider nearly enough as they should.

So in the end, research the organizer that you plan to attend and make sure they are up to par. And JenningsGP IMO is the BEST track for a first timer!

Good luck, if I can help feel free to ask! :D Happy to help in anyway possible!

There's no need to get a membership. Just come on down. We go about once a month. i'll let you know next time we're going to jennings.

Actually, you should join this site www.floridasportbikers.com It's a little bit of a social-networking site for South Florida people, but they put on several awesome events at Jennings every year. There's one in February. It may be full by now.

Motovid puts on a good Trackday. Hit up wisconsinsportbikes.net, that's where all the blackhawk junkies hang out, myself included.
