Northeastern (NY/NJ) Track day virgins

I'm itching to get a track day or a few (with an instructor) in this coming season, any of you track virgins in the north east down to pop your cherry?

I'm thinking about hitting up a trackday sometime this spring/summer in NJMP. I want to hit up Louden first.

I'll definitely do NJMP, lets try to get something together for that. Louden is in NH? You riding up there or trailing?

Louden is in NH. I am trying to figure out a way for me to trailer the bike down there. I would rather not ride down there, if anything hapens to the bike i'll be SOL with no ride back to CT. I don't know if I really want to buy a trailer or make one but we'll see I got a month or so to figure it out.

If you guys want to have a dotNET trackday at NJMP it'll be cool. What dates are good for you guys?

That is true, being stranded in NH with an unridable bike would suck pretty bad haha. You could prob find something on craigslist cheap.

I'm good any days that don't fall on mon, tues or thurs, let get some more dotnet members on board here and set it up, is there a schedule they have to see what dates are available? I didn't see it on their site or on sportbiketracktime. Have either of you guys been to the track before? I have never been, I was hoping to do like a novice day with an instructor or maybe just someone of experience to show the basics.

Nope it will be my first time. I think Tony's Trackdays has a listing/schedule for their events. I was looking at May 3/4th but thats on a mon/tues.

I'm not sure if Fred (struck) has been to the track, but I know he has been waiting to unvail himself as the white ranger on the track.

Any of Tony's Days are a great way to start. Its how I started out and I have tried quite a few others too. Its well organized and newbie friendly. He tries to cater his business to newer riders helping them get acquainted to track riding. Excellent instructors too.

Both Louden or NJMP are great to start at. Louden a bit more technical, NJ faster.

I havent heard the word "megazord" in forever
I'm not sure when I'll be hitting NJMP yet. School and looking for a new job has been taking up a lot of my time. I was thinking of riding to/from because I might not have my trailer until summer (unless I whore myself out on-campus ).

i did some "mini-moto" back in the day as a youngin but still a trak-newb with the RR since i've only managed one intro- trackday, and I was warned (twice) to refrain from any "Mighty-Morphing" shenanigans.

teampromotion seems to be at NJMP the most, so unless a bunch of you guys go another Org. i'll probably go with them.

I might be down to go to NJMP. Let me know what dates you guys are looking at. Lanco Rider wants to head there to. I think we could get a good group together. I know NESBA, SportbikeTrackTime, and ProMotion go there a bunch.

Hmm... I will have to check out Team Pro-motion and see what they have for prices and accomadations.

I will post up the dates that I am interested right here in this thread.


Fred, just bite the bullet and do it! You don't need a trailer, i'm sure you can find someone either on here or locally that will give you a hand.


BTW for those that do double duty, check out the East Coast forum for a dotNET ride down to MD for a car/truck/airshow.... its in June, so plenty of time to get your act together LOL....

My wife and I did tonys @ NJMP for our first time.. its def a first timer friendly track. NHMS is more technical and very fun but might overload the senses. Id hit the NJ dates first .. my wife and I will be there May 3/4 and at the NH 12th date. One thing youll find out is that if you get into trouble with a ride or bike problem.. people jump out of the woodwork to help you out.. TTD are a great group of people!

It might be worth a trip to vanson and check the used or discount rack. I bought a 1pc last year brand new for $450 PREF with armor ... they also have two pc ones which is nice if you only do a few trackdays.. Ive also rented them at the track. Vanson gets in the rental track suits at the end of each year and sells them cheap so you might get lucky.

Hey all

Just poking in to say HI and let everyone know I'm happy to answer any questions regarding our trackdays. (or pretty much track riding in general)

I can still remember feeling like I wanted to throw up just before putting my helmet on to head out for my first lap. (back then, we didn't have trackdays so I was in a school that prepared you to start racing)

Anyway, by the 3rd lap or so, the feeling had changed from sickness to "this rocks"


Because I so clearly remember how scary it can be for first timers, we have continued to refine our "first timers" program to ensure you have fun and feel safe.

There are two women riders that immediately come to mind when I think of "nervous first timers" .

We've been doing this for over 12 years now, and with these particular riders, I was really worried that we just might not succeed in showing them the joy of riding the track.

After some special attention, however, I'm happy to report that both riders are planning to sign up with us for every trackday we have this year that fits into their schedule.


Bottom line is that nothing should keep you from enjoying the track environment. There are lots of trackday org's out there now for every part of the country. Keep in mind that they don't all cater to the same type of rider, so do your homework - and find the one (or couple) that fits you best.

And if you have an excuse... read this list of common ones and see if yours is on it. EXCUSES

Excellent! Should be a great time.

FYI, we've instituted a new "first time track rider program"

http://www.tonystrackdays.com/catego...rs-program.htm


While we've always worked hard to ensure first timers are safely introduced into track riding, we are kicking it up a notch with it's own program during the morning.

Nope...this is Tony.

Pricing is as listed on the website. Keep in mind that pricing bumps up the closer we get to each event (if it doesn't sell out beforehand).

How many spots do you have left for that beginner program... this will be my first trackday.... I saw in your other thread you guys have a $25 discount for first timers... Does that apply for each day or for the entire two day event....

Thanks Tony!...

Plenty of space in the beginners program so no worries there.

Technically you're only a first timer for the first day... so usually you only get $25 off day one.

However, since you missed the early payment period, I'll send you a discount worth $50 if you're signing up for both days. Send me an EMAIL if you want it... it's only good for May 3,4 though.
