Track Day: The Need For Speed

  • Apr 27, 2013 · 7:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Do you want to ride hard as hard as you can without worrying about a ticket or cars on the road?  Do you want to practice looking and leaning through turns confidently?  Or do you just want to go fast?  Well, come with us to the track and do all of those things and more!

This will be our first official track day meetup at Summit Point Park in Summit Point, WV.  The organization hosting the track day is Motorcycle Excitement.  You can find more info about the track day at http://www.motorcyclexcitement.com/.

So what do you need to attend a track day:

  1. motorcycle (of course) - sport bike only, no cruisers - good condition tires with at least 70% of the tread.
  2. leather riding suit - one or two piece
  3. full face helmet
  4. gauntlet type leather gloves - covering goes past the wrist
  5. leather riding boots - need go above the ankles
  6. back protector

You can rent everything, except a bike, if you don't currently own them.

There is a $25 membership fee with Motorcycle Excitement for the year.  The track day is $225, paid directly to Motorcycle Excitement either online or in-person.

If you haven't been to the track before or have reservations about it, feel free to post questions here or ask us in-person.  Also, feel free to come out even if you aren't riding the track with us.  It will be a great way to see what a track day is all about.

**Inclement weather reschedules are posted and e-mailed the evening before the ride**

      This is Shenny with RL, but I think TPM has quite a few Shenny dates on the weekend as well. NESBA is the only one that has any main dates on the weekend this year. TPM- https://www.google.com...­
