  1. I'm the complete novice package with terrible body position and chronic difficulty staying on the race line. I've been to about 15 track days over the last 3 years, all at mid-ohio until last weekend at PittRace. I feel like I intellectually know where I should be and what I should be doing, but I find myself off the line, missing the apex, turning in late, etc. I definitely improve each time I go. I'm much less tense than I used to be, I look much further down the track than I used to.....so I don't feel stalled-out by any means but/and I'm acutely aware of many of things I don't execute
  2. Has anyone been through the N2 Advanced Training Program and have any thoughts about it? Did you go from there to more training? Notice your riding improve as a result of the program?
  3. I'll second both of what ksands says......PittRace was great, and I got to meet Tim in person too!
  4. Never mind, I just got an email from them: Concessions: will be open.
  5. I'm going to Pittrace this Saturday for my first time. Do they have concessions on site or do I need to bring all my food in that day?
  6. I've actually never been anyplace else.......I haven't been doing this very long. What should I check out? Any recommendations?
  7. An email from Gwen at Mid Ohio:
  8. I'll try to do that next time, or at least try to get into a faster novice group. I don't have any idea what my pace is. Do they break you up into groups in Intermediate and let faster people go out first? Or is it just random based on who lines up in the pits first?
  9. I have a random question that seems like it might be okay for this random thread: I've been riding Novice at Mid-Ohio for a while now. My question is, what is the criteria the coaches use to determine if you're ready for Intermediate? I'm not asking because I necessarily think I'm ready, but I want to know what they look for so I can focus on those things. Novice is still fine for me, but I do find myself getting less challenged. I know my BP still sucks and my bike might be under-powered for Intermediate, but I'm curious about what they want to see before they move someone up.
  10. I know I said it before, but I *really* appreciate all of your feedback. While I would never have bought this bike for the track, this is the one I happen to have to use for this. It's actually my first bike. It's in excellent condition but I think it's the slowest Ninja 600 ever made. I even have it over-geared since I used to run it on the highway so much before I got the Concours. I plan to drop back to the stock sprocket when I replace the chain. You guys have (mostly) confirmed what I actually was thinking, which is that it would take me some time before my ability runs into the
  11. I appreciate all the opinions. You guys have really helped me out. Thanks!
  12. Yes, those are exactly my tire sizes! I'll look into those. Thanks so much for the feedback. I really appreciate it!
  13. I'm thinking about getting into track riding and I need some advice about the bike I'm going to use and its tires. I have a '95 Kaw ZX600-C8 and it has 16" wheels. To say that my tire choices are limited would be an understatement. Since this summer will be my first season on a track, I don't expect to be setting records. I'm thinking that it'll take a bit of time for my skill to increase to my bike's capabilities, even with regular road tires on it. My question is, am I right? Am I wasting my time prepping this bike for the track since it'll be so limited by the the tire options, or
