    For those who have small trailers?

    What's the interior height? And how difficult does it make loading and unloading not being able to fully stand?

    Class 1 hitch ok to tow bike and trailer?

    I have the Smc600r but also have an F150 to pull it with but it still makes me nervous even though it has worked fine for me. As you can see in the pic it still has a slight bend to it. My class 3 hitch says its rated for 500lb toungue weight and my bike wet plus carrier is 505lbs. I wouldn't trust it with a car.
  3. I must admit I'm a bit jealous. My day got cut in half last month due to rain even though when I scheduled the forecast said 15% chance 😔
  4. I'm considering getting a small enclosed trailer to haul my bikes. When I say small I mean small enough to fit into a garage (7ft high, 8ft wide). So something more like 5x8 or close to it. It seems that to have one that fits that criteria I will more than likely have to sacrifice interior height. I'm 5'10" and would imagine it would be severely inconvenient to get my bike in and out of a trailer with only 5ft interior height but apparently people are making it work. How you guys handling it?

    Brotha, I just had my 1st track day and I hope you got extra money laying around because it is an expensive hobby. Assuming you got all your gear ready, all that is left is the bike prep which isn't too overwhelming for novice. I went ahead and prepped my bike as if I was ready for advanced (safety wire, changed the coolant, removed mirrors etc) just for the added experience and safety. Just go down the list that was nicely provided to you above one by one and make sure all the requirements are met. As stated, you will start in novice and will be following a coach with more restrictions than intermediate and advanced but even though your hands will be a bit tied at first, it's a great time to learn the track lines and build confidence in your technique and still have fun. If you haven't signed up yet get on it.

    What to expect on track day?

    I appreciate all you guys help so far. Being new to all of this I am slowly making plans as to what steps I need to take when it comes to prep and gear like finally ordering a 1 piece and back protector (damn they are expensive). I know not much is required for novice but I really want to go in as if im ready for intermediate at least so I can have the knowledge and experience so it wont be too overwhelming once I move up. As far as the bike goes, I plan on going with Engine Ice for coolant. I have seen bikes in intermediate (at least in videos) that just taped over their turn signals instead of removing them which I thought was required? Also, I see you can either use safety wire or silicone for the plugs and caps. I prefer not to drill anything, so is silicone as effective or more complicated? Back to the actual day, is lunch only for riders or can guest participate? I work 3rd shift and HATE getting up early. If im correct twilight is only for intermediate and up? Is it any better or worse than the day session?

    What to expect on track day?

    Couple more questions. How many spots are there usually per day? How does one advance past novice and how far out should one register? I know there is a late registration but I wouldn't feel comfortable trying to sign up before I saw the weather for that day and am worried that may be too late.
  8. I love my beautiful 13 Daytona 675 in black but it wasnt the original color I wanted (blue and white). OEM fairings are ridiculous expensive and even if I went with cheap chinese fairings I would still need to paint the tank. I never had a bike painted before so I'm going in blind with trusting someone to do it. Any reccomendations?

    Thanks for the info.
  10. Hello, new to the forum and in my 3rd year of riding and now itching to get on the track. After looking through the track section and the mid ohio site I got some good info but still have some questions that I couldn't find answers to or missed, so hoping someone could help me out. 1) It appears that the rules for the novice group are a little more lenient as far as bike prep and gear. Why is that exactly? What separates it from intermediate and advanced? 2) How long are you on the track at a time and how much down time is there? 3) Is there a spot for family to hang out or anything for kids? 4) I have a truck and a motorcycle carrier. What other equipment is necessary or highly recommend? 5) I know it says they will go on rain or shine but what about heavy storms or lightening?
