Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

Recommended Posts

Due to the popularity of the last OR track day, why not do it again in 2018? If you are on the fence about doing your first track day, this is the perfect opportunity to get a taste. There will be plenty of other members there with a vast amount of knowledge that will be happy to help/ provide guidance. I know a few of the members that joined us last year had a blast/ way more fun than they thought they would, and some of those same members may or may not be looking to get a bike to ride on the track.

Dates haven't been posted yet and this thread will be update regularly. Since it's about to suck for the next few months, lets get some conversation started! For those of you that joined us last year, please provide feedback! Obviously Mid-Oho ultimately runs the day but if there is something that I can change/fix let me know.

Want to thank everyone that came out last year! A special thanks goes out to @J_Copeland for letting me ride that sexy Italian beast all day.

Here are a few pictures that @DerekClouser and his fiance took last year.

Was a great time last year, will be a great time again in 2018.

 

As a side question - do people prefer doing this later in the season or would we like to aim early/mid season this time around?

Great, I'm in, whenever the date is chosen.  It was a blast last year!  Hope Dad can make this one if he can keep from getting kicked by horses.  His Street Triple RS is gonna be a hoot on the track.  As Tim said, if you're new here or to the track, please come out and say hello, even if you stay in the paddock.  Lot of experience on track on this board and we all want to get better and bring others along. 

I'm pretty much convinced my Daytona will be 90% track next season, can't wait to beat the hell out of it!  

Stolen photos from facebook of the OR day last year:  featuring @DerekClouser @Blitz @Tonik @bandit @what @Jester_ (I think I saw you in there...) and maybe @kbrok?

Earlier would be good I think.  More first timers in early means more opportunity to join in the fun at later dates.

@RidersDiscount, Mike always has the deals.  If he can't help you, check out the WERA classifieds for tons of used gear.

WERA? Also I’m trying really hard to drop weight this winter, and I have no idea what size.

I'm not small, I had good luck with Joe Rocket fitting. The 2 piece suit I have from them was $400. 

 

Or like you said, you could just drop weight and get something nicer... like I'm working on myself :p

100% in... little later in the year would be better for me as I'll be spending 10 days in May for my wedding.  So middle June or after would work for me.  The earlier I know the date the better too so I can plan all this vacation time --

<3  

For anyone who hasn't done this before, please do not hesitate to make this your first one!  So many OR people will do anything to help make your first track day the best it can be.  Also, from what I'm told, Mid-Ohio also is one of the best novice structures around for all different levels of riders.
