I am so motivated to go to track school, do track time. Everyone I have ridden with has inspired me. Hitman123, PrestonK, Kali636, Fishbowl, Shortyx5, Kk2Hernandez, armlessleg, Socal636 ,BassAgent, JPerez, and many others. I purchased a used suit. Never worn supposedly. However. I will de-nut sack it. Hahaha. I have my NEW boots and I am going to sign up for some track school/courses. Just warning you all. Look out for Alex. Once I have my sight set. Nothing stops me. Again. I thank you all for motivating me. I thrive off the information placed before me here. With all that said, I will pass you at the track with grace and dignity. :)

< Sorry, I talk a lot of shit, but I do not disappoint >

Sincerely,
Alex

Well here comes your next addiction. You will need to do porn on the side to pay for it
LOL. I can't do porn, it's too long that is why it was a joke. So I am in the service business been a tech, have all the toys. :)

ps: Track days are cheaper than a GF or Wife. That is a fact. :)

Riding is an art, and a science. Read TOTW2 and attend CSS. Do the trackdays and have fun. There are other ways to do it, but this is a great way to start.
Start from the beginning and read
TOTW
TOTW2
Soft Science

there are other very good books out there as well

But yes attending CSS is a must

Hey brother I have the book TOTW2 and I have watched the dvd about 20 times. It is a start. However nothing beats hands on, for me anyways.

Take level 1, you will learn more. With a coach behind you, and step by step exercises, you will be faster, but more importantly much more in control.

So this is the suit I purchased. After taking everyone's advice here ( and thank you all very much, much appreciate the info, help and so on ) I figured it would be smarter to not go balls out on a brand new suit. But get a used on and spend the other doe on class, track day stuff and so on. Thanks again everyone that is guiding me on this exciting journey. :)

1. Ya'll are dating the wrong women.

2. Since ya'll are dating the wrong women, as the forum authority on all things wise, responsible (and sarcastic :devious) I absolutely agree with choosing to do track days in lieu of dating. :)


*Cheesy commercial voice*

In clinical trials, riders who attend track days have reported an increased quality of life and appreciation for riding sportbikes to the best of their ability in a closed environment. 95% of respondents reported increased libido, and healthier life choices such as - decreased desire to ride a sport bike at 100% on the streets, decreased desire to ride with no gear, decreased desire to give a shit about how cool they look, decreased desire to attend bike nights and other trivial bureaucratic social functions, increased overall life happiness.

*cue the slow-mo visual of fully suited rider frolicking in an "in-field" of daisies after a minor lowside in which he survives unscathed because he didn't hit a rock wall or another car and was fully geared*

However, before choosing to do track days, consult your bank account or financial advisor to determine which track days are right for you. Track days are not right for everyone so consult your physician if you experience any of the following symptoms after attending a track day event:

*cue the visual of two riders draggin' knee through a tight corner before throttling out*

Continued desire to ride on the street
Disinterest in track day events
Interest in riding at 100% of your ability on the streets

Side effects of track days may include:
Dry mouth
Nervousness
Acute sleep loss prior to track day events
Decreased expendable person income
Increased overtime to fund track days
Increased interest in racing
Increased moodiness or depression during track day "off season"

Increased amounts of adrenaline released into the system may effect your ability to operate a motor vehicle.

Do not do track days if you are pregnant or nursing.

hahaha, nice write up MoM

My quote was from a movie. "I have a cheap ass wife" so my addictions are still intact.

Congrats on the learning curve. Enjoy

There is absolutely nothing wrong with dating the wrong women. You just have to make sure that you marry the right one.
