Or a riding group with a breakfast problem lol. Either way... it was always about the rides! We had some small rides for experienced riders, larger group rides where we'd have 20-30 bikes on a 200 mile ride through the canyons, BBQ's and meet and greets for members to get to know each other, and even did maintenance days and even organized new rider clinics.

Some of those first members are part of my track family. We all met through the passion of riding. Not the passion of acceptance and the by-law that you had to wear a vest and always have a knife on ya



What's that?

I'll think of you while I'm at Laguna Seca on Sunday
There's one next Sunday?

TrackDaz
Keigwins
SoCal Track Days
https://fastrackriders.info/
Let's Ride Trackdays
Home page
https://z2trackdays.com/ti/z2/index.html

And you can always rent leathers or a bike there: California Motorcycle Rentals for Track Days and Racing
OP... where in California are you?

Come out to a day with us sometime. Just ride out with some buddies to hang out for a bit and get a feel for what it's all about. I coach/control ride with Let's Ride Trackdays. We're pretty geared to the entry level track rider and have been a lot of people's first experience at the track. (Gotta promote my peeps!... oh... and if you read above... one of the people I met in that group I started years ago is one of the co-owners of this TD org now.... see how this stuff works??!?!?!)

If you're up north we're out at Laguna Seca on Sunday! Come out and check it out! Or... we're usually running out in Buttonwillow raceway near Bakersfield.



Come on... wouldn't you just love to get some track training from these dudes??!?!? We're super close
