Motorcycle Sportbike track day "Bike setup & Tech prep"
I put this together for a Motorcycle Trackday club I was teaching for a
couple years ago. During the time I was teaching I got a lot of phone calls
before the course asking me what kinds of things they need to look at on
their bikes before coming to the racetrack. This video tries to answer that
question in a timely manner. However, it does not address everything you
need, it only talks about your bike. A rider must also have undamaged
safety gear such a Snell approved helmet, full leathers, proper boots,
gauntlet gloves, a back protector, and a working brain. The last item is by
far the most important item in this equation.
Trackday Tips for Beginners
Information that I hope will help riders new to trackdays. I also forgot to
mention that some trackday organizations allow you to get a taste of what a
trackday is like by letting you ride in your street gear with a control
rider during the lunch break. Take advantage of this if you are unsure if
you want to do a trackday.
Another note: check your brakes before you go. The track will use up brake
pads in a way that the street almost never does.
