i didn't make it to the dragon unfortunately.....that's why I am determined to go to Summit.

Anyone take an MV to the track and had to take the mirrors off? simple/easy?

This track day is with Nesba so I had to pay $75 annual Nesba membership fee and the track day is $185. It's the beginners program and entails classes as well. It's been years since I have been on the track so I am starting at this point.

I am sure it would be less than a week if you spent 3 or 4 solid days over at Truman!

Solo, thanks for letting me know about the $'s, gives me a good idea of where to start. did you get your bike track prepped, or do you do that once you get to the track?

I am going to do as much as possible before the track....the level I am taking I don't need to do safety wiring....

Style....I dont think you need to worry about skill level....i keep getting PM's from my other forum..."dude I saw u gunnrunning on 495 like crazy" me: "wtf are you talking about?" Summary: must be Style!

i have been on the beltway with Style and i can tell you for a fact that it was probably him driving at a slightly higher rate of speed than the speed limit listed, coupled with a few lane changes from time to time!! Good times!
