i have been riding for a year and 3 months and finally want to do a track day and feel like im ready, but i do have a couple of questions and conserns. 1) i live in So. Cal (San Diego) area and dont no the first step 2) never done a track day whats teh first steps to take? 3) how much is a typical track day and what should i have as a budget 4) i have a 16 street triple Rx, would this be fine for the track? 5) i have about 3xx miles on the bike, how many miles should i wait to do a track day? 6) and last question i have super corsas on the street triple which i can feel are amazing tires, however i do a lot of commuting and once these run out of tred thinking of switching to metzeler m7 rr tires, would these be ok on the track?
1/2) Look around online (like here!) and ask about a good track day organization. On the east coast there's several good ones, including N2, which are fantastic and built for new people. Not sure about out west personally. Make sure your bike is in good operating condition! Safety is the first priority. Chain, tires, brakes, oil plug and filter secure, no notches turning the bars, etc.
3) Price will depend on your organization and track. Around 175-210 is in the ballpark.
4) Great bike for the track.
5) no set mileage. You should be able to control the bike well, but no one starts as an expert. Again, the right organization will make it easy.
6) the stock tires will be plenty good for your first day as long as they're not squared off or worn too much.
