    Default Doing my 1st track day (PICS ADDED)

    Coming up Monday Sept 24th. It's a BMW Hosted track day and I'll be running my new RT. Should be a lot of fun and sharpen my riding skills.

    Will that be over at Grattan Raceway? Have done their, (Team Chicago) track days the last two years, what a great experince! You will simply love the time spent bonding with your bike.

    Have fun ride safe and learn a lot. I would love to get out there on a sport bike and ride the piss out of it, plus i think i would learn a lot. Too bad you cant rent a track bike for the day.

    Yes it is at Grattan. I don't think you have to have a BMW to participate. I believe it's open to anyone who wants to ride and has the proper gear. You can call BMW Motorcycles of Grand Rapids if you have any questions. Their number is (616) 530-6900

    Awesome. Enjoy the day. Hope the weather is great for you. You will learn more in 1 day than you would in a lifetime of riding on the street and what you learn directly translates to better safer riding on the street.

    That's awesome! Great for you! Take some pics. A bunch of BMWs rolling around the track should be a good entertainment.

    Default Couple pics of the RT on Track Day

    I'll post more pics of actual riding once I get them.2012-09-24_10-04-16_228.jpg2012-09-24_10-03-58_239.jpg2012-09-24_14-22-13_834.jpg

    I've never done anything like this before. It was such a great experience. It bonded me more with the bike, learned some limits I didn't know it had and gained confidence in my riding skills. I've never used so much of my tires before.
