PREPARE FOR OPTIMUM EXHILARATION, FUN!
Timely arrival to the track on your event date with advanced motorcycle maintenance and rider preparation helps assure the best track experience opportunity for you. As reference, we put together a Riders Packet that outlines the requirements for both machine and rider. For more detail on Technical and Gear requirements, please read the Rider Packet.
Plenty of rest the night before and hydration helps riders with the enduring aspects of track riding leading into the event. Riders should expect based on the track sessions can be anywhere from 6-8 each day for their respective group.
MOTORCYCLE PREPARATION - TECHNICAL INSPECTION
As a general rule of thumb, if your street going motorcycle is properly maintained, currently licensed in conformance to your state's DOT rules, regulations, it should be fine to participate in a Motovid.com event. However, due to the nature of the riding environment and the impact on your motorcycle, it is advised that standard maintenance is performed prior to participation. Tires should have a lot of available tread, brakes should be lightly used or new. All riders should read the Rider Packet for more detail.
TRACK DAY ESSENTIALS
Healthy snacks and liquids are essential throughout the day. Consider your time on track as enduring as any cardio or gym exercise routine. Replenishing fluids is key in between sessions to stay hydrated and focused as the day progresses. Minimally, riders should bring ample water.
GETTING TO THE TRACK
Certainly, participants can use their street legal motorcycles as their track bikes, ride directly to the track for their events and participate in an All Levels Motorcycle Track Day event, then ride home. Over the years, many riders have ridden directly to the track, especially on their first endeavor with track days. However, THIS IS NOT RECOMMENDED! If at all possible, riders should consider using a trailer/tow vehicle or coordinate with riding friends for other arrangements. This not only allows for the ability to bring support items to increase the quality of experience but also the ability conserve energy leading into your track day event and ease of travel home after an enduring day at the race track.
