    Anyone have any advice for a "first time in 7 yrs" to the track rider?

    I'm thinking....
    Day before list of things to do.....

    Oil change
    remove mirrors
    remove rear light and plate assembly
    lube and adjust chain
    wash

    What to pack?

    Tools
    cooler for water, poweraid etc.
    air compressor
    quick up gazebo


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated....Will be trailering the bike to the track even though I'm half a mile as the crow flies from the track....

    I think you've got it covered with the exception of fuel, but there's a station about 30 seconds from the track for a fill. Be certain of your front caliper bolts and brake pads. If you're taping your headlights it's a good idea to unplug them. The heat reflection on some bikes is hard on the bulbs. Go ride the bike a few miles after the oil change so you can answer the question in tech truthfully, if asked. Check your coolant.

    Yup, fill the tank and bring a 5 gallon gas can and you're good to go. I usually pull the headlight and turn signal fuses as well. I'll be there. What group are you registered for?

    what do you guys do for oil change intervals? I am on 260 miles on my oil change which includes about 210 miles of my last track day. I disconnect the lights on my bike, but it is pretty risky as I ride my bike to the track!

    Alex, I have all the tools you'd need at the track to disconnect your lights. Just stop by my pits. I wouldn't think it'd be worth risking the ticket.

    Bring a cover of some kind in addition to a lockable box. Somebodies clothes got jacked from their pits today....hope it was a joke and they get them back but it doesn't look like it.

    Did you do the track day? First time I've ever heard of someone getting their stuff jacked. That's fucked up.

    I usually lock my truck and keep my keys hidden in my pit if I'm there by myself. I'm 200 group also and my gopro is coming along. Stop by and say hello. Black Pathfinder and white GSXR.
