I am sitting here talking to my boss as we speank. He and I are possibly interested in getting on to the track soon. He dosent have a sport bike only touring. He is curious what tracks if any rent out bikes. At what price and how long of intervals are the track sessions. I'm assuming we are both "C" riders because we have no track days under are belts. If any can give info I'd appriciate it.

I doubt they rent bikes out, but you guys can take turns on your bike. Or have him trade the cruiser in for a rocket:word:

There are places that rent bikes I just don't remember. Plus I'd rather pay a little more and still fell good that my bike is in one piece, if I were to go down, haha.

Thank you I am actually on thier site right now, just checked back in to see if there was anything new. The only thing I don't like is a $2500 deposit for the bike, I'm broke, lol can't afford that. I'm going to have to save up. I need to buy leathers, boots and new gloves. No matter the route I go this is costly, lol.

Your more then half way there, I gotta get a bike that's not 30 years old and then the rest of the stuff... But reading about everyone hitting the track has inspired me to set that goal for myself!!! But first I got to get my bike back on the frigin road... Waiting for parts from Japan...

I havent updated my Profile, my buddy is now the proud owner of my 6er. I would rather use a rental bike, if it gets abused I'm not as consious about it and thinking im messing up my bike. It will be my boss and my 1st track day, I'd fell more comfortable on a 600 rather than my R1.

I'm not 100% on this but if you wreck a rental bike, it's coming out of your pocket.. so might as well ride yours

Yea, I'm looking into that to see how that works. I've never had to ask but if you wreck your bike on the track your insurance should still cover it right?

from what I was told, if you tell them that you were attending a enrichment course/class when you wreck, they'll cover it..just dont say anything about racing or time trial..but I know a few guys that wrecked at the track and told the ins. that they wrecked up in the hills, ins. covered it

Really you could say that if you had $2,500 bucks to put down as a deposit and not worry about it if you lost it then why not find a bike on craigslist or somewhere which you can dedicate that bike just to the track? Save up a little bit more and there you go a track bike that you wouldn't have to "worry" about.. Besides it sounds like your almost planning on wrecking.... If I where in your shoes I would just go out there with what you got... Give it a whirl and not push yourself so hard that your going to wreck... Granted accidents happen but it has been said there are plenty of guys on here that would help you get the bike up if you laid it down..:word:

I am not planning on falling but I'd just like to have that area covered just incase. I highly doubt I'd fall but better thought out than not.

The Track Club has a vendor that rents bikes at the track here is a link http://www.motogio.com/store/home.php?cat=315. He is a great guy and his bikes are usually well prepped.

I hear these 2fiddy's are a hoot. These are race bikes so they're designed for minimal damgage if they hit the pavement. The guy is chasing the racer market and they created a new wsmc class that folks are having a lot of fun with. But I'm sure he'd consider renting for a track day.;)

Lying to the insurance company is not a good idea. :rolleyes:

Check your policy, most will insure you as long as you are not being timed or in a race. Track days are not considered racing.

Yeah, make sure you check. Some will, some won't cover it.
