For years track days have been popular activities for European motorcyclists. In recent years it has become a very popular activity in the U.S. as well. As traffic laws become increasingly draconian, roads become increasingly congested, and motorcycles become increasingly capable, more people are taking their bikes to race tracks. Currently there are a number of organizations catering to people who attend track days. But many people who want to ride on racetracks dont attend track days because they dont know how to prepare themselves or their motorcycles for the racetrack. This book will provide tell them everything they need to know to hit the racetrack: how to prepare their motorcycles, how to find organizations that sponsor track days, where to attend track days, specific information for the major racetracks in the United States, information on track schools around the country, and much, much more.About the AuthorKent Larson, an accomplished racer and a control rider for NESBA, one of the countrys leading track day organizations, contributed the chapter on track days to our high performance riding book Total Control.
