MSRH or MSRC? I've been to neither, but I'll be going to MSRH this year.

I've never seen the aerial before, but I have watched the YouTube vids and it never really has excited me. If TWS is truly closing, MSHR is only an hour from me and will be my closest.

Just watched some video, it's not very wide for sure and there's no runoff whatsoever.
Anything touching off that track anywhere and it's chunky dirt time.

I knew COTA would spoil me rotten.

Re: Texas Track Day Riders

Being from TX, I feel I can say this.

I guess it's been a Pet Peeve of mine, that others consider TX in the SW?
I say this b/c this is in the SW forum.

Tx is South
Arizona and southern Cali- SW
Geourgia, Fl- SE

Just saying

Re: Texas Track Day Riders

$500/day for COTA

Guess I'll wait for the "sale" when it goes down to $350-400

COTA is just too proud.

California Superbike school is on my xmas list, COTA is a clear $1000 more expensive than any other track. With that price difference I'd rather do Laguna Seca.

I do wish COTA wasnt so expensive, but it is what it is, an awesome track.
It was my first time, so I got the last one for 399.00.
I got an email showing the next COTA day, and they're advertising "COTA for Christmas" for 450.00.

I'm skipping that one, there will be a huge crowd. Hell, there were at least 60 riders in my group last Sunday.
I know they want to make profit and push their product, but at some point, it gets too crowded.

Re: Texas Track Day Riders

60 riders!!! Damn that is a lot, more than I thought.

So I guess the $450-500/day is not too much after all.

COTA is an amazing place, I had one of the coolest times of my life volunteering there for the MotoGP race this year and 100% plan on going back next year again.

I was at the "Save TWS" facebook page and a guy told me they are staying open through end of 2017. I'll be there too!
They are trying to keep it open now.

Re: Texas Track Day Riders

Roll Call!

Its getting warm out and track season is here. When and where will people be riding?

May 13 @ TWS will be my first time out since my get off last year. Bike is rebuilt, but a tad nervous about how it will perform since I will not have tested it at higher speeds.

Re: Texas Track Day Riders

Is anyone in DFW going to the RideSmart COTA track day on July 15?

Looking to pair up on the trip down there instead of renting a uhaul by myself.
