not this week but i do have a question regarding this track, especially since i'm in pittsburgh...
what's the procedure like to get on the track? ie, costs, constraints, tech, etc... my bike isn't set up for track with safety wire, fluid retention fairing, i still have lights/horn/etc... it's basically a modded street bike. can i just tape off the lenses and hop on the track for a fee, and if so how much?
i've seen oodles and scads (that's a highly technical quantity there... ) of articles lately since mike seate's been getting bylines in motor cyclist about track days etc and most of the ones he talks about are STT and a few of them have been up at beaverun.
a buddy of mine and i have been talking about this for a couple years, but we don't want to show up and get blocked from the track like a couple dorks cuz we didn't do something to the bikes that we should have known about. is there a "run whatcha brung" session or something so we could get out there, rip it up, and make sure it's actually something we want to sink more time/ effort/ money into?
...stupid question, i know we will... but i don't want to show up at the track with a couple bikes that get DQ'd in tech before we even pull them off the trailer.
thanks in advance and have fun.
