Getting my checklist together for the Section8 trackday this weekend and had a couple of questions...

How much gas should I plan on taking with me ( 1 bike - 900ss stock )
Do I really need to buy a generator or does Gratten have those magical electric 'bushes' ?

Things I do have:
Freestanding canopy
front / rear stands
tool box on wheels
chairs
cooler w/ ice, fluids and other goodies ( no beer
)
extension cord
electrical air pump
pit bitch
shop towels
safety equipment
trailer to tow bike
masking tape
health insurance paid and will written ( GF gets it all )


Cheers -

any other tips are appreciated

GAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Unless of course, they have it at the track already. Then you're pretty much all set.

Fill your tank up before you get to the track and fill up a 5-gallon gas tank before you leave and you should be set for the day.

A bicycle pump works well and takes up little space

Re: 1st trackday and equipment needed (Capt. Home Slice)

Capt, it would seem you are moving home more that going to a track day


Other thing to take is your balls so you can get braver as the day goes on


Good luck fellas and enjoy it...oh and BTW...rubber side down
