NTNOA Track Day - Monday, March 14th

The NTNOA is pleased to announce a subsidized Riders School to help riders improve their riding skills. It is important for all members to get track time to improve safety on the road. Therefore, cost for the day will only be $100.00 per participant. If interested in participating contact trackday@ntnoa.org.  Signup now!

You get the opportunity to ride on a racetrack at your own pace and see the same corners over and over again during the day. It is nice to ride on a "street" with nothing coming the other way and no curbs or trees to get in the way.

The NTNOA has done this before and Eurosport have done this a lot. We know that people who have never been to the track before will feel nervous but there is really no need to be. Everyone in the club needs to improve their skills which convert to more fun and increased safety when riding on the public roads.

Can you ride a motorcycle? Then you can do a track day – There are no rules that say you have to be Valentino Rossi to be able to ride your bike on the track. If you can competently ride a bike on the road (don’t mistake competently, for fast) then you will love riding on the track. No One is there to smash lap records, most people just want to turn up and enjoy their machine and stretch its legs a little, enjoying themselves in the process.

You’re probably not the oldest – You may well consider yourself old, but I’m sure there are older people doing bike track days.

There’s plenty of help on the day – Another thing worth remembering is that there are instructors there all day, on hand to give you any help you may need, from free on track tuition to general advice about your bike or your riding. If you’re at all concerned about not being able to navigate the track properly it is well worth grabbing one of the instructors so they can take you round the track at a reasonable pace and show you the correct lines and how to position yourself on track.

To summarize, there’s no reason why your age should prevent you from getting involved with track days. As they say, age is just a number and if you can throw a leg over a motorcycle and ride it, you’re welcome on track.

So in closing, thinking you’re too old is not a valid excuse not to try track days. If you think you’re too old, you’re not, so get your leathers on and get out on the track with us. I’ll guarantee you you’ll wish you made the decision years ago.

We look forward to seeing you there and remember the more you think that you would be nervous of coming the more you really need to come and spend a day having fun and learning.
