NC Bike Track day

http://nccar.us/
http://www.teampromotion.com/tracks-we-ride/ncbike/

The itch to do a track day is getting worse and worse. So, I've been looking for a track that is not overly technical just to "pop the cherry."

Has anyone ran this one? What you think?

I've watched a couple videos, the track looks really wide. NOT MY VIDEO


I'm planning on going next season, I already have to much going on right now to add track prep'n the bike.

Thanks for any insight,
James

I did 4 track days with TPM at NCBIKE last year. Fun track, you'll have a blast.

Hey, the next time you think about heading out there, let me know and I'll try to make it too.


I've done a lot of training courses based off the California Superbike School when I was in the Marines. Now that I'm out, I'm really jonesin.:(

You should. I think you can run a few slow laps at lunch just to try it out.

You can with a leather jacket, gloves, over the ankle boots, and long pants.

Perhaps I'll see you out there next year, my RC is almost back together but I'm only running Shenny the rest of this year thanks to a terrible work schedule.

I've got a shenny/main combo on my radar for the fall. I'll post up if I do. Yeah, ncbike has a nice flow IMO and great grip.

Thanks. Yeah, my leathers split at the seam by my right knee. It's scraped pretty good, but otherwise I'm okay. Bike took some damage though... We'll see what the insurance company has to say about it. May have some top-line accessories coming on here soon...

Wish I had seen this post sooner. NCBike is a fun track with good grip (or so everyone says). Third time up will be this weekend. Way better than any ARTD or AMOS course (all the same techniques apply, just going at a MUCH faster pace).

Juicebox-I think I was up there the same weekend as you.

Cool. Yeah, the RC got totaled. I'm at nc bike on my new 03 R6. Running red group. Come by, I'm one of the first setups from the building!

I'll swing by after I establish my "site." On my (new to me) RC, hoping to get into Red today, currently only White.
