  1. Well since we are in BC, we are limited to tracks around here for practicing the techniques we learned at the school. Looks like we might be able to go to ONE track day at the Ridge in May. We are also going to be attending the CSS in June.

    So the question I have is...as it will be our first track day (for me)  on our own bikes (a first), should we get some, if any, instruction there?

    Anybody wearing the Alpinestars Missile suit and airbag have any feedback on that system? I see they FINALLY announced a woman's version of the Tech-Air compatible suit. I'm giving that a serious look, seems like broken collarbones are a pretty common racing injury and I would prefer to keep mine intact. I had been looking at the Hit Air vests but didn't want to have to mess around with putting it over the leathers right before a race, or with the tether - seems like it would be too easy to forget to unclip yourself!

    BTW, does anyone know if Alpinestars has a showroom in SO CA that might have the women's suits in stock to try on? I'm not really sure of my size as I have been wearing custom suits, plus I wonder if the vest and back protector affect the size and fit of the suit.

    I am very interested to hear how you find the fit for women. I would rather not buy too many suits!

    On a side note, does anyone use a Leatt neck brace with their leathers? I am considering one of these too 

  3. I see July looks good as far as weather goes. I think we need to have a think about what we really want to do. We were thinking that even doing 2 separate days for 3&4 would be good too (after reading other posts). It is really too bad it would be too costly to bring our own bikes...would be amazing to drive our own vehicles as I am always looking for ways to improve my riding!
