tracybullard Posted December 11, 2013 Report Share Posted December 11, 2013 Hello, My name is Tracy and I am new here. I just finished my "Legal" paperwork for the March/April 2 day class at Sonoma Raceway. I have been riding a long time but took a lengthy sabbatical (15 years) Last May, I purchased a new 2013 BMW S1000RR. It's freaking AWESOME! I live in the SF Bay Area and am using it to commute from SF (San Francisco) to SJ (San Jose). Its 50 miles one way. I have racked up 15,000 miles on my little scooter and am on the very end of my second rear tire. I have done very little to it with the exception of adding HP adjustable rear-set and reverse shift linkage. I did put all the protective gear on it I could find for when my number is pulled and I shaved the front indicators using a custom indicator light that is incorporated into the BWM emblem on both sides of the bike! I am not going to lie, it took me much longer to get comfortable on the bike than I thought it would. Everyday I seem to learn something new on it and the local cagers keep me on my toes. With that in mind, I am 48 years old and not in particularly good shape, not fat, but no Greek god either. I have a little less than 4 months before my scheduled track days and was hoping some of you could give me some advice on how to make the most of my 2 days, with regard to educational material, specific exercising and that sort of thing. I have attached a picture of my lil scooter because I love showing it off! Thank you in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
