Motorcycle Track Days

For any rider who would like to improve their riding, learn more about their bike, or simply have a ton of fun, a track day can be the best day ever on their motorcycle. 

There are several organizations in New England who hold regular track days and each has it's own style. You can generally visit the track during a track day and watch for no cost. Contact the hosting organization and let them know you're coming to check out their program: I'm sure they will welcome you.

Beware though: track day riding is addictive. Save your vacations days and don't piss off the boss -- you're going need plenty of time off to feed your Jones.

Why Do A Track Day?

This is a special guest post from Dan Netting of Bike Track Days Hub

Track Days: NOT Just for Lap Time Chasers

Utter the words ‘Track’ and ‘Day’ to a large majority of riders who aren’t straddling the latest crouch rocket and their thoughts will likely conjure up images of over excited, one-piece donning race rep riders that are merely out to rip through the next corner as fast as they can.

I’m not going to lie, some of the track day crowd do indeed fall into this ego fuelled, Grand Prix wannabe stereotype (who can be easily spotted), but to think that they’re the only type of rider welcome in the track day paddock is just plain wrong.

It is my firm belief that there is an awful lot to be gained from heading out onto a race circuit, regardless of the bike you ride.

Throughout my now substantial experience doing track days around Britain’s best racing circuits, I’ve seen a very wide array of motorcycles out there.

From small 125 learner bikes, to sit up and beg nakeds, long distance adventurers, and idolised motorcycle classics. Heck, I’ve even seen Harley riders venture onto the track once or twice, and they were going well too!

Here are a few reasons why I feel every rider should venture out to the track at least once in their motorcycling lives.
