MN routes are typically going to be north or south of the metro. Many dip over to WI for better routes.



Thanks for the info, not sure I'm up for a track day quite yet... Still getting a feel for the extra 100hp I've acquired :rider:

If you can use your controls to get the bike moving, it's never too early for track days. Don't let fear of the unknown stop you. There are Beginner groups for a reason. Not everyone is out there slicing through corners. I highly recommend signing up for Road Closed Racing's H.E. class. It's geared specifically toward beginners that are new to riding or have not had any formal training. Track days are the best possible way to learn quickly and have more fun than you can imagine. I'm not trying to force you into it, but just trying to give you realistic ideas of track days.

What he said.

It is never too soon for track days. Nothing better to get the feel for your bike near the limits than seeing the exact same clean corner every minute or so. On the street you are getting new corners of unknown conditions for traction. It's a totally different challange; one I enjoy, but not the best situation for learning limits.

Well I can't argue with posts about "go ride more and faster".
