    This, I've spent at least £1500 on 8 track days this year, and with travelling expenses it's probably more like £2K, that's without buying a bike and no crashes (so far)

    Get some miles in on the bike first, it can't do any harm to do those courses but you can't beat experience!

    I just gotta get out there and find some locals I guess. All the old skool bikers have their groups and donít seem to go to meets as often. Must admit Iím looking forward to hooking up the Sena communication headset and linking up with others.

    Bikesafe is always a good idea for those with little experience and will improve your riding

    I hate meets, went to local one last week for the first time and remembered why i avoided standing about in a car park with people i didnt know .... much better to be out riding

    Well done on the pass.

    Defo look into a track day or 10. Top fun. Just remember you ain't Marquez and have fun. Pity you've missed peak summer as Snetterton do track evenings for about 45 quid in summer. You get a decent number of sessions and don't need to be at the track for 7.30am.

    Re meets/groups it's a difficult one. I've met up with a few in my time and some I've hated, others like the old VD SM Essex rides were Ace, as were some of the late night rides into the West End from the Ace with some of the LondonBikers lot. As time went on though I preferred riding with those I trusted in smaller numbers as had too many moments with bigger meets. Most of us are too spread out to meet. LondonBikers used to be good for meets as it was regular and at a central location esp the Ace on Friday nights. But it was mixed. I tend to ride alone 99% of the time now and only miss folks when I stop for coffee. Only done 1 ride with my Bro this year, 1 with my Dad and 1 with my neighbour. Pity as had some epic rides with my little Bro over the years, bit lary without getting stupid
