My age...that's the takeaway from that eh?  Lol.    Yeah Eric, I have 3 grandkids (via my wife) about the same age as your girls and a 21 yr old daughter of my own (no kids there yet, just gray hairs.). 

Levi, well, buckle in buddy.  You're next.

Kids. 

Can't get no respect round here.  or whatever it was that Rodney Dangerfield said.

Track time is so worth while.  I raced for years in vintage classes and then had fun as a race school instructor with Team Chicago and then retired again and then we got a tiny little RS125 and had a blast at open practice days and when I build a race bike, I try it out and set it set up properly at the track, but havn't done that for a while.

Back to the point, leather suits are not too bad in price unless you want the latest Dainese with air bags.  You might think about a two piece so you can take the jacket off when it's hot and you are standing around.

I've been casually looking for a good used track suit in wookie size that would fit me.
Might be easier to kill a cow and wear the carcass :P

And I'll join the consensus, trackdays are about as much fun as you can have with clothes on. Do It!! You won't be disappointed ;)
It's been a few years, but I've done a couple with the DS7, and more than I can count with the Hayabusa. Getting the itch to run the DS7 again though.



Check into your local trackday organizations. The one I ran with over here had loaner suits for those who wanted to get their feet wet without the initial cost outlay. There's another company here who rent out 250 Ninjas as well as suits for trackdays.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

A wookie on a ninja 250. Haha I'd pay to watch that.

So my guy at the HD shop hooked me up yesterday.  I wasn't looking but I've wanted one for quite awhile.  This came up as a buddy to buddy deal so there was no way I was going to pass on it.  1986 Harley Davidson FXR Lowrider.   I'll sort it out over the next few months into a rider.

Skydiving, the biggest rush I ever had. Leapt out of a perfectly decent plane somewhere over Australia. Everyone needs to do that at least once. And u got to do it for a job. Good man
