    New Guy On the Block


    Hello everyone and thanks for having me. This year has been my first year riding and I ride a 06 GSXR 600. I was given the name Crash Bandicoot by TimmyDuck since I managed to low side my bike in the middle of the summer. Lesson learned: dont give it 110% on a road where there is gravel and debris (I know I was being an idiot). Got the bike back up and running and am looking to get into riding on the track next year instead of riding like Rossi on the roads. Dont have much experience so looking forwards to learning from the experienced riders here. Live in CT and hoping to ride up at NH motor speedway starting in the spring.

    Welcome!

    There are other places to ride on the track closer to you as well.

    Thompson Motorsports Park is in CT and Palmer Motorsports Park is right over the border in MA.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Like Ive said I dont know too much about the track world so info like this is helpful. Ill be asking more questions about this later on and Ill be asking on the track forums. Dont have any gear yet and still need to get the bike ready but have been doing lots of research.

    Welcome new guy. It’s mostly massholes up in here, but there’s a handful of us CT folks.
    What’s your height/weight? I’ve got some gear I’ll be looking to unload in the nearish future.
