Motocycle group track days 2012

Hi all

Starting now, dates are out for Anneau du Rhin. Free training days are as follows:

16 May
26 July
08 Aug
13 Sept

I'm hoping to make all 4 days. Cost is 290 CHF per day, but well worth it from this years experience.

Who else wants to come along.

Chris

Wait, we're a group? I thought we were a motorcycle gang?

Re: Motocycle group track days 2012

Please refrain from using "gang" when it comes to our happy little band. Too many negative conotations.

Prez :-)

Hey, Sorry to hi-jack your thread, but how do you go about insuring your bike for track days? I would like to do the same but for my car.

Thanks,

Ask your insurance provider, see if they do the cover, but as Colin said, here they don't as far as I know. UK and US do.

Colin, can just see you and the boys, down on the sea front, polishing all your chrome :-)

Wow, news to me. I had raced cars in the U.S and insurance was viod in any kind of off road or sport/racing event. All tracks required a signed waiver as to their liability. All insurances were viod... I know it also goes here when we go to Germany or Austria (Saltzburgring) to race (we also signed a form). A chance we take. Oh, also our death or personal insurance didn't cover racing...unless you ask for it..

It depends where you get your insurance from. Google comes up with links such as the following: http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/g...insurance.html

(and Chris - "gang" was tongue-in-cheek, the negative connotations were the joke! No worries, I know you're too old to be the violent rebel type... )

Lance, I thought you'd catch the humour when I signed off as Prez. Every gang has a president :-)

Re: Motocycle group track days 2012

Hi all

Was bored at work today, so have been working on a year plan, and as it has all the trackday dates on that we've found so far, thought I'd add it here. Track day dates with a ? questionmark are not confirmed as attending until we discuss when and where we exactly want to go.
Tracks are Anneau du Rhin, Bresse and Dijon.

Word doc in zip file.

Regards Chris

Re: Motocycle group track days 2012

Just a quick word to say if you were thinking of coming to the 16 May trackday, there is only 1 place left open, going quick.
