Join us April 29th, 2016 for our first-ever FRIDAY Track Day! This is a BMW Motorcycle only track day. Any year or model of BMW Motorcycle is welcome. What's even better is that this track day is only $150 - much less than your typical track day fee!
If you're feeling the need to shake off those winter cobwebs, work on your skills, or just take a day to twist the throttle on a closed course, please make your reservation ASAP for our second track day of the year: Friday, April 29th.
Enjoy a full day at the track at Canaan Motorsports Park in Canaan, NH. You'll be joined by many of your friends from MAX BMW as well as vintage BMW racers from TEAM MAX BMW.
Our track events are all about learning... not how fast you can go, or how many people you can pass. Riding well and having confidence in your bike are the goals we're after. We make track time affordable and accessible so all rider levels can safely explore the behavior of their equipment in a controlled environment. Beginners and 1st timers highly encouraged. Our rider coaches are there to help hone your skills and learn new ones!
The field will be split into two groups: a fast motorcycle group and a slow motorcycle group. The fast group is for advanced riders who have done many track days before or race. The slow group will be for beginner track day riders who have never done a track day or only a couple of track days. Limited passing will be allowed in the slow group. Groups will rotate every 20 minutes. We will have instructors on hand to answer questions and do lead/follow for beginners. That's a lot of riding for only $150. Space is limited, so sign up now! Online registration is open.
Bikes: This is a muffled event. 95 Db Max.
Passengers: Passengers are not allowed.
Preparation: You’ll need to start with a motorcycle that is in proper mechanical condition and has good tires. When you get to the track, remove your mirrors (you won’t need them) and any luggage or extra bodywork that could potentially fall off. Our friends at FIshtail Riding school (who we work with for our riding schools) have a good section on their website about preparing your bike for track day: https://www.fishtailridingschool.com/track-day-prep/

The Importance of Track Days:
Smart riders know that attending a track day is a worthwhile investment your riding career. Here’s why: every time we go out on the street on our motorcycles, we have a whole world of variables in front of us that we need to be aware of and manage. Road conditions, traffic, weather, sun angles, wildlife and just thoughts about where we are going and why all occupy space in our brain and do not allow us to fully concentrate on riding well. Track days remove these variables so you can work on your skills in a relaxed and fun environment. It’s a common misconception that track days are only for racers and high performance enthusiasts. The reality is that the majority of track day participants are regular riders of every ability on every kind of bike. Bottom line: you’ll have a great time and you’ll return to the street a much better rider.
