RCB Rider Skills Improvement Day – Monday, June 18
Whether you commute every day, enjoy touring, or taking a leisurely day ride around town, it’s time for a riding class. RCB has made arrangements with Fun Track Dayz for RCB members to participate in its track day at a $50 plus discount on Monday, June 18, 2018, at Thunderhill Raceway Park. The full east course will be open. The track is an environment that offers:
Debris free asphalt;
Corner workers who notify riders of safety hazards;
Runoff areas - no cliffs, rock walls, curbs, telephone poles, guardrails, or trees;
No on-coming traffic or dangerous cross-traffic; and
No speeding tickets.
You will not have to think about anyone using a mobile phone, applying makeup, shaving, texting, eating, or fighting with their kids or spouse while on the track.
Basic Rider Requirements:
Minimum Age: Check directly with Fun Track Dayz.
Motorcycle License: You must have a valid driver's license with a motorcycle endorsement.
Insurance: You ride at your own risk. RCB does not supply insurance for you or your bike.
Medical Insurance: You are required to keep proof of medical insurance coverage with you.
Motorcycle Insurance & Accident Costs: In the event of an accident, you are fully responsible for all costs and potential liability, including any medical cost, transportation, or other costs of any kind (we can't list everything). Please be prepared, act responsibly, and take precautions for yourself and others.
Signed Waivers: When you arrive for registration, you must sign a release of liability.
Proper Riding Gear: Common sense and Fun Track Dayz require proper riding gear. Fun Track Dayz will waive its full leather race suit requirement for RCB members and allow an undamaged DOT approved full face helmet with face shield; a two-piece leather suit that zips together, or full zip style Cordura (nylon) one-piece (Aerostich), or two piece Cordura zip-together fully armored (BMW, Klim) motorcycle suits are acceptable; above the ankle, motorcycle-specific boots; and motorcycle specific gauntlet style gloves are required. CE approved (or similar) body armor, back protector & ear plugs are strongly recommended.
Bike Preparation: Tires and brakes should be in new or nearly new condition. There can be no evidence of coolant or oil leaks. Taping wheel weights is required, and duct tape works well. Tape over all lenses, and remove mirrors. Blue painters tape works best, and doesn't leave residue. No light should be visible, or bleed through tape. Tape over the speedometer. The reason for taping is to eliminate distractions to you and your fellow riders. By reducing distractions, you can focus on what is important!
Cost: RCB Members $100.00 per participant up to May 6, 2018. Participation fee must be RECEIVED by RCB via payment on the RCB web site ( rivercitybeeners.wildapricot.org ) by May 6 to obtain the discounted fee. RCB will not provide refunds, but you are welcome to transfer your place to another member provided you do not charge more for the place. After May 6 you must sign up directly with Fun Track Dayz at its regular price.
