    Bought a Race Bike, Whats Next????

    I just bought a CL 350 race bike to run in USCRA formula CB. After that I really know nothing about what I need to do. I have only seen one race, beside participating in the moto Giro.

    Any advice on anything appreciated. I need to know about schools, safty gear, just about everything.

    Thanks

    you could try here i s'pose. carl took over the hawk school. other people here probably know more about it.

    common sense should dictate the rest. good boots, leathers, gloves, and a good helmet. the uscra rule book spells it out. race-uscra.com go to school, get your license, then youre pretty much ready to race with any club around. oh yeah, get ready to have alot of fun.

    jeff,

    you may be the only person to actually have a uscra rulebook. does this mean i have to start following the rules now that i know this club actually has some?

    texy

    p.s.- jack, when you are ready, the wankers will appear.

    You didn't see the section that applied to the wearing of undergarments outside of your leathers!?

    JackC - You from NY (State)? I am in the same boat. After watching Tim and Alex (the other Wankers) have all the fun I had to jump into the mix. I have a race prepped cb350 that I am going over with a fine tooth comb this winter and plan on taking the hawk school in Spring and racing USCRA. I've been riding since a young pup, but never road-raced a bike on a track in my life. My goal is to lap Alex first year out(sorry Alex). Tim T. ("El Constant Gardener")is the fast Wanker from Westtown NY. The aforementioned Alex "the Dominican" or ("JP weld") is located in NYC and is coming into his own....just watch your tool box. I am the upstate representative of the Wankers - Pete or ("Yell'er") (Long story to be told over a beer at the track). I guess I have probationary status until after my first race. :-)

    Long live the Wankers!

    Pete

    Pete,

    Yes, I am from Up State NY, Oneonta to be exact. Let me know where you are and maybe we could compare notes. Seems like a lot to learn, but these guys are very helpful. I know nothing about the Wankers, should I?

    The Hawk School is gone. Carl Mcallister bought it now expert 101. I am about the same as you--been riding since 1966, but never on a track. I realize I know NOTHING, so I am starting out right.

    Jack
