Hell yeah, man! I did the same thing you did. Learn as much as possible on the streets and apply it to the track, then you can modify and learn new stuff. Good sh*t.

I just got enough scratch together for the CA Superbike School out there in August. Very excited.

I've checked out the STT event a couple of times down at Putnam here in IN and they appear to have their stuff together. Enjoy

I would suggest you order underarmor if you want to stay warm.
They make Cold Gear, that is very tight and fits great under leathers. and keeps you warm
