I went to my first track day after about 1100 miles and a month after my MSF course. Albeit I was 35 and had a little more restraint than when I was 16 to ride within my limits on the track.

Comfort with the controls is a good gage. If you aren't at slow speeds you won't be any more comfy going fast and it will only make your survival reactions stick out more and increase the chance of touching a clip-on to the ground much greater. THe parking lot and practicing the MSF drills will helps this a lot :2cents:

Check this link out and look at the different organizations FAQ and bike prep pages.

This will give you a good amount of info on what you have to do and what you should or might consider doing.

I highly recommend STT as a great place to get started. They will emphasize that you have to ride within your limits. And there is plenty of room for fast guys even in the novice group.

Hope this helps.
