Ultimate MotorCycling/JETT Tuning Track Day @ Buttonwillow, Sept. 22nd, 2017

Hey guys and gals,

It's that time of year again! Ultimate Motorcycling Magazine and Jett Tuning have teamed up to put on our annual track day that. What's so special about our track day? Well, it gives the average motorcycle enthusiast the opportunity to try out some of the latest and greatest offerings from all corners of the motorcycle industry.

If you're in the market for an upgrade and want to make the most informed purchase possible, this is the track event to attend this year. Factory and dealer staff will be on hand to answer questions and help you get comfortable out on track.

Our track days are open to riders of all skill levels and we'll have staff on hand to ensure the safety of all participants. Never been on track before? The first two open sessions are dedicated to those that haven't had the opportunity to ride track, and we'll have instructors on hand to watch/ your riding. Advanced and Intermediate riders need not worry - you'll have dedicated sessions that allow for more aggressive riding to be done.

So far, we have the following test bikes confirmed:
Ducati Panigale 1299/959
Ducati Monster (et all)
Ducati SuperSport
Aprilia RSV4
Aprilia Tuono
Yamaha R1
Honda CBR1000RR SP
BMW S1000RR
BMW S1000XR
Triumph Street Triple 765
Suzuki GSX-R1000R
Suzuki GSX-R1000

Get your suspension tuned for FREE by GP Suspension! Any registered rider will have the opportunity to get a free set up by GP Suspension, who will have their qualified staff on hand to answer questions and help get you sorted out. They'll also be showcasing some of their wares and new drop-in solutions.

Sessions & Groups:
Our track days allow for maximum time in the saddle. Every hour there are three sessions: A (Advanced), B (Intermediate) and Open (open to all). That could allow you 40 minutes of track time per hour!

Space is limited and we keep our total number of registered riders far below that of a typical track day. If you want to ride in a relaxed atmosphere and have lots of open track to yourself, this is a great opportunity.

Instructors
This year, we're proud to have representatives from Yamaha Champions Riding School coming out to help any of our participants. Their friendly staff will be on hand to answer question and run laps with you - for no additional fee. If you've ever had questions about riding technique, now is your chance to get advice from some of the best instructors in the business.

Check out our full review of YCRS's Champ School, which will give you an idea of what they're all about.

Tires
You can't run a track day without good rubber. CT Racing/Pirelli will be at Buttonwillow, changing tires and making sure everyone is up to snuff before getting out on track. They'll be happy to throw on a fresh set of Supercorsa's should you need and they'll also be able to give you advice when it comes to tire pressures, as well as tire wear.

Gear
We'll also have Racer Gloves and Alpinestars on hand, who will be showing off their latest wares. Should you need any gear or if you're interested in picking up some new duds, they'll be ready to cut some serious deals. Anyone interested in specifics - please send an e-mail so we can organize a purchase.

Price
$250 Spots are limited, so register now.

Have any questions?
Drop a comment in the thread, shoot us an e-mail or give us a call - we'll be happy to answer any concerns you might have.

Thank you!

Sadly, no. This date worked best for the factory/dealer support representatives. Come ride on Friday then jam down to Chuckwalla!

Signed up for this in B group. Attended last year and it was well run and a great way to demo multiple bikes on track. Let me know if anyone wants to split travel expenses to-from Buttonwillow?

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in

Is this a bring your own bike and maybe get some saddle time on some demos depending on the waitlist, or come without a bike and ride demos all day type of thing?

It is definitely encouraged that you bring your own bike, just so you can go and get comfortable on track and have something to ride while waiting for a demo unit, but we'll have a fair amount of bikes available for test.

The short answer is there is no "maybe" you'll get some seat time, you absolutely will. Keep in mind that we're running three sessions, two of which you'll be able to ride in and riders are called in after every session.

The other advantage to bringing your own bike is that you'll be able to take advantage of GP Suspension, who will be doing free set ups. If you're not happy with your suspension set up or you just want to get the ear of a professional, it would be worth loading your own machine up.

My track bike isn't in running condition and I highly doubt it'll be ready by the end of Sept, that's why I was asking. I'm more than happy to warm up on a small non-flagship bike.

Ah, I see. Having your own bike isn't a requirement but to ensure you get the most out of the day, it's a good idea.
