come off it mate you've been taking the piss for about 3 days so don't start gettin on your high horse......... go and patronise your novices.well said clankatank.
Boohoohoo! Now fuck off to the other thread where you and your clique'y instructor mates are pretending to not know eachother and bitch about eachothers riding and personal habits, cos were not interested in how tough it is for you.We pay our money for a decent service which some of the time we don't get, and to hear you slagging us off on a thread for suggesting how things could be improved really isn't helping your case or giving the impression of a caring and listening TDO.Oh, and put 240 riders on the road and I'm pretty sure all 240 will come back safe and sound. How many people commute on bikes every day with no fatalities? You've been reading too much propaganda from the goverment, police and Daily Mail matey.
Oh and REF to prices, this is something I was shown recently, not for Donnie I know and there a bit out of date but gives you an idea
Doing a trackday is like making love to a beautiful woman: you need to have a good close look at your ride, make sure she's not too unwieldy and then when she's warmed up, ride her hard and fast for a number of 20 minute sessions

and not being funny, but if people are dropping their bikes on cold tyres, and have been warned to warm their tyres, and still want to push on and risk a lob, they seem to be ideal candidates for warmers.
if you re-read my post you'll notice that i mentioned i have trouble getting my gear to the track - i already own HWW warmers, and harris stands. you tried carrying paddock stands on a motorbike? reasonably tricky....dont know what the fuck your point is about 'the hassle for the TDO'. the TDO are 'organisers', this is what they do, for money, as a job, a proffession, work undertaken for remunation. how much time do you think it takes for them to dish out 10-20 warmers? or just hire out stands etc
More like ideal candidates for a Darwin Award Well I'd quite like to turn up to a trackday and have a team of mechanics ready to prep. my bike and massage my shoulders and then be led out to the start of each session by a brolly dolly.But I don't have those facilities with me and it's only fairly recently I've started driving up with the bike on a trailer and my tools in the back of the car.You're saying the TDO is supposed to lay on 10-20 sets - what happens if more people wanted them? Where are all these tryre warmers supposed to be plugged in, or are they supposed to lay on generators for everyone too? Where are the TDOs supposed to store all this stuff? It's only FE - I think - that has the big wagons, isn't it?And not all TDOs do this for their profession: some do it not for profit to increase track time for people and to ride them themselves.
now you're talking! as long as its the brolly dolly giving me the rub, rather than you geez
i dont know if you're aware of this but i know of at least one organiser that provides them,
they could have arrangements with people selling parts, or the tyre guys etc.
one in particular has a larger market share in that respect
What's so difficult about building things up for your your first two or three laps to get the tyres up to temperature?It's not a race, after all...
I cannot believe how you lot keep slagging off tdo`s, If your that pissed off with them all start your own company and do it better,
No one has slagged you ofF you fucking mug,
240 riders don`t commute all together do they, I`ve had 5 mates killed on the road 1 of them 3 weeks back.
If you want to boo hoo me name your date and track and do it to my face you brave twat. none of the money you pay comes to us and like i said if your that unhappy start your own tdo or just spend the rest of your life hiding behind a computer, MUPPET
(can't say anymore or I might be illegally advertising)
You posted a collective slagging off aimed at everyone who's posted on this thread, which was supposed to be a discussion of ideas and opinions on how TDO's can improve themselves. Perhaps we should all shut up as everythings great on the other side of the fence according to you.I took offence as you've made no contribution to this thread yourself and are annoying everyone here with your posts on other threads.oh please, nor do 240 trackdayers go out on track all at once either.Threatening customers now, the shame. Please post something more constructive than "if you don't like it start your own TDO".
I can`t say it enough WE DON`T GET PAID
