Thought I'd throw this into the mix.

I don't know peoples level/experience of trackdays. I am a noob having only wobbled round Cadwell on a cold and rainy day last September, chicken strips still intact, I know I know :019: . This seems like a more relaxed approach/atmosphere than normal trackdays in case anyone may be put off by the bigger bully boys with their bigger bully toys :008:.
Don't think you'll get enough interest to hold a street triple only day, and unfortunately I can't make the 675.cc one. I lurk there and my brother is a member so had already looked into it. Wish I could 'cos the noise alone would be erm, moist.
Thoughts?

Did a track day last september on my old firestorm at oulton,  only 30mins away for me,  i eas in the novice group,  and it was half full of supersports pro riders doing cheap tests,  even the instructor admitted that these pro riders do this as its cheaper than a test day,  but have to say to ride with those guys makes you realise what awesome nutters they are,  it was like being in a race,  and to have them overtake you on shell oils bend at twice your speed is amazing,  so a road bike only track day sounds great,  i am almost ready to hit the buy it now button

I like the idea of a novice road bike track day but the major additional expense of compulsory leathers makes it a no-go for me as I prefer staying with my textiles for everyday use.
