This episode gives me the chance to answer an email from a listener who is looking to buy his first motorcycle and is looking for advice on how much to spend on his motorcycle gear. I take this opportunity to answer his question by discussing all the things I have learned recently about high end gear that is suitable for track riding, as I start preparing myself to start riding on the track in 2020. I cover the fact that I am facing the same dilemma that he is…how much do I spend? I discuss what I am learning about helmets, boots and track suits, and the approach I am taking to move ahead and decide what to buy. I also mention that I have decided that before I start getting very involved in doing track days, I first want to improve my riding skills, and learn how to ride properly on the track, by taking the type of training offered by the California Superbike School and Total Control Training.

This episode starts out with me reading the new mission statement for my podcast, and then I look back over the podcast since its inception by reading the list of past episode titles, and more importantly commenting on and giving my thoughts about each episode, what was significant about them, what they meant to me, and any updates I have on the topics they covered. If you have not listened to the back catalog of episodes this is a great way for you to find out which ones you missed that you might be interested in. Then you can queue them up to listen to in your favorite podcast app. Since the Thanksgiving holiday is approaching I thought it would also be appropriate to give thanks and talk about all of the people that I am thankful for regarding the sport of motorcycling that you and I love so much. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This episode features a chat with Dan Netting, entrepreneur, and founder of Life at Lean and The Track Academy. After having a couple of bad experiences on the track, including injuring himself in two crashes, and in the process wrecking two bikes, Dan decided to become a dedicated student of riding on the track and educated himself to become a very safe, talented track day rider, and now devotes his time to helping other track day enthusiasts accomplish the same things that he did. I also give some listener shout-outs and share some tips I've developed on riding more comfortably on long stints on weekend trips.
