    Finally got to take out my TT500 for the first time since I bought it almost a year ago. I don’t know what I’m doing really and was the only one on the track so I couldn’t ask anyone for tips but still fun. Felt like I got faster towards the end.

    Flat rack racing is a real art form. Great looking TT500.

    Very cool! Thanks for posting these images. I’ve always wanted to try this. The closest I ever came was doing a few laps at Ken Maley’s track in Corona Ca. on a speedway bike years ago. I can report that it was WAY harder than it looked! I imagine that Flat Track is similarly difficult.

    My wife and I went to the American Supercamp school a few years ago and it was a blast. Worth checking out if you want some instruction. Congrats for getting out on the track!
