Probably should use warmers but 2 warm up laps on a hot day and he should be okay...

Come on, I don't ride dangerously. You don't have to say any more. I was just wanted to see if you could keep pace. I don't care what you ride. Don't make this something that it is not. It's really easy to see if someone has the skills to hang. You don't have to talk anymore shit to save face. If you want to meet up and have a friendly ride/race, whatever you want to call it. Let's do it.

Yeah, but then I need warmers (199 - 399$) and a decent generator ( 500 - ∞ $). I think I might risk it.

Riding like it's a race and making unsafe/aggressive passes will get you pulled off the track at every TDP I know of.
You're right, it is easy.

When you crash in your first 2-3 laps, just remember....that sbk1198 dude on the forum told you so!

And I'd bet the damage will be more than the cost of warmers and a generator. But you guys don't have outlets there that you can plug into? I don't like to go to tracks that don't have power for that reason. I don't have a generator either, although it's on my list to get. Just need more money lol

Laguna is an awesome track, but it being owned by the county has some serous drawbacks, one being no power unless you rent a garage. I'm just thankful that there are still racing series coming over or else they wouldn't resurface and use grippy paint and all that "luxury" stuff. The track is in AWESOME conditions, but the rest of it is just a park, some benches and portable buildings.

I offered him my generator and a front tire warmer for $130. No excuse for money! Haha

How much does it cost to rent a garage? From what I've seen at other tracks that have garages, the prices are very reasonable if you split it with a few others. And they always include power. At the track I went to a few weeks ago, garage rental is $100, and we split that in 4. $25 a day for power, shade and a roof over your head is well worth it IMO.

I think it's around 300$ to rent a garage. . . and @Felixthecat doesn't ride here often so I don't want to get stuck with the bill
