    Good thread, but why would you not start it out by filling in your information?

    aprilia rsvr. Gonna run A, B, HWT and F1. Will start at Tally coming up but doubt the bike will be ready by then.

    It would be smarter & cheaper to start to start on something smaller like an ex250/500 or an SV. Do you have any track experience?

    Yes, it will make you faster in the long run plus it's cheaper :up:

    Other liter bikes will eat you alive. Smaller is better when starting out.

    Hey guys. Got my Prov. Novice at the end of last year.

    Ive got a little FZR600, probably going to run V6 HW, V7 HW and V7MW so I can get out there for more than one race. I plan on going to Summit in April, hoping to go to Mid Ohio and Ill definitely be at Beaverun & Nelson Ledges because they are a very short drive for me.

    Cant WAIT

    Thinking about getting my provisional license at VIR in March but definitely this year. Mid-Atlantic region. Will run my 06 zx6. Been strictly a track rider for a couple years.

    What's the average temp for VIR early March?

    I plan on getting my provisional at VIR in March as well. Are you going to do the Race School on Saturday if go? Looking to run an R6, C SS/SB Northeast. I'm out of Frederick, let me know if you're interested in trailering down together to share costs. :up:

    I was lookiing at getting my prov at VIR also. I have my certificate so I don't need to go to the school. If you guys go let me know. I am a little further west. I had ruled it out earlier, scared of getting all the way down there and the weather sucking. However in the company of two other rookies it may be worth it. Regardless I will be at summit in April.

    I started on an 06R1. It ended disasterously, but I'm an idiot...:crackup:
    Be safe and have fun.:up:

    I'm trying to remember if I filled them out before I went or if I filled them out at the Ed Bargy school the Friday before...
    I'm thinking you can fill them out when you get there.
