The bike should have;
GOOD tyres, don’t skimp on the rubber. Get some good advice on the best tyres and appropriate pressures for your bike.
Good chain and sprockets.
Be at least roadworthy, nobody will be impressed if you start leaking oil all over the track or have bits falling off your bike, it can be real easy to become unpopular.
Some ride/coaching days may ask you to remove your mirrors and tape up any glass like headlights etc.
Once you done a couple of ride days and have decided you’re fast enough to take on MM (we are all quicker than the demi gods when sitting in our armchairs daydreaming about how fast we are), there are some more things to do (best get your wallet properly open at this stage).
Before you hit the racetrack to collect your first $20 prizemoney cheque (I’ve still got mine, sad hey!)
Join an MA affiliated club. Contact your State Controlling Body (SCB) for a list of clubs, their location, as well as the aims and goals of the clubs, the type of competition they promote and their social aspects. DOCNSW is fine.
Once you have joined an affiliated motorcycle club you will then need to obtain a Licence Application Form, which is available from your club or SCB.
You can race on a day licence at club meetings but if you plan on doing more than three meetings you may as well get a yearly licence.
One year senior national licence $320
Day licence $90
