It's probably been mentioned before but a radio for the folks that come along but don't ride. Or an Ipod with some speakers. Yesterday I brought the speakers but forgot about the batteries...damn the creation of AAA lol.

Sorry... I haven't read the whole thing... but just this past weekend I tried two things....
1- electrolyte replacment mixes (available at any bicycle shop)
2 - rags kept in a cooler of cold water/ice

The electrolyte replacment worked awesome for preventing fatigue from dehydration and really helped to replinish salts.
The rags were perfect for putting on your head and over your shoulders when you get off the track.
It really helps cool you quickly!
Keep it in its own dedicated cooler b/c it gets really salty from all the sweat collected off your body.

New to the Forum and to the R6. Anyone can tell me what fuses to pull for the headlights? Bought the bike used, no manual and only one key...

I am new to bike racing, but have done autocross, drag cracing and scca. In total what you need to bring to the track should weigh a minimum of the weight of your track ride. For drag racing and scca my crew and I would carry close to 3000lbs or gear (tires, fuel, lubes, canopy, flooring, an engine, clutches, batteries, TOOLS, drinks, BEER, for after, etc.
