Our track event is limited to just 80 riders total, so the track is relatively clear. In addition, we do not run a ‘C’ group–the third/last 20-minute session each hour is an ‘Open’ session where riders from either ‘A’ or ‘B’ group can ride. That essentially means you could ride for 40 minutes every hour if you have the energy! In practice, it means you can afford to try a test bike, or only ride a half session if you want to pace yourself, as you have plenty of track availability every hour.

The pace at our event, even in the A group is slightly more modest than a typical track day. Typically we don’t have racers attend; your fellow riders are usually ordinary folk out for a day of serious fun. So we take care of our novices or those a little less confident on track; other riders are respectful and will not startle you. In addition we have professional instructors from both Jake Zemke (one-on-one) Riding Development, and the Yamaha Champions Riding School to help guide and advise you–all you have to do is ask for their help! YCRS instructors will also hold classroom sessions earlier in the day to help familiarize you with Buttonwillow.

Are you looking to buy a new bike? Let’s face it… street test rides–if you can get one–don’t cut it. The best way to decide if you want to BUY it… is to RIDE it!

Manufacturers and local dealers (Simi Valley Cycles [Suzuki/Triumph/Yamaha] and Ducati Santa Barbara) will be bringing test bikes for you to try if you’re considering buying a new bike. Confirmed motorcycles are the *hot new* versions!
  • Aprilia : RSV4 and Tuono
  • BMW : S 1000 RR*; S 1000 XR*; R nine T Racer*; and 310 R
  • Ducati : Panigale 1299S, and 959; Monster. Possibly Scrambler Café Racer, and Supersport as well.
  • Honda : CBR1000RR SP; CBR600RR*; CB500R
  • Suzuki : GSX-R1000R
  • Triumph : Street Triple 765
  • Yamaha : R1; R6; R3; FZ-10; FZ-09; FZ-07
* The machines in *BOLD will be shod with the new Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ tire and you will be encouraged to give your impression.
* List subject to change, and new machines continue to be added.

Important Reminder:

Please remember to bring your license (with motorcycle endorsement) and your current motorcycle insurance if you want to ride test machines. Our insurance only allows licensed and insured riders to demo ride bikes.

  • We limit the numbers …so the track is relatively clear. Sign up now and reserve your spot!
  • Up to 40 minutes every hour of track time!  The typical track day ‘C’ Group session with us is an ‘Open’ session. So you have two chances to ride each hour–-that’s up to 40 minutes of track time!
  • Brush up your skills! Novices are always welcome, and the first Open session of the day will be for track newbies to give those less experienced riders a chance to get their confidence up. Throughout the day YCRS instructors will be running classroom and lead/follow sessions too. Please just ask–today’s sessions are included in your entry fee.
  • Jake Zemke Riding Development will be holding his usual one-on-one sessions as well. This is your chance to talk to one of the top riders in recent years and to get his input and advice on how you can improve your riding. Please just ask–today’s sessions are included in your entry fee.
  • Do you want to be a Dunlop tire tester for the day? Dunlop tire engineers and staff will be present, so please feel free to ask them questions, ride one of the machines shod with the new Q3+, and give them your impressions. These guys are real riders and want your feedback! Our video crew will be there to record your opinion…​​​​
  • Which group–A or B?  Group A is faster, passing allowed anywhere; B is more modest, passing only on the outside or straights.
  • Staying overnight? Come to our BBQ!  By popular demand we also offer our Tri-tip BBQ the night before at the track. Bring the family! If you want our  food to save you the hassle, then it’s just $20 a plate.
