We will be visiting with our friends at Max BMW in North Hampton, NH on Saturday March 7th and in Brookfield, CT on Saturday March 28th. Come out to learn more about track days, Fishtail and why you should join us at the track.

One of the things that makes Fishtail special is our community of riders. We simply enjoy hanging out together, sharing our passion of riding. 

To help our riders nurture our community, we have created a Fishtail forum. Here you can discuss anything you'd like. We have set up sections for general discussion, lodging (for our road trips) and for sale. We trust that the posters will use the same courtesy and respect on the forum that they use on the track. Please feel free to start threads and participate.

The forum is run on a separate web site from our main site. You will need a logon that is specific to the forum. To join the forum, click the Register link in the uppler right corner and follow the on screen instructions.

Steve Ford demonstrating slow speed riding skills

At Fishtail, we like to say it’s all about the corners. But, not all corners are high speed. Some of the most challenging turns we make are the slow ones.

To help with this challenge we are now offering a new slow speed riding school, led by Steve Ford a former NH State Police Motorcycle Officer. We met Steve when he attended our high speed police training school.

Here is what you really wanted for Christmas: the Fishtail Riding School motorcycle track day dates and pricing!

  • 5/9 NHMS Full Academics/Lunch - $260
  • 5/24 Thompson, CT Discount Day - $180
  • 6/6 NHMS Full Academics/Lunch - $260
  • 7/11 NHMS Full Academics/Lunch - $260

  • 8/15 NHMS Full Academics/Lunch - $260
  • 9/12 NHMS Full Academics/Lunch - $260

All of the dates are eligible for our High Flyer Discount. The High Flyer Discount saves you $40 on select motorcycle track days when you purchase 5 or more track days as part as part of single transaction. The transaction must be completed prior to the season opener on May 9th, 2016. 

Palmer Motorsports Park in Ware MA is a new track for us this season. Check out the Palmer Motorsports Park page for information and look for additional information on this track as we get closer to the date.

Registration is now open!

The slow speed riding school, started last summer by former NH State Police motorcycle officer, Steve Ford, is back for its second season in 2016. The school teaches riders the proper techniques for slow speed maneuvers like weaving through cones, circles, u-turns and other patterns. The school will run concurrently with our track days at NHMS.

For those of you who stay at the Red Roof Inn in Loudon for our NHMS days, they have changed ownership. The hotel is still there and operating, but they will become a Quality Inn instead of a Red Roof. They can be reached directly at (603) 225-8399 for reservations.

Vermont Artisan Coffee

As part of our continual effort to offer the best food in track day riding, we are providing Vermont Artisan Coffee at all NHMS events this season. This is thanks to a generous donation of fresh roast coffee on their part. 

Vermont Artisan Coffee and Tea provides artisan roasted coffees and exotic teas to retail establishments, food service markets and customers thoughout Vermont, the Northeast and through the web. The company is owned and operated by Mane Alves, a native of Lisbon Portugal and a very fast guy on a BMW S1000RR.

Club Motorsports, Tamworth NH

Interested in riding what has been called “The best track in America”? So are we! Club Motorsports, the new road course under construction in Tamworth, NH is finally opening this summer, and Fishtail is the exclusive motorcycle organization for their inaugural season. This September we’ll be taking a limited number of riders with us to experience this fantastic facility on two wheels. We should be able to post the actual date soon, so stand by. Slots will (understandibly) go quickly once registration opens.

The scheduled 9/11 track day at NH Motor Speedway has been cancelled. The slow speed riding school, scheduled for 9/11 has also been cancelled. With the addition of the Tamworth track days on 9/18 and 19, we felt the 9/11 date was simply too close to justify keeping both dates. 

A new Palmer MA date has also been added on 9/28. To keep things interesting, we will be running this track in reverse direction, effectively creating a whole new track!
