Our favorite day of the year rolls around every summer; the day we roundup the latest and greatest sportbikes and super nakeds and head to the track to do testing for our big comparisons. This year, we thought it would be fun to invite you along to join us.

That's right, this year you can come and learn a bit about how we track test high-performance bikes, discuss riding techniques with the most experienced testers in the business, hang out with your favorite editors, and check out some of the latest sportbikes on the market. As an added bonus, we'll even have Cycle World staff photographer Jeff Allen, one of the best motorcycle action photographers in the world, on hand to make sure you get killer shots of yourself shredding the track.

We'll be splitting everyone into three riding groups, each getting five sessions on track just like your normal track day...just with us flying around and a few racers tossed in the mix. You know, for funsies.

Learn about how magazines track test high-performance motorcycles, discuss riding technique with the most experienced testers in the business and check out some of the latest sportbikes from Japanese and European manufacturers.
