Today I sweated profusely and stunk like a cage of monkies. Wiped myself off and left in my truck. Today I wish there was showers. Does your track have showers?

A couple do.

Highland Park does, but cant think of any others.

You could buy a camp shower. I got the helio xl and it works well. The $5 Walmart special works good enough too.

Some do. I always bring a 5 gallon water container and dunk it over my head after last ride. Takes the first layer of funk off.

Axe body spray & truck it home. Most tracks I go to don’t have a flushing toilet

After a few days you get used to it

If I'm healthy enough to complain. I shouldn't be complaining.

But how cold is the water? I'm interested in warm water showers at the track.

....I'd settle for grilled tri-tip sammitches with frites and hechco en Mexico bottled cokes.... Can we upgrade the concessions while we build showers?

The rinse kit doesn’t hold a ton of water but worth every penny on a hot day. It cools you down after each moto. I also use it for camping and surfing.

In italy 4/5 of the tracks have showers. Dont expect anything special. Some of them even got hot water, while the majority only have cold water.

Well my local track does...but its only for me...because I live at the track...????
All still a work in progress...when I get the deck on the roof of my container home, a water tank will go up there and gravity feed to my hot water unit, which will be mounted above the shower and flue'd out through the roof...and bunch of other jobs I need to do to finish it..

Rio Bravo has showers AND a pool.
Same set up at my track.

I also use a couple of 1 gallon water jugs that get warm in the sun to wash the grime off at tracks with out 1.

I rode at a track in Australia a couple times that had actual warm showers, it is the best feeling after a ride, drive home feeling so much better.

Our local track doesn't have showers but it does show gladiator movies.

As was said, flushable toilets would be a nice touch at this time.

If you get a 2 gallon hudson sprayer ( pump sprayer ) from harbor freight. $ 12, let it sit in the sun and warm you can bring a swim suit and sprayer yourself pretty clean and feel much better. I have an old water fire extinquisher that I pump air into with a sink sprayer for a hand held. Works great and like others said, the drive home is much better.

I never felt the need after a day of racing. More than one day though I take my trailer. After one day at the track I would rather get home, unload and clean my gear and then I can enjoy a real shower and just relax after it is all done.

When I was roadracing most of the tracks had showers which was awesome. Generally you had a long drive home so a quick shower after loading up was perfect.
