  1. 1 bike for street/track

    An sv on q3s would be a great bike if you dont want to get into a 600.
  2. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    Shes such an easy going baby. On the way back from virginia beach last week we stopped once for diesel and let Liam burn off some energy then made it the whole way home without stopping. They both do real well in the truck. I would have had to stop 3 times for @TRMN8TR to piss.
  3. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    My wife likes coming to the track to hang out, and my son loves everything bikes. Walks around the paddock saying vroom vrooom. My Daughter is 3 months old so she doesnt get a say. Im in a great position for now I guess. My in-laws stop out as does my family.
  4. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    When I felt our street riding was getting too risky Ryan convinced me to go to the track. There I could push myself and the bike and not worry as much about the consequences and I always felt at home on the track. Even on a mild street ride I would think "if a deer hopped out of these trees id be fucked". On the track all I think of is what I am doing, when do I need to get on the brake, off the brake, move my body etc.... they are totally different experiances for me. We have had 2 kids since I started riding on the track and of course in the back of my mind is the question "is this something I should be doing". Im not sure if it is to be honest, I would do alot more sprint races if it werent for the family situation but track days and endurance racing are less intense and I feel like that could be a good balance. I am in a position now where I have a camper and the wife and kids can go to the track and hang out for the weekend, go somewhere for a few days afterwards which is awesome. To be honest I fear the day that I cant ride anymore. I cant think of anything on earth that can give you the rush this sport does, to feel the bike moving around under you, slide the rear tire on the brakes just to the point of turn in, knee down and roll on the throttle to accelerate out of a turn. When you know you nailed a corner to the best of your ability there is nothing like it, everything just flows. I cant think of anything that can take the place of that feeling, or a way to describe it. I know of alot of people who have dropped off because of kids or jobs and I never understood how you could give up something like that. Maybe when its time for me to give it up I will understand, but for now im looking forward to next year.
  5. My track bike conundrum.

    I think I only crashed in those RST the one time. But who knows after that mess of a weekend.
  6. My track bike conundrum.

    Il paste my for sale add. I need to create a new one as I edited a for trade add and think I lost a bit of attention that way. Its a legit well setup low mile R6. 2013 R6, 3600 miles Ohlins 30mm cartridges with 1.0 springs serviced by MDM part way through this season Ohlins TTX shock with. 95 spring serviced by MDM part way through this season LeoVince full titanium exhaust Translogic quick shifter Gpx pro lap timer Ohlins steering damper GB covers on everything Extra set of wheels Extra tail already painted 4 different rear sprockets Goodridge stainless lines Sbs pads with 2 days on them Armorbodies body work Woodcraft shark guard Certificate of origin Was bought new and taken to markbilt by original owner to convert it to a track bike. I am the second owner. Had a slow crash on one side at njmp this year. But I used tape the same color as the body work and it is well hidden. Windscreen is also cracked. Shoot me a pm if interested and I can send pictures, dont want to clog this thread up too much. I posted some recent videos from summit and I am done riding for the rest of the year so its gonna sit. I asked 8k in a FB group but understand thats probably a bit high. Would still like to get in the ball park of 7500 or trade plus cash on my end for a 16 R1.
  7. My track bike conundrum.

    My R6 is for sale if interested.
  8. Videos from Summit

    Havent quite worked all the details out yet, maybe by next week or the deal will fall through and il sell.
  9. My track bike conundrum.

    Kawi Engine is great, already has a slipper and traction control and the abs you are looking for.
  10. Videos from Summit

    Haha kinda. If you watch close he passed me twice and I passed him back both times. But I wasent going to push through those 2 riders.
  11. Videos from Summit

    Finally took a couple videos on monday. Nobody was setting any personal bests or anything but had a great day of riding.
  12. My track bike conundrum.

    Il add you to a facebook group that has lots of stuff for sale. Its getting to be that time of year.
  13. My track bike conundrum.

    I agree but it has to be setup right. Like the new R1 stuff cant begin to compare to older first gen abs systems.
  14. My track bike conundrum.

    When did you crash? Must have missed that
  15. My track bike conundrum.

    Hey now that new R1 ABS is a different thing altogether. A 2010 cbr doesnt have a gyro in it or understand when a wheel is off the ground, know how much lean angle you have. Tonik buy a 2015 R1. I heard a couple others on OR might get one.
