I'd like to enter the world of bike trackdays again. I used to pootle about on 400's, then had a b1h and then a 5sl r6 for years.. I've currently got a 2007 r1 (pre big bang) road bike which I love. I tracked it once but on road tyres and it felt mental quick... I don't want to track it as I find the thought of wrecking a road bike slows me down too much
I was thinking maybe another 4c8 r1 as I like the idea of being able to jump off the road bike onto the same model trackbike..
I've never really got good enough to make the most out of a thou.. always preferred smaller bikes where i can make up the lack of grunt with corner speed and feel like i'm getting the most out of it.. otherwise i'm the person you hate - storming up to a corner, stopping, pootling round and then poooowweeer!
these days most people seem to be on thou's.. I'd like to do more european trackdays too.
ive done 100 miles on one.. the fueling was horrible and the suspension waaay too hard. gearbox was hard work too.. however with an ecu update, suspension twiddle etc It was a much much nicer bike.. beautiful to look at.. i'd have one..
