Lol you and I are in the same boat then. I actually started faster then I am now but a couple crashes due to suspension issues and Ive lost my nerve.

Ive read that the grids for the 250s are like 20+ bikes so you'd always have someone to race with.

Re: New Track guy in PHX

I paid 6k for it, which I feel was 1k moe then it's worth BUT it's close and owned by a expert racer I know who maintained it perfectly. Also he is throwing in some spares so I will be able to sell those.

YEAH ESP is a first rate shop. I dont even plan on bringing it home, gonna take it directly to them to have the engine refreshed and the suspension set for my weight.

I will post pics once I pic it up. Stay tuned, I'l continue to post my thoughts about the R6 VS 675 as I go along.

Arroyo is the perfect environment to learn! I'm sure you'll have fun with Xcel, but def make plans to come out! Such a good time, and usually open sessions so you can ride as much as your heart desires. Just adk some of the regulars to show you lines and give you feedback. Everyone out there is more then happy to help!


RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.
