I go ridiculously slow on an 05 R1 Raven and I'm looking at an r6 as a track steed to beat on and learn to go mo fasss on
I had my first trackday this past November at Chuckwalla and got bitten hard, I took a supermoto school the next weekend, and my next trackday is this weekend (Dec. 8 @ Fontana). I actually got the greenlight from the bank warden...err missus...
to pick up a trackbike and go to schools and try to get into racing.
I'm down to ride when I can and definitely down to get cozy in the pits at the track
I think you'll fit in just fine here.
If you're thinking about racing at Chuck, consider grabbing a Ninja 250. There's a spec class for them, with like a 30 bike grid. I'm trying to do exactly that early next year.
Super cheap to run, you'll learn a ton about carrying corner speed on the little two-fiddy and there's less crashes and injuries. Middle-weight is frequently referred to as the "meat grinder" class.
I was dying to get out to ACS this weekend but unfortunately have other obligations. Will hopefully be out at Chuck on January 6th with SocalTrackdays though!
