Project Trackbike.

Picked up an 08 Yamaha R6 the other day.  It has 22k miles so I'm doing the valve adjustment on it.  New tires, chain, and sprockets to get it ready for the track.  Maybe at somepoint I'll get some track bodywork.

Here's the pic of it all back

Here's the pic of it all back together.  Once the suspension is rebuilt by ororcycle.com I'll get it out to the track!

Yep.  Very soon.  I got it in to OROR and the suspension was night and day better.  I'm heading on a short vaction and will get signed up for some trackdays right after that.

Looks like TONS of fun...I'm hoping to get to the beginner track school someday soon.  I want to improve my riding skills but am still nervous about dropping the bike

Let me know when you are ready to go.  I can get you 50% off your first trackday with ridesmart.info.

trackdays

Mr. Cheese,

                  could you give us some basic info about how you get signed up, where to go, basic costs - to paticipate in trackdays?  It's something I'd like to do but don't know how to go about it. 

thanks.

guzzi,

guzzi,

Track days are about as much fun as you can have on a motorcycle!  You'll love it.  ridesmart.info is the track school I recommend.  General cost is 100-150 for an entire day.

I'd visit the ridesmart website and read as much as you can there.  I'm more than happy to answer questions for you. 

 

I remember my first trackday.  It sounded intimidating, but it really wasn't hard.  Ridesmart really enforces safety and starts everyone out at ground 0.
