if I was going to get on the track I'd choose a mid-2000's 636. I had an '05 for a while and every time I rode it I was all like "Damn. This thing is a no shit hot-rod."

it had everything and FUCK was it fast.

I知 on the cusp of my first track day on the track dedicated bike. This thread lit the fire again to finally get back on the track and stop making excuses.

I hunted and found the bike, started collecting the needed equipment and now feel ready to make it a regular thing. Going to MotoCorsa Track Day at PIR in July 9th and already signed up with MotoFit at ORP on August 11th. It will be my first trip to ORP and I知 really looking foreword to it.

I did my 1st trackday about 2 weeks ago, I'll be at the motocorsa one on Monday. What bike did you end up getting?

I did keep an eye open during winter, I think in the next 6-9 months I'll have a more track dedicated bike and then an all purpose bike more suited to around town and longer distances.

I値l be there as well. White Tundra, blue easy up and this bike.

2002 GSX-R 750 for $1,000

I serviced it the best I could to be track ready. Plugs, air filter, oil filter, oil change, put a wrench on all bolts and checked everything I could at home. It needed a fork seal and a new set of tires as the date code on the existing ones are from 2004. All and all about 1,750 into the bike. It has been a dedicated track bike from the original owner forward and came with a Manufacturer Certificate of Origin, service manual, 4 sets of body work and an extra rear wheel.

I worked at MotoCorsa back in 2014 so I知 excited to see some of the old crew and meet new track riding friends.

Feel free to come say hi and grab some watermelon and a Gatorade. I値l have a cooler full of both.

One hell of a track day. Everything worked out perfect and the weather couldn稚 have been better. I even picked up a set of used tire warmers for $20.

Only damper on the day was the sound NAZI who felt that yelling at adults and treating them like 4th graders was the correct approach to get sound compliance of 90db!

The sound restrictions suck, everything else was top notch including the food. Name:  IMG_0095.JPG

Mondays are quiet days at the track lol! I can understand why they would be so insistent on sound limits what with the steep fines and all. But it sucks they cant be a bit more professional about it. In all fairness though, alot of riders dont return that professional courtesy to comply and fix their bike when told the first time.

Its a two way street for sure.

Glad you had fun! I would have gone yesterday too but Im covering for two other managers this week so ive got my hands full.

Can't say no to a good deal! Good meeting you yesterday

I'll be at the one on 8/13, running B group here on out.

I had an issue 2nd to last session, bike was overheating so came off the track 2nd lap in. Checked everything and ran last session full pace and no issues. Wonder if there was a sticky thermostat or loose fan wire or something.
