Greg, just run your Daytona. Get a second set of wheels and tires if you'd like and have fun. Figure out your suspension setting between track and street and adjust the bike accordingly. Sure, more work before a track day, but I don't think it's any more work than keeping up two bikes.

Best track bike there is, in my totally unbiased opinion (I've had 4). Hit me up for notes if that's what you end up running, they can be tricky to set up and a lot of chassis tuners go the wrong direction.

I should mention that Pirellis suit the 675 better than stiffer tires. Although a lot of it's relative to pace so again, Dunlops would be all you need for track days, but if you start racing and get "fast" (top 5 expert), you will run into challenges.

one thing ive been taught is to use tire warmers if you're using slicks.

Also, pick a brand of tire and stick with it, work with a suspension expert to tune your bike to that particular tire.

Well I ended up doing 2 track days this year, I think I'll be content with something I'm a little less invested in for sport + track duty. My main focus right now is getting an all-rounder bike again so I can enjoy more relaxed ergo's and do some longer distance rides next year. The 675R is great but overkill for me, especially if it's going to be a secondary ride.

You should see Lee on his BMW S1000XR rip-it-up at the track...
