I pitted with that guy on Monday and ran with him in B.

That was his first bike track day on it. Didnt fare so well on this bike in B group...probably just not comfortable on the new bike. This thing is a hot potato, guy before him put one track day on it, sells it...this guy puts one on it and puts it up for sale. Hmm...

I feel bad for him because his wife was on his 2006 250R commuter bike running C group and got slammed into by another rider in turn 8. Both had to go to hospital and the 250 was trashed.

oh man. that sucks i'm sorry to hear that. you seem pretty knowledgable about race bikes. i'm getting into it now.. i have been riding bikes for 5 years. mostly crotch rockets. but down here they are no fun on the road. so i'm going to the track. i'm lookin for a good bike to start with.
do you think this bike would be worth it?

I dont know much about race bikes at all really. However, I have seen this particular bike up close and it was fully set up for track use...safety wire, ohlins rear shock and race tech front which is a nice combo. I think he just wasnt used to riding on two wheels there (he was a spec miata guy) and was frustrated with it...that plus his wife getting blasted on the track probably made him want to give up all the bikes. I would buy it for 2.5-3k maybe, but definitely not 3700.

Good bike to flog at track days IMHO. Make an offer.
