Sheesh I don't know. I would like to get something for my 14 year old daughter to ride. But I don't want to go too crazy especially until I see she likes it and is safe on it.

Btw did you go Saturday to the Noob trackday? Doug is at TWS (Texas World Speedway) right now getting faster than me. But at least I ain't sweat'n like he is. :eh:

Are you going to Cresson on the 23th of Oct for the full track? I am really pumped about it. I haven't done the new or the old so it sure will be a rush to do something new. Got some wheels off ebay for $440 all included except the front rotors. Sure hope they are straight. Tired of tearing up $350 track tires doing wheelies down the freeway.

Ahhh, I don't do em as much as I use too but every once in a while I will look way back a long ways for the popo and if it is clear and not much traffic I will feel the need to bust 100mph one just so I can still feel alive.

Why not use the R1 at cresson? I know it ain't no suzuki but it still has two wheels.

Man, you are spoiled me and doug have had to do that everytime we go to Houston and now we are even going further.

You like working over riding? I mean I really doubt when you are an old man you are going to say to yourself "man I wished I worked more and did less track days." I really doubt it"

Hey everyone, I'm new to motohouston but I was out there for the noob track day. Those are some great pics. I just want to say Buck is right, it's not if you go down its when. I took a spill at the end of the last session. There are no pics of the actual crash but some good ones of the aftermath. :BangHead:Click image for larger version
