you know what this is what i'm saying if people put up 900 to get a 3500 dollar bike then if somone chnks it up the track and it's gone then it's understood. when this bike is done people race with me on this bike and someone chunks the bike up the road then i will be . because i put in a whole lot more than anyone else. your friend was the owner of the bike. so i can see him being . but if the cost of buying a bike is shared then it belongs to noone out right.

no my friend was just a rider, he totalled the bike at MSR dallas, now the owners saying the bike is worth XXXX and my friend says its worth XX. he'd pay for 1/2 of XX, but the owner wants 1/2 of XXXX.

i hope you get your team together, but as arturo said, he'd like to ride, but he doesn't want to pony up for the cost of the bike. and like i said, your gonna hear that alot.

you also outta ask on HSN if you haven't burned up those bridges, older riders/racers w/ more $ to burn.

YOu really need to get with guys that you really know and trust. Like patrick said is a business, if the bike is wrecked you all lose not just the rider, i am sure he didn't do it on purpose, no one puts more money or parts, if so then its on his own will. It is a bit complicated but duable with mature people.

the owner is wrong in that case then i cna tell you that. a person showing up to ride the bike as aurturo said isn't part ofa team at all that's just a person getting to race. how is that a team. my object of all of this is a team which menas everyone puts in equally. not someone showing up to ride.

i would pony up gas, race fees, and tires but not the cost of the bike into "ownership". i guess your track/race ready bike and i would volunteer to pony up fees with others to ride, not to build it to $8k dollar investment.

in that case i would be if you ****ed the bike you know what i mean caus ethen i'm out of a bike. know what i mean because at that point i've put in way more than you. I repeat i'd rahter buy a ready made race bike rather than put together a race bike.

Yeah, that makes more sense IMO. Like in TMGP, we came up with the owner supplies the bike. race costs (gas, fee's, etc) are split between the team and the riders each paid a pre-determined amount to ride. Sorta like for wear and tear, maybe it would pay for a engine rebuild at the end of the season or whatever. Oh and you crash it, you pay to fix it.

It's not a problem with friends, but yeah, I can see where problems could come up with fly-by-nighters.

I would not mind splitting cost on the purchase of the bike for a team. If it is wrecked oh well. I mean $500 - $1000 investment per race bike big deal... we could run them in to walls all day if you wanted to.

crashing is going to happen and i know i would also be if somene totaled the bike. if it does get totaled how much would it cost to get t back and running, $2-3k? thats another bike :eh:

I don't plane on running them into the walls but I'm with your mode of thinking. 900 to 1000 bucks a piece t opay for a bike that comes already set up with suspension spares rear sets dampers and etc. is a good deal.

if it's totalled you don't get it back running unles it can be done so with minimal expense. this is the cost of racing if you can't see shellling that out then you don't need to be out there.

very good deal! You could actually probably do 2 bikes if you got the right people on your team. $2000 ish up front cost before the season for 2 bikes would be awesome.

It's a team thing.. no doubt someone always ends up with the short end of the stick, but it's still cheaper than doing everything alone. You'd probably be more about not being able to ride another stint, than having to shell out a few more bucks for another bike or repairs.

2 bikes?? uhmm no i'm thinking one. actually 2000 isn't such a bad deal either 2000 a piece for 2 bikes. but one bike is ideal since it owuld be a first year sort of thing.
