10 people $2000

If we get 10 people who want a BMW track bike to come together as a team, we could buy a 2011 BMW and transform it into a track bike for us to share?

Be a great way to form a bond with a team mentality and a great way for us to all experience the track on a great bike.

I'm humble enough to do it, need 9 other non-selfish track riders

Lol 10 people is WAY too many people, IMO. Not enough sessions and time to switch between 10 people.

Yea, I know, but that's usually for riders trying to do more than just track riding. I'm looking for guys who don't want to spend that much money, yet get a chance with an awesome ride!!

Also a great way to learn in's and out's about track prep, bike prep, etc.

Not to mention I travel a lot so, I believe others are busy too. With 10 we are sure to always have 5 at the track!

While we're at it pick up some sponsorships from Winetopia, Hooters, Twin Peaks, James Coney Island, Starbucks, the Deck, Creekmores, BWW, and all the other places we invade for food and chill time.

I'd just hate to see 9 people shaking their head because someone has to be that single person that crashed the bike and it costs $$$$$$$$$ to fix it one time.

IME sharing a track bike with one person is frustrating enough let alone 10!
With all the best intention in the world I believe ten would be unworkable.....

Better be ten people all within a very close weight range too.

Who all like the same tires.


And don't ride the same org.

It's a first timers thread for noobs to the track that want to have fun. I picked 10 so that all costs are low (damage, parts, etc). With 10 we have enough money left over to buy several sets of tires. It comes with track tires like mine. Not to mention anything else.

To change the preload is so easy on the s1000rr, so weights don't matter.

I'm a team oriented kinda guy, I don't have issues with the little things. The idea about sponsorships was also part of the deal, that's how we keep ourselves going.

Top riders can enter into races that we can support and get some recognition

Just sounded fun.

neat idea in theory and i like your enthusiasm about it.
but in execution it just doesn't seem practical.

like kibby said. Tires & suspension (which does take time if you want it right) is a big deal. sharing of track time, on going cost of maintenance, how is that maintenance cost tracked and divvied out? who's garage has custody at any given time? do you trust these guys/gals? what do you do when it is wrecked?


and lastly....20 sweaty !
