I'm not trying to talk you out of it, trust me I heard it all from everyone when I was back on the bike 6 weeks after breaking my back. Just some food for thought.

Racing did give me the motivation to go faster tho. There is no doubt about that. If u look at the race results from last year I finished second to last my first race and at the end of the year finished on the box. Even this year racing with a broken wrist I managed a 5th. I had surgery to fix the wrist so I'veissed a few rounds but hope to be back soon. So don't say never, racing will make you faster and better no doubt. Good luck man hope to see ya on the grid!!!!
I'll probably make it onto the grid next season though... I do want to get some trackdays under my belt first. Just because I WANT to race doesn't mean that I am READY to race. I'm not. Honesty is how one maintains safety. I strongly believe that.

Speaking of insurance... I have been thinking all day about that... would my insurance carrier not cover me if I raced? Do I need to consider upgrading it? Is there a specific plan for racers? I'm with Blue Cross PPO 100% expenses covered. All I have to pay for is mere copays. If admitted into hospital then no copay required. I should give them a call and find out but I also don't want to scare them away. Lol.

I also have Aflac.

money money money is what it costs.
how much of it is up to you.
i bet you have a number in mind of what you wanna spend,you can make THAT match with a bike that fits that.
from a ninja 250 to a ducati 1198S.

but i will tell you this,nothing ,i mean nothing equals the feeling of gridding up and actually competing for position without -footing because of safety nazis.
that in itself is priceless........
THATS why i started racing at 38.

......championships are not that far fetched,the biggest obsticle is being at every event,not 100% speed.
do yourself a favor,dont compare your laptimes with those of race results.
not apples to apples.
