This is so stupid I can't comment.

Why not try the drag strip if you want to go straight without endangering the rest of us.

Wanna get better? Stop going 170+ on the hwy....that doesn't improve any skill.

Go on some organized rides on the weekend or hit up a track day. Can't afford it? Work a corner 1/2 day, ride the other 1/2

Ok - first off, you're a fool. I wont even sugar coat that.

Second, you REALLY need to ride with people who aren't retarded. You're risking, at best, jail time. I will virtually guarantee none of you are wearing anything resembling proper gear for normal street riding, let alone proper gear for that kind of on the track. There really is no proper gear for 150+ on the street.

You want to become a better rider? I'll happily help you - and I mean that sincerely. The first thing is, back the off your right wrist. Any fool can roll his wrist back in a straight line and just because you can hang on as that needle moves more and more to the right does not mean you can actually ride.

Unless and until you hit those kind of speeds, there is no reason your 750 can't keep up - and honestly, if you know how to ride the thing worth a , you'd smoke them as soon as a corner came along. I've often wondered why more people don't build 750s...almost the same power as a liter bike, with all the cornering capability of a 600.

if you guys are doing those kinds of speeds on public highways... I have a better suggestion for you... sell your bike and do not buy another of any size...
get off of and stay away from bikes altogether... you do not have the mental capacity for it...and quit thinking out loud on forums, you are not any good at that either....

Track time isnt that expensive. Gear? Full face helmet, leathers (1 or 2pc suit), gloves and boots. You can get a track suit for ~300 if you want to go cheap.

Tape off the headlamps, remove the blinkers if they're not flush mounted, put water instead of coolant in the radiator when you are out on the track - think that's about it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

Check out the sponser section for the different race schools offering track days.

First timers usually get 50% off. Need a helmet, leathers & boots? are free wtih Ridesmart.

Just plan on $100 for the day.

I disagree. Seat time is good, but if you don't know the basics all you're really doing is getting better at doing the wrong things.

Blah blah blah. Do yourself a favor and don't post those speeds here. NOBODY here has done anything like this roll on racing you speak of. It seriously sounds like you need to gear your 750 a bit and practice your roll ons if your getting walked on that bad.

First time track riders even get free leather rentals and boot rentals if you keep your eyes open and you just bring your helmet/gloves/bike in great mechanical condition. come and spectate a track event first to see how things go down. It's better than whats going on down 288 with those idiots that's for sure.

Like everyone else said, the people you are riding with are going to get you killed...but you probably already knew that. A 750 or liter bike isn't gonna mean if you're dead. That's real talk.
