Jb. Junior has a 99 r6 on here for sale that would be perfect for starting off. I rode with him a few times at the track. Great guy. Check his out.

You know in all reality, even with the high strung 450's going boom, it's worth it.

I like my Duke, but it is not as fast...I my get pulled back into the 450 world eventually (probably).

F-it go for the tard, just put away 50-100 bucks a month for the rebuild that will happen if you ride em hard. You won't spend much on crash repairs...it's sort of a wash.




Your mileage may vary...

since this bike is gonna be strictly a track weapon, take your time and shop around for something already set up. i'm talking suspension, plastics, exhaust, whatever. worth saving up a little more to get a better bike with the goodies already on it. makes it easier in the long run, since at some point you'd want to get those parts anyways. like Irak said, these next few months are prime track bike buying time. good luck.

Great advice. You can usually find great deals on ex-race bikes, etc. Those suspenion bits may need servicing and to be set up for your weight, but much cheaper than buying new.

I'd second an SV650 or ninja 250 as well with a nod to the SV650.

When I try to link sites from the CMRA site, I fail at the interwebz.

So here is this. A friend had one and loved it for track days.

2001 Triumph TT600 (inline 4 600CC) track bike for sale - $2000 OBO (trying to fund racing for next year). For anyone wanting a solid track bike (so you don’t have to worry about risking your street ride), this is a perfect bike for you. This bike was Big D Cycles’ CMRA endurance bike. The bike includes a Penske rear shock (serviced last December by Roger Albert On Road / Off Road Cycles in Austin), M4 exhaust, two-stage rectifier, Shark Skinz race bodywork (some rash and cracks, but solid), Pirelli Pro Slick tires, front steering damper, service manual, recently installed front EBC brake pads, braided brakes lines, new vortex rear sprocket, and Powerstands rear stand. E-mail (heinzroy at gmail dot com) or PM with any questions.

Thank you for looking!

The TT600 was my first bike. It was heavy but it was down low. Easy bike to ride with a decent motor and stable platform. For the price it might not be a bad option.

It wouldn't be my first choice but then again for under 2k...
