Anyone know where they do this... Rent bikes?

I have my ZX10R in track set up, with a full set of street plastics put safely away. It can be switched over in a reasonable amont of time and I have two sets of wheels.

It can be done...but I leave it track day set up mostly. It's somewhat a pain in the .

Rentmyninja if he is still around. Great guy to work with. Not sure if he is still around though.

I got Aaron's old bike in my garage, still set up for a heavy guy, with lots of trick stuff on it. It's ready to race or trackday on. It's way too stiff for my 200 lbs. I'd like to discuss a trade for the trials + some cash.

FYI, Aaron didn't get faster cause of the 600, his just finally dropped
