Hahahaha......contrary to popular belief.....they do hold stunt comp's. And payout's are getting up there in some division's. Just like it takes a level of skill to master turns and such, it also takes a level of skill to take a 300 or 400 pound machine and make it do what you want it to do.....

Plus.....I know more than half of you guy's have wheelied on the street's before...even though some of us may do it more than others....

I realized when I got older that there was ALWAYS someone, faster, smarter, better looking, had more money, a nicer ride, etc, etc, etc. The only person you race at a trackday is yourself. You wont crash if you ride within your limits, but some people dont even know what their limits are.

Most guys at track days are pushing themselves to their limits.

It's cool. I have nothing against trackriders. To tell you the truth, I've NEVER, NEVER been to a trackday, even just to spectate, but i'm pretty sure it would be enjoyable.....

Your still confused Del, I can tell by the wording of your sentences. The point of stunting and racing is to get a 400 lbs bike to do what you want it to do. The best stunt I have ever seen was Mike Sanchez pass me in T6 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) doing a wheelie and waving at me. I think it is time you just man up (or woman up) and come to a track day. Most likely you will meet some nice people, learn alot about your bike, learn some valuable skills and have a whole lot of fun.

Hahahha....trying to turn me to the darkside eh moody? Hahaha.....I have no doubt it would be fun. But, maybe, just maybe you all should venture to a stunt comp, where it's in a controlled environment and see what they can do. They can honestly do more than just wave at you while wheeling.....:laughing6

Del, Do you really think the guys that race do not have an appreciation for good stunting? We all love motorcycles... that is why we do it. If you have not meet Brandon from Motorcycles Unlimited, then you should. He is a stunt guy but his latest stunt was getting in some solid 1:50s at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on Monday. Don't take us track heads for haters. We just like to laugh at the dumb stuff like everyone else and yes I am just giving you a hard time because I can already tell that one hit from the track pipe would have you addicted.

chances are - mike's throttle was pinned in 3rd @ about a buck twenty rapidly approaching a 90 degree left hander... where he (probably) kicked out the rear wheel a little before sliding and diving in to the turn...

one of the fastest guys the cmra (brandon @ m-u) used to be a stunna too btw - now he owns the track... :notworthy

you should come out sometime man... it will all make sense... just come on out sometime...
