My 1996 YZF750R

My YZF750R fellas. Been racking my brains as to whether or not to take it
to a track day. I have a 2008 ZZR600 that's tracked prepped, but I keep thinking about tracking the YZF.

I say ride it; but not ride the out of it. he has another bike to abuse. Blanco's right, if he destroys it on the track he is going to have a hard time finding original replacement parts.

hey, thanks fellas. I've thought about the cost of replacement parts, but I've also read about how the YZF750 was such an awesome track bike. Don't think it's not ridden, I ride it every other day alternating with the zzr track bike. i'll probably play it safe and keep it off the track. if i do track it and go down i'll be ready for comments.

I will ride it at the track for you.

I'll even GoPro it from 4 different angles, compile the footage with some badass music and a buncha nifty effects, and then narrate it for you and tell you how badass it was.
