Post Track or Street "POLL"

Give out your reasons, not the drama and neither the controversy..

I LOVE the track, but I cant see giving up the street.

Since riding track I have "chilled out" on the backroads tho.

Both for me. Track for the fun of going fast and street to hang out with friends on the backroads.

I agree with Ivan. I can only imagine the feeling on the grid. Soon enough brotha

For me, I enjoy waking up sunday morning and riding with friends. I dont ever do any kind of commuting on the bike. So I vote for both. Yet, in my future i forsee a 600 that will keep me occupied at the track

I have been a 100% street rider and was open to the idea of racing or doing track days but recent incidents has changed my point of view a lot, now i think there are a lot more risks involved than i first thought, and at my age it is just not worth the risk at all.

I am looking into other options such as a smaller and more private track day where most of the riders at the track are close friends so in case something happen at least we know that the support and help is there.

I find street to be more challenging than track. Track, once you go around a few times you know the layout and how each curve plays out so you can push it. The street is never for sure so you have to pay attention to everything.

the last year has been track only. I still have a couple of street bikes but they have not been riden in a long time. For about a year and a half now I have been just doing track, TMGP and trackdays.
The last time i rode street farther than a central meet was to Motorcycles Unlimited and back to have tires put on the cbr.
My harley and my cbr both have expired inspection stickers.

For me it's just track. I get to ride the track atleast every 2 weeks so it keeps me busy. I also enjoy pushing and just the feel of being at the track.

The street for me got boring. My that's just me. To each his own.


+1 for needing in the poll
