Since I did track, the streets have not been as fun for me. I don't ride the street nearly as much. Could never give it up, though. The sisters are fun as !

On another note... I can always count on a Lucar thread to be entertaining.

I know what you mean. Idk if its that they're not as much or if its the fact that your not riding as hard which makes it less fun.

what a hard decision. I think I would have to pick track just because of all the fundamentals and IMO its where I can really learn my bike. I don't ride streets as much either.. still do commute to work a little bit but those weekend rides seem less exciting.. also depends on who your riding with i guess.

Just my 2 cents.. and my way of getting things back on topic

I enjoy both. When I can't afford track I enjoy the street. Riding street is very different from the track, but I enjoy it.

I would love ride different tracks more often, but i dont have time to go anywhere really further than TWS (Texas World Speedway) or msr. maybe one i'll travel to the far vast mysterious and beyond. Also I cant afford a track day every time i want to ride!! wtf! it gets expensive so I ride whenever but prefer track but time and money will only allow me to ride street more often.

VFR800 is my daily driver and it carries me to work rain or shine, as well as the occasional weekend or week long getaway. The SV650 is track only and I try to take it out at least once a month. Then there's the dirt bikes too...

Street only. Don't seem to have the time for the track although it does intrigue me. Also I am not entirely confident in the track vendors and other riders for training and safety. Did my share of racing snowmobiles---I know how hazardous it can be.

I love riding on the track on the rare occasions I go but it is expensive. I can afford it but it still stings coughing up a few hundred bucks to go riding for a day. Figured out a few years ago that sport bikes just aren't that much fun on the street. More comfortable bikes make it more enjoyable. A motard on the street is where its at. Also enjoying my cruiser lately. All about the right tool for the job and to me a sport bike on the street feels like wearing boots to play basketball.
