Because I have rode with him plenty of times as well and this is my opinion. He has stated many times that he would like to race. Now is the time for him to man up on that or go out and ride with the rest of the fuking idiots on the streets.

2nd, he is a kid. One that does not need to be on the streets with a 600.

Riding around here is not near as bad as it is in houston.. Sure i'd love to go track only, but cruising through some of these backroads for a $10 tank of gas is a little better on my budget than building a bike i cant even legally ride to the corner store and have to trailor the bike to the track and pay 150+ to ride.

I'm not looking to be the king of the streets or anything, I'll leave that to the sonic squids (the place the squids meet up at to race through twisties around the airport)

The 600RR sucks as a street bike. How do I know? I have owned 4 of them. They hurt your nuts after about 30 minutes of riding. Get an SV or something.

not everyone who is on the streets rides like a fuking idiot, and i had a liter bike when i was his age, its all about your mindset

Dude, how many times do I have to post on how to be a racer with a budget? 2nd, if you just show up at the track at your age people will start helping. Now is the time my friend and that is coming from someone who has wanted to race street bikes since I was 16. Don't wait till later and miss out on your youth at the track. Make a wise decision, you could easily have a steet bike and track bike for less then what it will cost to finance a new 600cc sport bike.

I rode 4 different 600RR's over a period of 3 years.( An 03, 04 and two 05's) I have well over 10,000 miles clocked on that model bike. It hurts your nuts after 30 minutes.... that alone as a guy should be a sign but yeah they are amazing and reliable bikes but if you plan on doing some real riding then it would not be my first choice as a street bike. I would take a GSXR over the RR for street cruising.

Whenever i get a bike im doing a trackday or two without a doubt, but 1st of all, im not gunna buy a bike to strictly use for track purposes only. And 2nd of all, i know its wierd, but i hate it when people pay my way through things:eh: Who knows, I may be able to make enough money to ride track enough to fulfill my riding satisfaction later on, but for now, i'll just tape up the headlights and go out there every once in a while

Also, this leads to you stiff arming the bars. Which leads to putting fead back into the front end which leads to going down when you get it some bumpy surfaces.

Well, I am done. It is not my will to bend yours. It was only to offer advice to some one half my age that I felt had the same intentions as I did when I was his age. Good Luck!

from someone who's done both, i can assure you, it's cheaper to have a dedicated track bike. you spend less on gas, MUCH less on insurance, maintenance is less because you're riding fewer miles, and after you ride track for a while, you have no desire at all to ride street. after growing up doing nothing but riding track, i've been on a street bike for the past 3 years, and hate it. i'm now in the process of converting my bike into a track bike, and giving up street for good. well, after i make my august trek out to deal's gap at least.

you will find out quickly that you cannot sanely and safely explore the limits of your motorcycle on the street. and to me, that's what riding is all about, knowing my bike, and knowing myself and improving both. there's a fairly low ceiling on just how hard you can push it on the street without killing yourself.

I'm not buying a bike to push it to its limits on the street. Im getting a bike to just get away from the i put up with around here in waco. When i move back to housotn, I probably wont have a desire to ride the streets even without riding on the track. but untill then I plan to buy a 600 to ride streets up around here, and when i get back to houston someday, i'll throw race plastics on it and push the bike to its limits
