and don't worry, the pace of the SMR's isn't nearly as high as some people try to make it out to be. yeah, you'll have your 3-5 up front going nuts, but most of the group is hanging way back just enjoying the ride. it's by no means a to the wall ride for everyone involved.
Lol, i hear ya man. No harm done...

Sounds good. Ill prob hang somewhere in the middle...

As for the bikes, Id actually like to pick up a clean gen 1 10r i can pay cash for or another 600 to play with and make a trackbike. I know i sure as wont be interested in the 08/09 10's though. lol Wasnt too impressed when i went to the reliant expo with all the new models. Didnt see anything i really liked from any of the bike companies that i was too crazy about... The Ducs were nice but for that price, ill take 2 of something else...

track tires use a softer rubber compound that dont get truly sticky until they reach a certain temp. After you come off the track during trackday you will hardly be able to keep your hand on the tire, because its so hot. I've never had mine get as hot on the street.....ever. Never stuck a temp probe to em, so i cant give you exact numbers and temps. Sticky is a pretty relative term. Thats why you see race teams using pyrometers to get tire temps.

although, even cold they'll be WAY better than those OEM dunflops you have now. worst OEM tire ever made.
Dont think ive ever ridden with him... that why i assumed he was referring to the tires.

And yeah, id take just about thing over these dunlops... If i wouldnt have got these 002's, i would have bought a set of power 2cts.

Yeah man, i understand... I dont think any tire on the street regardless what it is would get as hot as a tire on the track... Im sure they will be more then good enough for my current level of riding on this bike.

Yeah, im thinking the same. Id just really like to have a gen 1 in the magma red/orange just to have it cause i love those things! As for being a practical trackbike though, ill take a 600... I bet that 04 is WICKED with the powerband on it. Mine would prob be a little more forgiving then yours is as a trackbike but i will wouldnt want it for the track. Its got alot of punch but doesnt hit quite as radical as the gen 1's do and the slightly heavier front end would make it easier to roll into the power a little harder... Mine rips though.. I love it!
