Why? B/c I can't afford to drop $200 for fun for one day plus constant $400+ tire changes, etc. It's not like I try to "track ride" while on the street anyways.

And secondly... why not?

suprisingly not many riders enjoy what their bike was made for.. just the other day i tried to convince a guy to TRY a track day, never met him before but he said he'd been riding about a year and he just didnt find it interesting. I finally realized that he just bought it to look cool, not even go on rides with buddies. to each his own i guess:/:

Truthfully the latest crop of sport bikes are designed to be cutting edge race bikes, thinly disguised.

Therefor, if you aren't racing, (track days don't count as they are not races), you are just posing anyhow.

Me, it annoys me when someone tries to tell me how I should ride my bike, based on their opinions. If they want to buy me a bike, then they can dictate how I ride mine.

Otherwise, step off and mind your own business.

thanks!

thank .. i agree.. i too am tired of people telling me i should do track days.. that is what these bikes are made for.. if they were made for the track. they wouldnt have lights, blinkers and street stuff on em... and besides if i wanta pose and look cool... whats wrong with that.. if it is not hurting you.. then what harm is it...

i get that too... so i rode David's 750 on the track... did 5 sessions... I was mad that i spent $100 on it. then someone says, well if you aren't hooked do it 2 more times and you will be. that's like saying i know you don't like cocaine, but take a few more hits til you get used to it then you'll get hooked. I don't get it, it's not for me

Don't get me wrong, track days are a blast. At least the last one I did 20 some odd years ago was...


BUT to say they are the "only" way to enjoy your bike ... nope!

main reason I don't ride the track is because I don't have a trailer to tow the bike and because I ride my bike as a primary mean of transportation to school and work--car is only used to pick up the bike's parts--and if I crash it severely a part of me will be crippled.
