I think the classes where you run a R6 are way more crowded than the ones for the SV so you'd have a lot more competition.

There's a nice SV in the for sale section right now

SVs are great bikes to learn skill on.

I have to agree with you on this one man. He is true, the 600 class is tough and allot of competition out there on the 600's.

I've never been to the track, so you can take my advice or leave it. However, I agree with Racer X...

Continue working on your skills. From everything I've heard, in sportbike riding technique is everything. Once you've mastered the skills, move on up and you'll be ownin some fools

You have lots of options, but you should consider mini motards, F4 minis and 125 GP bikes / Mori MH 250 before SVs and 600s. Minis and purpose built racers teach you the fundementals of corner speed and, as a bonus, they crash well. Riding the little bikes makes riding the big ones easier. Visit www.cmraracing.com, download a rulebook, and explore what classes these bikes race. Remember, too, that minis can be raced in CMRA as well as TMGP events, giving you more opportunity to ride.

Check out the for sale section. I know there was a SV in there for sale a while back, not sure if it sold but it was clean.

ah, that is true. I guess didn't think my post through fully, sorry . I have heard of guys on 250's that can out ride some guys on 600's.

My main point was that it's all about the skill of the rider. Once you have skill and technique down, the increase in speed will most certainly follow.


Mo betta Dave?

but there are alot better bikes then 600 s and even SVs to learn that skill.

if you look at all the top racers, they started small as in 50cc small, and that applies to cars also.
