yo

hey all. i'm from dallas, been riding a kawi 650 for just under a year, with a few minor mods it turned out to be a really good street bike i'm really digging it. have been getting curious about track riding, so i went out to OHR and talked to some of the racer dudes, then went to the cmra race last weekend, and that was totally badass, so i got a full leather suit and some race faring for my bike and looking to do some track days hopefully in march.

pretty new to all this, so if anyone has any advice let me know, i realize now the 650 probably isn't the best choice for the track, and i really never intended to take it out there, so i'm trying to keep the mods fairly light, and still keep it as a street bike.

also i'd be interested in hooking up with any local track riders here in dallas, i figure its easier to go with a few people than doing it all by yourself, plus i'm sure there's tons more i need to learn.

Welcome to houston and to the board.
Theres a few 650 owners on the board. Some of em track their bikes as well.
That bike is plenty capable for having fun on the track. Probably more fun than most other bikes since your just starting out. You can always upgrade later if you think you need it.

Welcome to MH. I used to live close to Mesquite back in the day. I lived in Balch Springs and close to Seagoville.

Another 650R owner here. Talk with DaveC and he'll let you know that his 650R is track worthy.

Post up some pics of your mods.
