I get so F'n sick of reading that sh*t posted on here every day..... "Track day this" or "Track day that"...... or "Spend your money on a track day" or "learn to be a better rider with a track day" or instead of buying some nice bolt ons etc its "First money you should spend is on a track day" lastly "you can't ride your bike to its full potential until you do track days" blah blah F'n blah.....
Maybe some of us don't want to wad our every weekend and turn our nice $10k bikes into beat up looking track whores...
Would I like to ride A bike on a track? yeah.....do I want to take a chance on scratching up my perfect fairings or pipes because I want wanna be a Matt Mladin.......NO...
Does that mean I can't handle my bikes or I shouldn't mod them because I haven't done a track day?

When I did my first track day last March, I had a blast! I loved it, and can't wait to ride the track again. But by no means does that imply I lost any interest whatsoever in riding street. I love riding. Period. And motorcycling in general encompasses everything to me. It goes beyond the physical act of just riding a machine on 2 wheels. I know what it does for me, and to those of you who advocate track only, with an added "Why?" as if we just don't "get it" or are "missing out" on what real riding is about: we can ask the same of you. "Why not?" and maybe you just don't get it.
Point being: We all have our own reasons to love motorcycling. You have yours' and we have ours'. There's a reason I ride a Naked, and it's directly related to where I ride my bike 99.9% of the time. But there's nothing wrong with someone who rides a hardcore sportbike on the streets, either. And has been mentioned earlier: Even if they are just posing... so what? I can't believe there's a single one of us who are or were not "posers" at some point(s) in our riding lives. Truth be told, though, that the only time a "poser" bothers me is when they are doing it while actually riding on the bike, and not paying attention to their riding, but rather on whether or not you are noticing them riding (squid).
We're all motorcylists, though. I do advocate that if we choose to be a motorcyclist, we need to take the sport seriously and responsibly (especially when actually riding), for your safety as well as others who share the road with you.
