Complete set Dunlop 16.5 race tires
1 Set Daytona Compound 16.5 Plenty of life left

Glad you like her, Dave. I miss you guys : )

...the bikes are fun, though, because they're so freaking cheap and so freaking fast. A set of top notch track tires will cost $300 installed and last 4 track days. ...and that's the MOST expensive thing. That whole bike only cost me $2500 and it is set up to the MAX. ...like, top notch suspension tuned for my weigh, engine custom mapped, brand new slicks, extra wheels with extra tires... I mean, granted it was a steal of a deal... still... just awesomely cheap.

...my safety gear probably cost me more than the bike.

go get that Ducati you were pining after!!



money well spent!
lol, NOT the Ducati for this. I'm LOVING riding at the track now. This bike is for wrecking (albeit hopefully not THAT bad...) ...You can't really ride fast until you're not afraid of crashing.

...PS, I need a paint scheme.... My track gear is all white and black with a little red mixed in... I'm thinking ALL WHITE, and doing some red little accents or something...

I determine the speed I want to travel based on how hard I am willing to hit something solid…

If I knew I had plenty of room to skid, roll, bounce to a stop - I wouldnt mind putting down a bike a few times - I would also like to jump off a moving bike incase I encounter something like that...

I will probably never have a bike unless it's the end of the world and cars become too expensive to maintain.

Our 'home' track doesn't have any walls... there's lots of room for sliding around :)
