Hi All, OK I know the right answers to my questions, so if I’m being honest with myself I’m looking to justify getting what I want…. But I’m willing to listen to common sense.. I’ve been riding for 18months and I passed my full license test in Oct 2014, so I’m LAMS restrictions for 2 and half years (sigh). My current ride is a FZ6R which I’m really enjoying and now I’ve got the bug and a little more knowledge so I want to do my first track day. The FZ6R is a great all-rounder bike and honestly it has no major compromises. I commute 15kms each day to work and get out twice a month to the twisties, so for what I do it’s fine given I’m restricted to LAMS bikes. (don’t ask if it’s de-restricted)…. I plan on doing a track day on the 6R with it de-restricted which I read is good enough to get my feet wet and see how much I’m goanna love it. It’s my daily ride so I don’t want to crash or thrash it and this leads me to my questions.. (Money is always a factor but that’s for me to worry about so don’t let it influence your answers) Question 1… I’m considering buying a track bike, should I start on a racy 250cc before going to a 600cc SS? I have an old Kawi GPX250 which is a blast, I love pushing it’s limits and I can see the benefits in learning on 250cc at the track. My Kawi needs a lot of work, so it’s not currently an option. I have my heart set on a R6’s but I also like most SS so I’m very tempted to get a cheap used 600cc Super Sport given they aren’t a lot more than a decent 250cc. I don’t want to buy a 250cc to only outgrow it after a couple track days. Life’s short and I feel I’m too old (32) and too sensible to be forced on LAMS restricts for 3 years but I have to deal with it. I believe taking an R6 or similar to the track will quench the thirst I have and it’s much wiser than me riding one on the street. (btw I would tow it to the track). I’m intrigued by amateur racing so in my mind starting on a 250 seems the logical and if I started to race then I would probably invest in a 250 but for now I really want a 600.. What are your thoughts and experiences?
