A CBR250, 500 or a 300 Ninja is what it is and relies on rider talent and experience


I've always felt that it is more fun to ride a slow(er) bike fast than a fast(er) bike fast, and fun is what track days are all about.

When I started this thread I had no idea what a 600 cc factory sport motorcycle was capable of. Astonishing!! Wayyyy different than my KLR 650.

A used (possibly new) something in the 250 to 300 cc range will work just fine, and still give me plenty of room to grow. I am even looking forward to the challenge of upgrading (suspension, braking and ?); I like to tinker with things mechanical. Plus, a small bike would be great for getting around town and finding parking.
