    I'm sure a lot of people here ride dirt bikes but does anyone do motorcycle track days or club racing?

    No track, but plenty of sport-touring. Did an amazing 1,200km tour of Tuscany last spring. I normally rack up 20-25K miles a year on two wheels.

    I've got my Suzuki M50 (new to me this year) and the ol' CB550. Don't make it to track days but commute whenever the weather allows (today included:D) and average several thousand miles a year through the mountains (actually hills) of VA.

    Currently finishing up my R1 for track only duty. I got in about 8 track days last year on the motard also. I used to race motocross, but have been into sportbikes for 3 years and im never turning back. :thumbsup:

    I spend as much time on my bikes as I can. I just got rid of my CBR and Yammie warrior to get my 919. I haven't done any trackdays. I have been told you have to do a lot of mods to get it on the track around here and I don't want to do that much work. I find lots of curvy roads though

    Takes about 30 or so minutes for a first time track rider depending on the bike and the organization you go with. remove license plate, tape up lights, put on your gear and you're ready.

    You don't have to start using safety wire, changing fluids, and all that until you have some experience and move up.

    No track, but this is what I carve canyons with and attack on/off ramps.

    Nice wheelie! Here is one of mine. I made three passes in front of my house at about 80+ ( the street is abandoned as you can see, and In first gear all I did was spin the tire), and this was the best one that my neighbor could get. I would have used my wifes camera which takes 3 fps shots, but If she knew what I was doing, she would have hacked my bike into little pieces. :)

    I try to do at least two trackdays a year. We've got a number of good tracks within a 3 hour drive so we're pretty spoiled. First couple trackdays were on a big TL1000S and all the rest on a gsx-r750.
