    Can't wait to get my body work finished on the ugly GXSR. It is going to look sweet.

    I just started riding at the track and I used my CBR400 but I'm selling that and I'll probably use my Shiver for a few days, then maybe my RSV4 with race fairings. I was also thinking of picking up a cheap CBR600 that way I'd have more fun knowing if I did bin it, it wouldn't be so bad.

    Very cool. Is that an old SP? I worked at Ducati San Antonio years ago and I got to ride an SP. It was SICK. The 999 had just come out and the Boss let me take them both out for a spin. Very cool especially when the 999's had not even been released for sale yet. I am also a Marine. I am a Sgt in Afghanistan at the moment. I have two Aprilia's as well 04 RSV Fac & 10 RSV4 Fac and love em both very much.

    I sold my ZX6R and recently traded my project SV 650 for a 2001 GSXR 1000..

    Comes with Woodcraft case covers, rearsets, Traxxion forks, Armour Bodies that need a little attention, another set of Sharkskinz that need a LOT of attention, racing fairing stay, stock wheels, and a set of forged magnesium Galespeed wheels on it. These wheels run $3200 alone! I have a Penske on order for the rear and already installed an Ohlins damper and have done a few other little things. I have also got all the bodywork done and the skins are ready for paint, which I hope to get done tomorrow. I will say this: I have riden MANY fast bikes, but this thing has some serious accelleration. Don't know if it's the wheels that make a difference or what, but it's bloody fast.

    Pics to follow!

    I don't think I will race the 600 unless me or the wife comes up with some extra income.
    Plan is to split a ninja 250 with my buddy and start an endurance team.

    Are you guys doing endurance Ted?

    Datona 675

    I am a vet level tech, I personally ride a Milli R, I built a Triumph Daytona 675 for my brother. My Aprilia is great for a do anything bike and handles extremely well at speed. Most track days are on tighter tracks and much to my dislike, my brother yards me until I get to places were I can use higher speeds
    . If we switch bikes, its the same, I pull my own bike until we get to the fast sections. The Triumph is a great bike and has very forgiving handling that I highly recommend.

    I have found a GREAT deal on a 08 daytona 675. Besides Tripletrash no one has mentioned anything about the 675. What are your thoughts?

    MuZ720. I totally understand what you mean about the overwhelming power on a liter bike. Needless to say I have very little track experience, but I have riden my 08 Kawi 250 which was fun at first but soon as I learned my lines I quickly noticed it was not set up for the track at all!!! The more I rode it on the track the less I liked it, I felt it was holding me back and I didn't want to spend the money on it because I felt it was going to be pointless. The few times I rode my RSVR on the track I was in 3rd gear and 4th on the straight and the power was just too much for my riding ability.

    I will look at a 675 and certainly concider a SV650
