Nice. But this bike is 1,000 times more interesting than a row of...yawn...Commandos.
This was one of my favorites: a clean vintage bike customized to look like modern muscle.
Twistys first and foremost.
You looking for a one piece or two piece?
I recommend any Alpinestars suits in your budget. Definitely look into one or two time used suits to save a bundle. I personally ride two piece with 360 zipper because I like to walk around without my jacket. RS Taichi, Dainese are all solid brands. Komodo or Speed and Strength are newcomers...
For those doing track days, how much riding experience do/did you have before the first track day?
I've been tracking cars for 3 years (I know its a completely different animal) but curious on how grounded novice riders are.
Slow and steady progress:
My first carbon fiber mold:
I have an old BMW City Suit, but I think I look kind of douchey in it what with the fairly idiotic red/white/green Italianate colour scheme. All nylon, I think -- not great in the heat, really. One good thing, though, is you can wear normal clothes underneath it.
Kind of douchey he sez....
Indeed -- for FULLY douchey you need to be astride a Harley ...
I had been riding twisty roads for about 2 years before my first trackday. It was more than enough. I think you just need to feel comfortable setting up a turn, leaning off the bike and you'll be fine.
I also do HPDE in my S2000, so that will be useful for moto track days, but the sensation (and actual) speed is completely different.
Dude, I am not sure anything can be less symbolic of douche than a Harley Davidson...
As I have attempted to explain earlier in the thread, around here the Harley community is loathesome. I don't get that vibe from American posters and I cannot account for the difference.
methinks the problem morein lies in the interpretation of the term douche..
Thank you, exactly the information I was looking for. Which events do you enjoy more?
Could very well be -- I am frankly old enough that I would never attempt to use it IRL.
Passed my motorcycle training course this weekend and now have my M2 licence. I was on a Suzuki Marauder for most of the weekend.
Any recs for a good cafe-racer style beginner bike?
