Hi yall, a new rider here sincerely desiring to start racing this spring for the first time. Just a "young buck" at twenty years old, I have been riding (sport bikes) for about five years now and am growing bored with track days. In the words of a veteran friend I'm ready to bring another set of britches with me to the track (just in case) I have all of the information on how to get started but I have an even more important question. What to ride?
I guess I am just looking for a little vettern advice. I have been told by a friend that i should start in the light weight supersport class possibly on an SV, however the availablillity of a begginer's priced SV is rather slim. I was warned that the middle weight class may be to competitive for a first timer but I am drawn by the plethora of cheap in line 4 600's on the market with moderate plastic damage and a hoard of aftermarket parts.
So thats my dilema, what do I ride and in what class? Any suggestions?? I realize that speed on the track comes with experience before bike capabillities (hence a TWIST OF THE WRIST) However I would like to ride a bike with the potential to be competitive so that I don't have to purchase another one next season. Well what do yall think?
