    Will to try a track bike at the track

    Found out one of my co worker has Non running X-Penguin school bike . Going to get it to run as he does not do track days now and also has a R6 trackbike. He paid 600$ for it with a spare engine and if i destroy it on a track day then i owe him 250$ or else its free to ride.

    now is it okay to ride a bike i never ridden first time on the track...?

    my usual ride is a fz1 2005. has around 30k and ride it on most days ...ex500 is quiet different as i am told.Till now i have put around 80k on bikes in the last 10 yrs on bandits , vstrom and fz....completely different than thisi am 6 3.250 lbs - big appish guy. Do i bring both?,,,confused


    some input is appreciated.

    $600 is too much for a non running EX500.

    From what I can tell you will be driving an ex500 for the first time at the track and are curious if riding a new to you bike for the first time on the track is okay.....completely ok, have fun!

    I AM NOT BUYING THE BIKE.. he is getting it to run .battery seat and tank. then i have to help while we change oil/fiter,bleed brakes and race plastic on.

    i get to use it for free as long as i donot destroy it ..if i do i pay him 250$.

    Re: Will to try a track bike at the track

    I would go for it......good bike to get out there and worse case you owe him 250 not that bad and you save your ride and possible that it would be much more thatn 250 if you crash it.. I would check the tires, change the gas and do a real good look over sice it hasnt run in a while.

    But ride it have fun....welcome to your new addiction

    Well your first post wasn't too clear...so I had to try to make something of it.

    You'll have more fun on the EX than the FZ.

    2nd . I did tony` 4 yrs ago on the fz1....I had a lot of fun but fear of destroying then new bike ,financial aspects of buying a house and time after having 2 kids i never did another till now.

    i loved it but could not justify not haveing the fz which i ride to dragon like every year and back and do a few overnighters on.

    looks like you answered your own question....take the ex....250.00 if you destroy it is not bad.

    you gotta do a lot to destroy an EX500. they can take a decent beating.

    You'll do just fine. It is just like any other bike that has a motor and wheels.

    He DID call me a 'meatwhistle'. Maybe just a note to his parents?

    Does it have Marchesinis? Those are worth more.

    if you can ride all those bikes you can ride an ex. May take you a bit to get comfortable on but you will be fine by session 3.
