    I think I finally decided on my track bike!


    Visited Ryan today at Hobbs auto, and he was showing me around between 4 race bikes they had. And if all works out over the next couple of weeks I'm hoping to be riding this at the track this up coming season. If you guys are ever looking for a bike, definitely hit him up.


    Not that I will have any money for upgrades for a while as all of it will be going towards better gear, but what do some of you recommend for an 06 gsxr? I think gearing would be my first up grade then suspension.

    No seriously though dude, you don't think those stickers are cool? And I didn't purchase yet, I hate to get my hopes up but I need to have a good portion of funds to come in over the next 2 weeks in order to buy it.

    Re: I think I finally decided on my track bike!

    why is the left clip on a good inch lower than the right?
    Did someone race it like that?

    No, just tires which I'll be switching anyways. But i think it will be good for me to get started on and to build up as I gain experience.

    Grats, I had this bike before the one I ride now. FYI, those forks don't look stock. My stock forks were gold colored. Just an observation here.

    Re: I think I finally decided on my track bike!

    Hobbs is a INS auction guy....buys crashed bikes and Fixes them, so make sure its got a clean title and isn't over 4K cause its not too clean....and sharkcycle in CT also has some smokin deals.....U might wanna check there from time to time..

    also the left clip-on isn't in the right place???? fairings look like they went through the wash and its def been down...

    and why are the SRAD decals doing on that???????

    It has been down no doubt about it. It dosn't have a clean title because of that. I'm sure A LOT of people's track bikes don't have clean titles though. Ryan is a good guy, I'm sure he'd much rather see me happy at the track then back at his place with a lemon.
