X3 on Sumo track locations?
OVRP and Boxshop are both better as 250 tracks IMO, and they run SUMO in NJ as well... those 3 are closest for the new england guys.
I'm really unsure now what I want. I was dead set on a motored a week ago but now I think I might be getting in over my head. I know two things though. I'm uncomfortable on my gsxr and it's not very crash worthy. I could lOad it up with sliders and covers and maybe get a stock peg setup. That would get me some more rood and crash protection. I want a bike with track specific suspension but I do t know if it's worth spending the 1500 on a 13 year old bike or just getting rid of it and picking up something else. I wanted the sumo for more room and crash worthiness. I dunno what to do.
There's nothing wrong with wanting a chassis style that fits YOU, so if that means a tardy style mount, I'd go there.
If you're looking to race and be competitive, a motard is going to require time and money to keep in good shape.
If you're just looking to hoon it up at track days, a 'mild' motard like a CRF450X vs a built CRF450R should do fine without being as much of a grenade. A true street targeted mount like a DRZ400 will hold up even better with less maint, but it's heavier and even slower.
Well, I bought a KTM 520. I may convert it but I may still look for another street bike.
i know someone selling a YZ400 that used to be a tard race race bike. its been punched out a little and rebuilt with all GYT-R parts. its got dirt wheels on it now so you would need buy the wheel sets but i think hed sell the bike for about $1500...maybe less.
bike used to be raced at NHMS. i think ive got pics somewhere if youre interested
i think it used to belong to R7
edit: nevermind, saw you already bought one

I got a bike now. A ktm 520 exc. I'm unsure if I'm ging to convert it now. I am toying around with the idea of an sv or raising my seat height for more comfort.
