  • Talk to me about track days

    So basically in spring/summer next year im thinking of buying a cheapish bike around 1000 and taking it on some track days at my local circuit (darley moor)

    could anyone point me in the right direction at what i should be looking to buy i.e spares/costs/equipment??

    Thanks in advance

        I see where your coming from, some good advice to be fair, bikes can be dangerous and not to be taken lightly

          Tbh so can cars, bikes are only as dangerous as the people that ride them, however i know you get the occasionally idiots who ride dangerously hence why i want to do it on track (safely) ive had my fair share of bikes to be honest anyway
          i fully rebuilt a aprilia rs250 when i was 15 and passed my test on my 18th birthday also had a few gixxer 600s and a zx9r just wanna go down the track route now
