:welcome: In a perfect world we would all have at least 2 bikes. 1 for street and 1 for track. If you have friends that do both and you enjoy doing both, it's pretty difficult to give up one 100% of the time for the other.

Ditto.

Yeah, this is the second year I've toyed with taking mine off the street. I hate swapping everything out for a track day, but love so much having my supersport on the street.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

Sportbiker's tips on what not to do when you want to sell something:
    Post an artistic picture where your bike takes up 5% of the area.
    "Price firm but willing to negotiate."

Three motorcycles:

Street riding
Trackdays/Racing
Motocross/dirt riding



Or, if you are like how I was a few years ago:

Street riding
Trackdays
SuperMoto
Motocross
Trailriding/Harescrambles
Pitbike


At one point in time, I was considering getting into ice racing. But, at the time, I was anti-winter and couldn't see doing it.

Now, if you want to talk about "bikes", I'm down to three bikes (used to have significantly more). :neener:
