Fastrack Riders Trackdays

As sportbikes continue to evolve, they are drifting away from versatile streetbikes and toward sharper-edged machines developed to excel on the racetrack. Some OEMs even claim to have built a racebike first, then made changes to transform them into streetbikes with the requisite EPA and DOT regulations.

This is most evident in the liter-sized sportbike category. Revving any of these inline-Fours to redline in first gear will bring a rider dangerously close to 100 mph and there are still five gears to go! Although they are competent enough on the street, exploring their huge performance potential on public roads is a recipe for disaster.

That's why is a strong proponent of trackdays. Not only can you ride way faster at a track than is possible on the street, the consequences of overcooking it are far more benign than the road environment of gravel, curbs and oncoming cars.
