Planning on buying a R6 or R1 track bike to take classes and do some track days. I really truly enjoy motorcycles and I want to get to know how to handle them, sport and cruiser alike, and all the tips and tricks one could learn from instructors and other motorcycle veterans that love the sport/hobby as much if not more than I do. It interests me, and if I can save up to buy the bike and take the classes thats what I want to do and that is the plan. Also significant other approved, that was my first step lol.Say what . . I mean . . . what track bike?
i knew the avon ultra 2 looked bigger than the bridgestone 0202 haha - cheers prof great effort as everHAHA You Always Say That . . . no worries . . . it'll be great if you post 'em!
I wasn't thinking of making one big document. Maybe later if its helpful.

by the way the ultra 2 did real well in swiss'land at 2300 metres in the rain and on cobbled hair pins....big thumbs up from me - only time it wanted to go sideways was uphill on wet road from lights in france when i took a big hand full for a mo...haha
A warning about that 200/50 ZR 17 Metzeler that is listed :
Although it is listed the same as our stock size, the one we have has higher sidewalls and on a stock height bike does not handle well. When leaned over in the turns you run out of tire ; ie. tend to drive beyond the edge of the tread! Not a good feeling.
It seems to handle ok for my wife's bike which is lowered ... but even on it , you have zero chicken strips because you are riding right to the edge.
it was something the german guys said about the metzler last year - the 200 was bad for mileage and grip ...not liked generally in germany anyway - but funnily enough the 240 was a real success particularly on mileage....go figure -Does anyone want to add the info for any other REAR Warrior tires?
