Those bike looks too nice to turn into track day bikes.  Unless the goal is to have a nice street bike that is tracked upon occasion.  

For the former, I'd look at a salvage or auction bike.  For the later, it's a trade off between style, performance and cost that only the buyer can know.  I'd like to take my Ducati on a track day or two but like my Greenie, it's a street machine, not a track bike.

Exactly... get something that you won't mind destroying. It'll cost less and if you have a change of heart you can walk away.

Yes thats me, my primary track bike is a GSXR1000 K7 (2007) I use that for Phillip Island and secondary Island bike is a Ducati 1198. My 2003 Ducati 1000DS at the small and tight Broardford track. The

Yes the DS is a nice bike and I've used it a few times at Phillip Island as well as the tighter Broardford. I've done a few mods to it as well. Its a nice ride and a favourite of mine although they ar


Bet the brain is on high gear  :rasta:   and I woud think more fun with a $ 2000 SV 650, reving the H out of it. I know I woud hated to mess up that SD1000 upside down and. The goal, probably to see how fast you can take a corner, and that involves some fall of's acording to some English wisdom.  Just my humble op.  Yes IPA time

Fun banter!

An ‘04 DS would be great, because even if track days become too hard to reliably make  (which has been the norm in my life.... I need something like a ski area season pass, where u show up when u can), it’s still a beautiful machine to have.   I doubt I’d ruin it, and if I did, another Ds can be had if needed.  Sounds slightly sacrilegious, but we know it’s true.

if i got serious with track riding, which is unlikely with my work schedule, I’d be more serious about an 848.😎.  Hopefully it doesn’t come to that :->

This looks very nice. I have one of these single seat units in red brand new ( the original dual seat is still used)and a CF front cowl unpainted new as well plus a spare tank and second hand fairings in various colours. The plan was to have a spare set of bodywork in red as that was my favourite colour for them when I bought it in 2012 but as time has passes I actually like my yellow better. Too may red ones around I guess.
