Right, so don't expect a lot of posts. This is the 3RD time I've tried to write this. Every time I try to insert an image or something else, I've been getting booted, blocked, and disconnected. "The wicked flee even when none pursue" - So it is with the internet (and everything else here). Try to link a photo? Must be exposing "non-harmonious" material. SOOO, now that that's out of my system :) *DING* Round three!! Just as the title says, this is a budget build. The priorities are as follows: 1. Spend as little money as is safely (or unsafely) possible 2. Make something that is fun to ride at the track 3. Use parts that are not a PITA to find in China Lets start with the second priority and a little back-history - I have been living in China for 4 years now and riding motorcycles (motorbikes for those on the wrong side of the pond the whole time. When I first arrived I met up with some guys who were into riding like I was and we have all through a series of events moved from one part of China to another. We now find ourselves in the southern city of Shenzhen which borders Hong Kong. As with many big cities in China, motorcycles are banned within the city limits. Problem is that the "city limits" are defined by the whim and mood of those who enforce such things (as are all other laws here). So it's REALLY hard to get your riding fix when it means having to leave the city only to be able to ride in urban wasteland. We then found that the local kart track allows bikes on the track. Cue first track day - This is my mate's Galaxy XTR250. A ton of fun around the track if not a little sloppy (for my street bike tastes).
