I've been riding a while and I ride like a dumbass sometimes, I guarantee my track bike will hit the ground. That SV seems waaaay too cheap for the money invested in it, but would also be 100% ready to go. I'm digging the super cheap older 600 idea just for the extra power and grin factor. I know this track looks pretty hairy with blind rolling corners, but riding a lot of Missouri backroads has me pretty prepared for last minute and mid corner line adjustments. I appreciate all the input guys, keep it coming in. If I could find an RS250 or something similar for reasonable money, I'd be all for it. I'm currently working on 2 different older Chevy trucks that I own so I don't have a huge budget.
