Not good Mac. Hope you heal fast and that the bike isn't a complete write off. Duc parts are expensive.

Meh... part of riding, and especially track riding.

I did my first trackday at the beginning of the month and kinda got hooked. Signed up for the next open lapping day right when I got home, which was yesterday.
Soon as I'm sure I can get the parts in time, I plan on signing up for the local race organization's roadrace school happening at the end of the month.
This shit is way more fun than the street

I should... probably not do that so much lol. This shit isn't cheap to fix.
Current plan is bring the Pani back to 100% and then get an R6 or something to throw around on the track. Something that has a bit better parts availability and doesn't cost so much when it goes down.

Gonna part out the Busa, I think. I had my fun building it, and that was that. That engine is worth a track bike I'd reckon.

Do all that except the R6 part. Throw cheap plastic or track parts on the Duc and enjoy it the way it was meant to be enjoyed. You didn't like riding it on the street anyway. Right?

Good news that things didn't go worse for you, Mac.

Never done a track day, but I know what you mean about the street stuff. I love my FZ, but if I ever run across a good deal on a XR650R I may be done with "street" bikes.

Yeah, I've been thinking about that and it really wouldn't be a bad option. Remember I got that bike at a Copart auction, so relatively cheap and already on a salvage title. Would profit a little but still couldn't sell it for much even in perfect shape.
As far as Ducs go, it's the perfect candidate for a track machine.

But 1: I like having a pretty bike on the street sometimes. Vain, maybe, but whatever.
And more importantly 2: I'm strongly considering racing next year. Like for-realsies racing. And the 600 class is a bit more novice than the 1000 class, which probably wouldn't be a bad thing for my first season.
And again, parts cost/availability.

Running a 600 would be because "look at all these reasons why."
Running the 1199 would be more "eh, why not."

Hypermotard 1100S the weight-shavening.
Bandit 1200 cafe/fighter that will never get finished at this rate.

get a motard racing is nowhere near as expensive (nor are trackdays).

I can do a trackday for $60. the bike burns way less fuel too.

another good option if they're popular in your local racing org

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.
