Default who here races?

Does anybody else here race?

3ish years ago I picked up a supermoto trackbike, last year I started racing it on kart tracks.

First race of the season is this weekend. Not sure if I'll manage to race, probably cracked a rib doing flat track Monday. I'll be there, but it might hurt too much to be worth racing.

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.

Bikes: naked SV1000 with all the possible bling, WR450SM street legal, 450XCF SM trackbike

I plan to do local series when my bike will be finally assembled. Would love to do minimotos, but nothing nearly.

Wanna talk mattson into doing that endurance race kimmo did a while back

I really wouldn't want street equipment on my racebike. More weight, more shit to break.

can you insure factory SMs?

Bike racing is unusually expensive around here. Even track days are crazy. To run track days you have to buy a membership to an organization ( there are a few) which runs $400-500 per year, then you pay another $250-400 per day when you actually go to the track. Kinda hard for me to justify that. If you wanted to go every weekend you're pushing $50k /year.

But I drag raced cars years. $25 at the game when you show up. Sometimes I have a desire to build a drag bike, but it's a pretty dead sport in this area. We're losing tracks.

Really been wanting to join the harescramble guys but I'm a big ole pussy and keep making excuses. I think it would be the most fun.
