  2. First Track Bike - Building a machine

    Hey Guys/Gals!

  6. How many miles is too many?

    I'm looking to get a starter track bike for around $3500 and have been looking at some options but the bikes have around 20k miles. Found some already set up track bikes with around 6k on some forums but none near Illinois so I've been using craigslist for some cheap street bikes that I can...

  8. If you were in my shoes, what would you do?

    The ZX6R
    I've got a 2007 zx6r and haven't done much with it aside from cosmetics. I'm hoping to turn it into a not-to-perfect track bike over the winter. I wanna start with some basic stuff and then maybe get more technical towards the spring. I need some advice on where to get started and what to do...
