    +1 on racing up. It's loads of fun. It's amazing how well SV's do in the "2" class. Well, amazing to me.

    in the novice ranks it's more about the rider, not the machine

    X Expert #58 more haste ......less speed.

    You seem to have inferred that I once had it to begin with. I always used to gauge my place "from last".

    The "run over" comment was because according to this weekend's schedule, the starter races are paired with amateur races, including unlimited superbike.

    Stop worrying so much. You're making me look laid back. We can't have that.

    I just raced my first weekend at the last round, and did a bloggish post about it if you want to check it out...I was on an sv and raced both the 3 and 2 classes:

    Don't forget to sign up for, and take, the basic license course thru Penguin (you probably already know that)

    After the class, if you feel like it, introduce yourself around the center 15 garage area and mention you are a rookie and on BoRn...plenty of help and support will come your way, I'm sure.

    Who's worrying? I'm just trying to get an idea of what kind of track time I can squeeze out of a weekend, what class I should prep for, and what bike would lead me in that direction.

    This is all just in the daydream phase anyway. Last time I bought a race bike, I sold it three years later without ever having even starting it.

    I'm poking fun at you, and myself. Mostly myself. But a little bit you too.

    Bring credit card. Sign up for every race you can. (All the 3's, 2 of the 2's.) Leave broke and happy.

    Speaking of which-- I know "cheap" and "racing" are typically oxymorons, but I figure the cheaper I can do it, the more I can do. What's the budget bike of choice these days? Back in the day, all the broke guys and cheapskates ran EX500s. Are they still around, or would one be better off with an SV or even formula 300?
