Ok, so I am attempting to decide between what bike to get. I am looking at a still new on showroom floor 04 ZX-12R (SWEET, but not a track bike) and Fengler's (I might have goofed the name) 97 TLS for a track bike. I would really love to get my hands on a NEW ZX12 as they are just about gone....but I really want to get a track bike too as I really want to do some track days.....:banghead damn the decisions.
So, in your opinions...what do you think?

if you already have a road 'bike then go for a track-only 'bike, that's what I'd do anyway :O

Why not track the 02 GSXR750? It would be perfect for the job I'd think, then use your TLR for the street and ya don't even need another bike:lol

have fun

You know how hard it was for me to keep quiet on the dirt bike side of things?

I was rather suprised it didn't come up in your post. I thought you might have gotten ill or something.

So your options are track the TLR and get a 12R for the street or use the TLR for the street and get something for the track I guess?

have fun

I'm going to go with the majority and say get a 750 for the track. Really, 96 and up depending on how much you want to spend. There was a nice 00 for 3500 locally recently, and my best friend I used to race with is back racing on one, loves it and dropped 3 seconds a lap his first day compared to his very trick TLR. Course, he's also got a 300, 625smc and a couple smaller ones for his kids...damn microsoft money ;-)

or, get a motard instead.

well I went to test out the ZX-12R and I think I can cross that one out of the thoughts. I tried and tried and it just doesn't feel right...maybe I have been riding the TL too long but it seemed that the zx's tank was just too long. really stretches out the arms. So I have talked to a guy last night and he just might be able to get me another TLR that I can put on the track......YEAH BABY YEAH! So we will see.
