This for the past few weeks I've been in miami visiting family etc. and i heard about a track day at Homestead Speedway so I went and found a bike shop that rents out track bikes. and i had my stuff shipped down here from wisc. I rented a Yamaha R6. I did it with a group called south florida tracktime or somethign like that. It wasnt a bad bike it was really fast espically with it having engine work done to it. I liked it. he also let me try his GSXR 600 i didnt like the gsxr at all. i felt very uncomfortable on it. but all in all i still like my rr better. Just thought I'd share my weekend.

Any fellow rr riders there? i saw a few 600rr's there

yeah yeah. i low sided it to. not bad. it was a slow low side. like a 30 mph low side. in a right hand turn. it got the windscreen (i dont know how, but snapped a lil piece off) right frame slider (saved the whole thing) and the right rear set. and this was on the R6. didnt get the pipe. or the body work. i was lucky. racing slick tires. track little wet from a previous rain. if anybody down in florida reads this you know what im talking about the short quick sudden rain showers.

205 for Sat. only. 350 for the rental of the bike and a 1000 crash deposit. i got the deposit back and i paid him 142 for the crash. so it wasnt to bad. kind of expensive. but it sure beats sitting up in Wisc. freezing.

Pretty cool that you found a shop that rents bikes.

So what was the sin? Nothing wrong with riding (and liking) other bikes. I actually like the R6 on track very much. Won't be trading in my 600RR though.

I love my 600rr to death. The R6 didnt feel right.

1000 they can keep that. That is way too much of a deposit to risk losing.
I got the deposit back and everything. I just paid him cash for the damages.

What year was the R6? ..just curious
It was a older model. I believe a 05
