There's a debate raging about whether we buy the RR to ride on the street or the track (see link below). Although this site doesn't represent every owner, a poll might give us an idea.

Why did you buy a sport bike?

I got mine mostly to commute to work, but I also like to head out to the mountains on the occasional weekend. I didn't worry about the specs of different sport bikes much and chose the RR based on the fact that it was more comfortable for me, the dealer (authentic Honda) was helpful and I liked the style of the bike.

I just sold my truck, so i only have my bike now. I love it, low cost, cheap gas. the only thing is if i loose it thru accident or theft i dont have full coverage. But the odds are for me i think.

TWO baby, Two Wheels Only.

I definately wanna do a few track days this season tho.

If I had a track close by it would be on the track every chance i got and i would live in my car to fund it...........but i don't have a track so it's on the streets with lots of canyons.

Street. Did the track thing with my GSXR 400RR Slingshot back in the day. Maybe I'll go back someday...preferably with a GSXR 600RR. I'm diggin' the new all black color scheme :)

my current 1000RR was to be a track bike (mostly) but my 954 was stolen so...

Most likely it will remain mostly my streetbike and the '07 600RR will become a track bike.

Mine is 99% track. I have a 954RR for the street. I do occasionally take it on the street but I'm lucky enough to have a "spare" bike for street duty

Mostly street but hit the hills and canyons every clear weekend and sometimes hit the hills during the week at lunch time.

Bought it for the streets but I think I'm gonna convert it to track only duty this summer and get a F3 in streetfighter trim or something like that for the streets.

90% canyons, 10% street/commute now. but when I bought it, it was the other way around...

Doesn't make sense.

"Street" and "Canyons" are the same in my book.

Other: For the canyons with occasional track days.
