Keep it streetable or just track?

Ok Since I've fawked my fairings up again. I got two options. Make it strictly track or keep it for the street and track. help me decide. With either option I will be shipping it back to the states to my parents house to keep it in their garage until I'm back to the states for duty. help me decide

This is what I would do...and what I will next season.
get a cheap stripped cbr and build myself a track bike
then I might take the track bike on street with quick lights assembly just a few times.

If you are thinking of commuting... get two bikes

2 bikes is always the way to go, but some people can barely afford 1 bike.

If you make it track only your going to kick yourself when you want to take it out on the street.

I guess it really comes down to how often do you have it on the street and how often do you have it on the track.

How much fun can you have on the street without breaking the law? I asked myself that and thats how my 08 got turned to track only. Gonna build a stunt bike next year tho so i can ride a little on the streets and have fun in lots.

I'm trying to decide this for myself. I'm gonna save up and buy a cheap commuter bike and make my RR track only.

Sharkskinz street upper and track bodywork. Best of both worlds and only one bike to maintain

Good points. Altho it would be nice to have one for the street and one for the track, its not always affordable for everyone. I still ride the street quite frequently but hit the track every couple of months. A good compromise is to keep it streetable while having extra parts for the track. Buy some cheap trackplastics and good tracktires for when you hit the track, then have a second set of street plastics you can slap on when u feel the need to ride around the streets.

Well, right now ill say dual purpose, but id love to have a track specific bike. Then have another bike for street. Im sure most people feel that way.
