    This past Saturday I picked up my dedicated trackday/race bike. My 2011 Hayabusa is being retired from track days out of fear of doing any damage to Black Betty, and out of the fact that she has a lighter more nimble partner in crime to do the dirty work now...

    I present to you my 2005 Suzuki GSXR-750 previously owned and raced by Greg Williams "Cafe Racer Inc".

    Very nice! I just recently did my first track day on my 03 SV650 I picked up a couple of months ago! Although it rained most of the day, it was pretty fun! The track photographer didn't do pictures that day,though. My buddy who has a 2013 Busa and has taken it to the track a couple of times, bought a dedicated 03 GSXR 750 track bike for the same reasons as you! Enjoy!!

    I was just talking with a buddy today and saying if I ever got a track only bike I would like to get a GSXR 750. Way better then a 600 IMO.

    Nice bike you got there. Hope you never crash it - but better it than your Busa. Stay safe out there.

    I maybe going to a track this year and the only sport bike I have is my Busa. Oh well, maybe someday I will run across a deal to good to pass up.
    Until then I still have to use my Busa if I want to do a track day.

    Man its so much lighter, flicking the gsxr around the corners takes a lot less effort physically...at the end of the track day i was not dead on my feet like I usually am on my Hayabusa...so it definitely was a lot less physically demanding.

    Overall I love the new stable mate, "B" is a great addition and I absolutely love riding her...

    Heading to Hallett Raceway in Jennings Oklahoma May 29th, 2016.

    Update: things did not fair so well with this bike and its been returned to its original owner who gave me a full refund.
    Blown Valve Control Arm, noisy tick, bad fuel pump, broken clutch release spring all 5 hours from home at Hallett Raceway Oklahoma.

    Took them 4 weeks after the track day to finally say the issue then they offered me a full refund which I took.

    It has been replaced with a 2005 R6 pics to come along with video after I visit Putnam Raceway in Greencastle Indiana this coming weekend.
