my wife & i thoroughly enjoy our FZ-09s, & i think they would make great track bikes; however, i don't wish to butcher either of ours for such duty. instead, i would like to purchase a salvage / wadded one & fix it up for track duty. these bikes are so light anyway; after stripping off all the street gear, i'm sure the extra lightness would make one even faster. fun times! not looking to travel far to pick one up; we're in south-central arizona, between phoenix & tucson.
