How many track days did you do and how many of them did you crash on?

I reckon I've done between 10 and 15 and either 3 or maybe 4 crashes, which is not a great ratio I don't think. although, they were all within my first 5 or 6 track days though.....

Sounds like good advice, get a rat bike for trackdays, one that is in good mechanical nick but you don't have to worry about the look of too much.

you know it makes sense, or if you can't/don't want a second bike at least buy some cheap nasty fairings that you can chuck on it for your track days etc.

This has now been sold, I took on board what quite a few people told me - it was too good for the track, so has now been replaced with this.....
