It's not the size of the bike as much as the size of the track. Like someone said, you can beat a formula 1 car in a race around your living room sofa.

My point is as far as bigger bikes go, the straightaways giveth and the corners taketh away. Blessed be the small bikes. This is from the Bible, I think.

Warning on a 300 could NOT beat warning on a 600 on tracks like Chuckwallah, Butonwillow, or even smaller tracks like Streets of Willow. Maybe small tracks like a kart track but even then, I'd still give an edge to warning on a bigger bike.

Edit: But warning on an NSR50 would beat both warning on a 300 and warning on a 600 at gokart tracks like willow, adams, and grange. =)

I'm in LA but haven't had much time to do any trackdays or canyons due to work, school, and family but my wife is thinking of getting me a Turkeydaz spot. Not sure which day but that's like a 90% go.

Nice work. I break up my days between the 300 and a CBR600RR. Next year the track is doing a 300 racing club, like Team Promotion. We'll see what happens with that.

I really forgot how much fun it is overtaking the 600/1000's, there were a few people at the track that packed up early because they couldn't handle a 300 running circles around them lmao
