      A fast rider is a fast rider. Street, track, probably even dirt. 1000cc mega-sport or 50cc chinese pit bike.

      Acclimate to the bike and the rider will rip. I seen it happen.

      I imagine it varies by track, but I know the car line around the track I race at is pretty different than the bike line.

      Be warned, the track thing is a slippery slope. First you do a track day because, why not. Just gotta try it.

      Then you buy a used, beat to hell track toy.

      That's awesome. 'Round here if you helped yourself to an auto-x course you'd probably be arrested for trespassing or having excessive fun without a permit or some such.

      If you've still got it by the time my VFR sells (read: hell freezes over), we might talk. Maybe.
