One word describes the difference, COMMITMENT.

Thanks guys. The commitment might be a mental problem. Safer than the street by all means. Has been fun even with the few offs. Two mechanical and one a bad rider with poor decision on my part. I need my YSR 50 fixed so I can practice on the go kart tracks. Private classes are expensive and hard to get a hot track this time of year.

Looks really nice :smt004

Training on the gokart track reminds me back to 2013 where I had the opportunity to ride a TZM and NSR50 on a gokart track in Japan.

They were really professional there, with slicks and tire warmers :smt003

Was great fun, at least the same as with the R1.
On the other hand much lower financial and health risk because of the lower speeds.

Fix your YSR50 and have more track day fun :smt006

Did this indoor event right yesterday:
http://www.teamls.de/events/jedermann-s ... nd-ablauf/

Was unexpectedly good. Especially considering that it's an extremely challenging endurance for old farts like me (guess I was the only +50 rider).

They offer 250 4 stroke Kawas with 28 HP. If you crash, they charge just 10Eur.

That looks like fun stuff. Colin Edwards has a school near me. My ankle is to bad for it so never have gone. I am looking at buying two go karts to get my need for speed. BE SAFE

Here is Colin's school with my man ROSSI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-90Fg1ufM4
