      But honestly. How often do you REALLY see cops on your regular commute?

      • Well, I need to start an update to the build...a "fix-it".
        I might not get to it right away, but here are some things I need to do:

        right rearset\footpeg - broke. Poss frame bend at mount tabs
        right brake pedal - not repairable
        brake lever - broke
        brake reservoir mount - bent, needs replacement
        fairing stay - may just be bent - some stock tabs not repairable
        gauge cluster - need to verify they work, took a hit. Dirt inside.
        right lower fork leg is broke in half
        right fork tube - need to check, prob bent when the leg broke
        right fork damping rod - check for bend
        Race Tech emulators - verify they look OK after 'the' event
        left fork tube - need to check for bend
        check triples for cracks \ twist \ bend
        check steering stem for cracks
        rear subframe (actually part of the frame) - looks tweaked. might be able to get a pipe and twist it back.
        front tire soaked in fork oil - replace
        brake pads - soaked in fork oil - replace

        • Front end upgrade?

          • It would be similar in costs and I'd want to stay SS legal.
            i think it will go back to street trim and pull some of the goodies out.

                • Hey Spoot in 2019 ultralight, amateur is separated from expert now. (about time!) You could fix it back up and chase a few plates.

                  • Yeah but they'll most likely be running N300s right?

                    • Well yeah but at least amateurs don't have to be up against Drew Jankford and Bruce Barry. I wish they were split up back when I was racing.

                          here is my answer...

                          Separate into Amateur & Expert Divisions:
                          300 SUPERSPORT, 300 SUPERBIKE 500 SUPERSPORT, 500 SUPERBIKE, 500 GT & Moto 3

                          • They probably recognized that those divisions aren't going to grow unless they were split. Amateurs really have no reason to enter if the grid is full of experts collecting podium spots.
