How Do I Start?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am 17 and want to race motorcyle professionally. I feel that I am in my element while riding a bike, it doesn't matter what it is, small, large, two-stroke, four it just feels right. I have no track experience but would like to race in AMA or perhaps in a few years GP. Where would I start? Any good sites i.e. craigslist.com for maybe picking up a bike that I can take to a track? Thanks.

best way to start is by going to racetrack and see if you got anything on it... self-believe and confidence is surely needed, but it is not easy to become a pro-rider...

 

btw... I want to race professionally also. ( and so does thousands of other riders)... Riding and racing is the only element that works for me (too), but sadly it is not enough so I´ve better keep my day job for now :D

 

"if just could make a living racing motorcycles, that would be the coolest thing known to man" - K.S

and I totally agree.....

Yeah only 20 or so guys actually make a living off of it in the world right? I'm working on it and if I fail I will have to get a day job but the love for the sport will always be there. :D

I'd suggest the cheapest form of racing that will allow you to do as much as you can. If you buy a new 600 and race that, tires alone can be hard to afford for a race weekend. That, get some schools in, and wear out the TWIST OF THE WRIST books.

 

Best,

Thanks man, I'm working on the financials right now.

 

Some guys would get a little 125 gp bike, it takes a bit to learn the maintenance (not that hard), but you used to be able to get one pretty cheap ($2-3 I thought).
