About the small motorcycle

Small race bikes are the most fun

Small racing motorcycles are the most fun! They also have a distinct advantage for the hobbyist racer. They’re inexpensive to buy and run. They sip fuel and don’t eat tires. Replacement parts tend to be less expensive and readily available, too. 

This particular small motorcycle is a 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300, which I purchased from another racer, who won a championship on it a few years ago. I’ve followed that up with three more this season!
