I'm going to harp on the sv650 one more time for whoever is looking for an economical track bike
Cheap to buy. Everything you can do to tinker with them, particularly suspension wise, is well documented. Fast enough to keep up except for maybe on big straights. Slow enough to force you to learn from your mistakes! Easy on tires. Plentiful parts availability. Handles great.
Oh, and fuel injection if you get one from 03 on up.

Stupid cheap, some of the best handling bikes ever produced for the public, and they are still fast.
99-02 was notorious for the chassis flex you speak of. Yamaha strengthened everything significantly in '03 and gave it fuel injection.
03-05 is best for cheap R6 imo. 05 had inverted forks.

Enduro alaska! Those guys win for cheeky and fun.
Is anyone using a tech spec or stomp grip type tank pad material? I think im going to try that out this year. The HT moto stuff looks nice. I like the colors.
