i'm thinking more and more about wanting to push my riding envelope, whether it be on the track or in a parking lot doing stunts/handling skills. the issue i face is one of not wanting to crash or put down the current bike.
on one side of the equation i would prefer to pick up an older beater bike or track bike to practice on so there are no worries when i eventually drop it. however space and my toy budget are limited at the moment.
on the other side i will be limited in how far i can progress if i'm always playing within a safe boundary.
what to do?
