Helping to Sponsor WERA Racer:

Megan Draven

Megan has been riding motorcycles since 1991 when she successfully completed the Motorcycle Safety Foundation training. In addition to racing, she enjoys day rides, commuting, and sport-touring on her Honda CBR929RR street bike.

So what does it take to get a motorcycle ready for the race track?

Pretty simple looking question. What work is involved with converting an everyday street bike into a track ready Superstock motorcycle? In the next few paragraphs, I hope to give you a basic idea of the changes that are made, and just what is involved in doing that for a 2001 Suzuki SV650S motorcycle as I am about to begin that process for the 2004 WERA Southeast Sportsman racing season.

How long has Megan been racing?

At the beginning of the 2003 season, Megan began racing in WERA. Jurassic Bike furnished her with a track-prepped 1993 600cc Yamaha Seca II to field in the D Superstock/D Superbike, Formula 2, and Clubman classes. She graduated from Ed Bargy Race School and surprised everyone, mostly herself, by earning a podium finish her first weekend racing.

When Megan isn’t racing, you can find her behind the parts counter at BMW Motorcycles of Atlanta.
