The word tracker is derived from flat-track racing bikes. They’re a bit like scramblers and café racers in the sense that they are modified for performance. What sets a tracker apart though is the fact that they usually have stiffer suspension and lower ground clearance. A characteristic seat with a dirt-bike style rear fender prevents any gravel or dirt to stick to the riders back. The die-hard trackers will remove the front braking system entirely much like a real flat-track racing bike. The flat-track racing scene is huge in the United States, but it’s slowly gaining momentum in Europe too.
