Tracks have turns like the streets that you ride on. You will learn/practice to take the curve/turns and it's safer to do it on the track because you don't have all the elements of surprise like the street.

Riding the track will allow you to explore the limits of your motorcycle. The advantage to this on the street is that, when faced with a panic situation, you'll know just how hard you can dynamite those brakes and successfully stop or how much harder you can actually turn a bike in without it crashing. It just gives you more accident avoidance options as opposed to thinking "omg, I'm about to crash, I can't <insert x> any more than I am already." When the reality is, you can.

Hopefully by going to the track, you will build confidence in your machine to do its job. By that I mean lean that bish!!!

If corners aren't your thing, you probably dont trust leaning the bike much. I highly suggest you do a trackday sir, just say bye bye to your moneez!

Self awareness. As RacerX said, They will show you just how much you suck.
