Keith Code Superbike School segment

Me and another MH'er went out for a ride in Brookshire... I had the GoPro on my bike trying to keep up with him so we could make a good vdo. Well the GoPro just showed how much I suck in turns. Today I was searching advance turning techniques. Ive posted some vdo in the past but I think these are helpful as well. I need to increase my entry speed so I wont shortin my turning radius...1:41

We are a little spooked about wrecking on the track (or anywhere else for that matter). If you ever stop being a little skeered then it's time to take a break.
The thing to remember is that it's not, on the day you are there, a "racetrack", it is a road that loops around on itself. You are not there to race, just there to ride a cool twisty road that is predictable in condition and safe in design.
You should not think that there is anymore reason you would crash doing a trackday than if you were going riding on the street. In many ways there is less reason for you to crash because, there is no unpredictable traffic (except other riders and at least they are going the same direction)and no unexpected gravel or debris.
So overcome your fear and come do a trackday, just come with the attitude of a student and your life will never be the same.

It more about having to replace parts then me getting hurt. Not saying my bike is more important then me, some may say differ. I enjoy riding and dont want to be without the ride for ??? time. I do see a track day in the near future. GFTW first, need leathers and Im ready, have boots, gloves, helmet, and clean underwear.

Believe me...he knows all this already...He was my pit boss last year during my 4 track days and all I could do was tell him how he needs to do a track day....ive been on his case about doing one to help his riding technique and share the joy we call trackdays
