I would love tips and Scrapp is right about my riding expirence. I want a place where i can practice my leans I'm scared on the streets cause if dirt rocks traffic and so on. Scrapp, we've been riding a lot man. The questions is when ar you gonna come out !!! I've tried leaning very aggresively on the streets but i really need an open area so my mind is clear and I'm not worring about the things around me.

Yes the free session for the picnic will be a very mellow affair, as most will not be in full leather with the rest of the proper gear. If you do have all your gear, lok me up and I'll see about getting you on for a session at speed. Kind of like a crack dealer.................My name is Buck and I deal Track. Want some? The track is definately where you need to be "practicing" you lean. I still can't believe after all the posts on so many different board about deaths, and serious injuries that some guys still insist on rippin' up the streets. 99% it will not be your fault, ......poor drivers, debris on the road etc. Even on the track I take my first two laps real easy looking for debris that has gotten kicked up on the track. One rock, pebble, dust patch, etc and it's a long slide to a stop if you are lucky enough not to hit something solid. Take it to the track my friend, it's what your bike was meant to do.
