Hey everyone new guy here sayin hi wanting to learn all I can about racing and bikes!

Hey everyone I've been riding since February this year, got a track day under my belt and can't wait to hit as many as I can learning all I can to have fun on two wheels and hopefully one day (in the near future) get licensed to race and compete! Any tips or techniques I will gracefully accept thanks!

Welcome to MH! Just take your time and work on being smooth. Keep in mind the street is not the track and have fun.

Seat time is key...get a ton of it...Get the right information from the right people too! Lots of opinions out there. Most of it is preference. The best advise I can give is take your time and make sure you learn the fundamentals so that you can progress the right way and do this for the long haul...Sign up for as many track days as possible and learn the tracks.

Competition is different for each person. Some just race to have fun, some to win it or bin it as they say....Anyhow wanna win with a smile...just remember to have fun and you'll be fine.
