helps build up the confidence doesn't it?

IMO i believe confidence in yourself and the bike has more to do with riding than anything. if you're not confident that your bike can make a turn......fear will hold you back. pass a few more people and build that confidence level up. the speed will come.....you'll know when you start haulin .

for me, it wasn't really a transition.....i had a crash in january....lost all my confidence and everything i learned....about 2-3 trackdays later...HAULIN again. feels good. i took a pretty fast spill at TWS (Texas World Speedway) this past monday....thought i would lose my confidence again.....but i got back on, and i was EVEN FASTER. hahaha

You sound like Eric!! Confidence, confidence, confidence that is what he kept trying to drill into me! I got some new tires and that made a huge difference! I have only been riding a couple so I am pretty pleased with my progress! I am trying to take it slow so that I don't crash! I like my pretty bikes to much!! Hopefully by the time I do the 26th and the 2nd! I will be able to play more with the big boys! I can't say enough how much I enjoy riding with all of you out there! :notworthy :notworthy :notworthy I learn something each time one of you hauls past me. I love just being out on the track! See ya the 16th!

At the rate you are improving, you won't need many advantages

eric helped me to gain confidence after my crash in january. so i'm only advising what a talented rider once advised me.

slow or fast.....i enjoy everybody's company out at the track. MSRH is like my home away from home....my 2nd family if you will.

see you on the 16th boys and girls
