Maybe I'll pull over now.

What?

You know that people that take MSF have to pass a driving test that is much more difficult than the DMV to pass the MSF class right? That's why when they take their card of completion to the DMV they are exempt from taking the driving test there.

Well....I think track day riders should be exempt from the test too. And I didnt know that, cuz I didnt take MSF. Barely got my license. But when I ride with peeps, I dont ask if they have taken msf, I ask if they have done a track day.

I ask both. IMO both are equally important and very different. I would assume they don't let a track day expemt you from a driving test because while a track day may prove that you are capable of riding a bike on a closed circuit course, it doesn't prove your capable of riding a bike on public roadways. Avid street riders can learn alot at a track day and avid track riders can learn alot in MSF. I think many others on this site can attest to that too.

I dunno man. Can't imagine what I could learn in MSF that the manual didnt teach. That i DID NOT learn at teh track.

Furthermore, WTF is this.....is this the corect answer, cuz I missed it. Is this a true statement?

Push left, lean right, turn right.

hmm, I think it's push right, as in counter steer, lean right, and soo on.

Anyways,

yeah,
say your going 60 mph.
you push on your right bar, the bike falls to the right into the turn.
This only works at speed though, of course.
Once your at lean, steer as normal.
