3. will be riding to other cities and states, so better learn now than be caught slipping.
4. it is not sterilized like a track
5. all your flags are under your helmet
6. you can avoid folks with BBB syndrome...Biggest Baddest Bike


I never said that I was learning to ride fast on the freeway, ....I said that was going to concentrate on handling on 610 since the traffic flows and changes at a higher speed than the Beltway which I have ridden for months.

4. Please go to the track. It's not sterilized. It's got more addicts than MLK blvd, not cause it's sterile, but cause it's real, raw, and the BBR takes all (biggest, baddest rider)
5. All your whats?

You are taking a decent approach, it's just that 610 has a really bad rap on this board. If you'd said I-10 no one would have responded. 610 get's beat on due to the Wednesday night madness from PP1.

"6. you can avoid folks with BBB syndrome...Biggest Baddest Bike"

You are going to deal with that more on the public roadways than at a track day.

Meaning that there are all kind of hazards on the road and you have to learn how to react and deal with it.
5. all your flags are under your helmet
Red flags, yellow flags go off in your brain so you learn when you should stop, slow, use caution, etc, depending on the ever changing situations on the road ahead of you. Nobody there to wave it for you. So you don't get a habit of looking for one.
6. you can avoid folks with BBB syndrome...Biggest Baddest Bike
The ego thing that some folks can't avoid in the love affair with their bike/mods. I cruise at 80mph and need to slow down, but wonder what speeds other run on these runs to the forest, state parks etc. A pack of 20+ bike running at 55mph, c'mon now.

I ride with a tag, and now my bikes dead unfortunately do to a engine issue. However, I noticed a HUGE increase in my tolls in the car. I whitelined when I safely could do so and in doing so reduced my tolls to probably 1/2 of what they would normally be.

I was always careful and figured the HCTRA owed me for using their road so much.
