I think he meant. They don't teach you advanced performance technique.

Exactly!? Riders that like to go "fast" on the street need to make sure they have the skills to go along with it, and the way to increase your skill set is learning High Performance Techniques at speed. The safest way to do that is at the Track that has proper supervisor and instruction.

running wide...

it not only effects what happens to you but those riding w/ you

back when i wrecked it was cause the guy i was riding w/ went wide ona 35mph turn (was posted speed) and we was going 35 too... he went wide hit an oncoming minivan, his bike bounced off and took my bike out...

if your thinkinging that running wide only effects you and you have to pay the consquinces your wrong it can effct others too...

I figure it's like a tightrope in the beginning - and the better you get, the wider the rope becomes. How many times? that must depend on luck. My once was enough - and lucky to be on a left turn without anything to hit. But 2000 bills later, I figure that's enough for me to know skillz aren't cheap. Track Days are cheaper and more fun - and that's why 2010 is track-year for me!

The faytevelle( spelling always gets me) ride is another good example of this statement.

When I bought My bike, my first ride I was following some experienced riders down a twistie back road. The pace was an intermediate pace, but being a noob, it seemed pretty fast for me. I went into a corner faster than my comfort level (and my skill level) and ran off the road. Luckily a car (or truck) had run off the road there and knocked down the fence (I'm guessing just a few days before, because the next weekend I did the same ride and the fence was fixed).

I got really lucky. Another new rider in the group wasn't so lucky.

That was definately a wake up call for me.

Luckily I met Cdill and ZX6 shortly after that and got into trackdays.

I truely believe trackdays saves lives. They teach you the skills to keep it in your lane / on the road if you are coming into a corner "hot".

Seems like there is a million left turns on our wed outtings too
If you are talking about left hand turns on the street it is because the road is crowned so left hand turns are off camber so the same amount of lean equals a less amount of turning.
