You just came off as a little arrogant.......which I have little tolerance for, that's all. Sorry if you misunderstood.

If it's the one they have a clip on youtube of, then your fukin right. Geebus that thing is nasty........ I'll stick with good ole fashion instruction at the local trackdays.

Not sure if I'm in a place where I could bash it though......I'm not very "video" savvy either, plus it was probably made in like 1991........

Kenny Roberts book Techniques of Motorcycle Roadracing is really the only one w/ good advice.

TOTW is fluff.

Just go to Barne's & Nobel and sit there for an hour or two and read some of it.

I've saved a bunch of money doing that......but that was with RoadRacing World magazines and such......not thick azz riding books.
