Track,Not Really

Doing a track ride isn't for everyone and also it can do more damage than good.To spend that kind of money and having your bike go down is not cool,or taking what you learned and applying it to the street's just to go down on the like's of Moholland to show off,well you get it.It's simple,learn to use throttle and brake along w/ lots of Common Sense..imo

A track day is fun way to get those endorphins flowing really. I did some during weekends but it's quite expensive; mostly because of the fuel, tires,etc.

The goal of doing a track day is not to train you how to attack Mulholland faster. What you learn at a track day is how to get the most out of your bike, which is very handy in certain situations, like an unexpected descending-radius turn. Knowing how to lean the bike all the way over can save your life. Doing a track day doesn't remove the need for the rider to exercise good judgment!
