    Riders Choice Trackday May 9th Shanny - Fabi

    Right?! There is a ton of grip in wet conditions if you know how to alter your ride. What are the main things you should change with your riding when conditions are wet? You already mentioned being smooth which is paramount, but what else needs to change in order to avoid crashing in the wet?

    Need some advice

    Love that you are seeking info on how to be a better and safer rider. I think those options are fine or you could look into a reputable riding school for some further instruction and to help build some confidence. There are many to choose from :). I'm a coach with the California Superbike...

    To train or not to train?

    I like how you say that you will continue to train and reflect because I think some people think that they can go to one riding school or take one series of schools and then they are done, like they put in the time and learned some stuff and now they don't have to work on it anymore....but I...

    To train or not to train?

    Yes, conversation starter :) When I'm not riding I like to discuss riding technique and find out more about how people think and talk about motorcycle riding techniques and skills. It's also helpful to talk to groups of people about riding in hopes of encouraging them to ride as well and safely...

    To train or not to train?

    Is it important to get formal training for riding motorcycles? What kinds of training have you had and how did it help your riding?

    Learning a track fast?

    Like this, especially the part about having an objective and specific goals every single session. We all know that when you go out and just try and ride fast, it never works out, lol! So, what kinds of goals could/should you have? What kinds of things might you go out and practice each...

    Learning a track fast?

    Exactly! Just following someone doesn't solidify the track for you unless you put some active attention on learning it for yourself. I get frustrated when I go to a track and someone starts telling me what to look at and where to turn etc....makes no sense to me unless I start finding my own...

    Learning a track fast?

    All good suggestions here but how do you take what you see via you tube videos/video games or even someone towing you around the track and solidify what you are seeing so that you can do it on your own? For example, someone above said to draw the track which is something I used to do when...

    Learning a track fast?

    When you go to a new track, how do you learn it? What steps do you take to try and remember the layout and what do you find works best for learning it quickly and why? :)

    Lap timer etc.

    Hope you enjoy total control! I like your idea for the lap timer to garner some more info on your own riding but I think that waiting longer will allow you time as the rider to pay attention to FEELING what the bike is doing more than reading what a lap timer is telling you. You should be able...

    Lap timer etc.

    Absolutely agree with this. The thing with lap timers is that it changes your focus from riding well to trying to ride FAST. As most good riders know and understand, the fastest laps are always the ones that don't actually FEEL the fastest. Smooth laps, with good lines, proper body position...

    Do Less?

    I often tell my students (at the California Superbike School) that they should DO LESS when riding. What do you think this means, or in what ways do you think riders work too hard and do too much on their bikes? Misti
