Bucket list motorcycle related

1. Go to the track an learn to ride better I am an ok street rider but I know there is alot of room for me to improve plus the track is a better spot to ride aggressive plus i wanna be able to get my knee down

2. Spend a week down at deals gap ridin that road an surroundin area.

3. Ride mullholland hwy an the canyons out that way.

4. Go to a MotoGp or AMA superbike race

5. Go to sturgis rally

I have done most of what you mentioned, repeatedly. Sturgis, you'll never catch me there.

Good list but wow, 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 ime ....

I spent 4 years of my life at the track after my first time. It hooked me large and most of my young spending money went that way. Check my sig pic. I do have some bragging rights now. lol. And it was an awesome time.

But I'm a crazy rider. Push it and go was my drug. Maybe your list is a better overall balance.

Remove getting your knee down and remove sturgis

We have the best track / racing instructors around and the thing that they all preach is focus on one skill set at a time from sighting braking breathing relaxing apexing maintanance throttle downshifting picking-up throttle on exit foot position nutrition hydration mental preperation head position hugging the tank loading the pegs E.T.C.

getting a knee down is something that maybe a result of time and happens when it happens, no-one ever puts it on an agenda as a drill. What is so cool about track school is when things all click you are calm and smooth no arm pump no oh shit moments just look and flow...
