Well I believe im a few years younger then alot of you guys (28) been thinkin about it alot an ive got a bunch of stuff id like to do within the next 2-3years

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

Im sure there is more but i cant think right now. Any ideals of other good roads to ride or things to do motorcycle related

What are others bucket list??

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.

IOM TT RACE'S ARE A MUST...... I am yelling sorry. I get right fired up about the TT's. I was hooked when my father introduced me to them in '89... I am taking my two boys with me when I do eventually get there.
BIG #1 on my bucket list.

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...

GOD I MISS IT :(:(:(

Yes, I can see where you would confuse them, since your RC51 would combine both performance with less noise. :confused:
However, if you pull off your mufflers and drag your rear brake, you'll fit right in with both noise and lack of go. :D

Isle of Mann would be the #1 thing on my bucket list.

Been to numerous AMA and 2 MotoGP races. Did a track school back in 96.

One must not forget the black leather vest, skid lid and ass-less chaps.:p
