****I was just thought that it might be nice to new riders and racers to have a place to go and look for information and techniques besides having to make a new post on each little topic. So use this thread for references and tips and tricks for riding or racing. Throw in whatever suggestions you may have to all the newbies.

the most important thing to do is look where you want to go
the next thing you need to remember is to relax
don't lock your elbows, let your torso and legs hold your body up

Get protective gear and hit the track ASAP
....which is exactly what will happen if they don't LEARN to ride 1st LOL!

WTF? Dont you gain some kind of knowledge by going to the track. I bet you learn more at the track than going to your local twisties. Im sure its best to learn your capabilities and the bikes on the track and not the street that way when you do ride on the street you dont F around cus you'll know how dangerous it will be.

Hitting up the track first is a horrible idea. 1st priority should be learning how to ride on the street. Most crashes aren't because people are riding beyond their abilities, it's because of other cars and road hazards. Only after sucessfully navigating the real world should you then explore your machine and your skills in the idealized world of the track where the pavement is smooth and if you crash it's going to be into some soft grass... not into a car.

BUY A SMALL ( EX500 , ETC. ) BIKE TO LEARN ON . lesson for the track ..... it will make you feel like an idiot in the beginning ( if it doesn't you will crash or be slow forever ) , but remember slow in - fast out , and the speed will come..
