Hittin The Twisties On My RC 51
Hey guys, great site with lots of info. I was lurking for a while before joining and most of my questions have been answered. I picked up an ’03 red CBR a few weeks ago and love it except the exhaust smell after riding but that is a different post. I am a newbie to sportbikes (still have my ’05 Polaris Predator TLD quad and it will always be my first love) so I am still getting used to it. I attended the MSF course and I learned a lot; it was great. I still target fixate on occasion, turns are not as smooth as I would like, and paranoid as heck when I am around cell yakking cagers in traffic. My question is how exactly did you guys perfect your skills without having a mature rider watching you? I have friends who ride and the only thing they can show me is what NOT to do. Two of them actually ran from the cops last weekend after I left from a ride to go home. Not something I would even think of doing, btw. I guess I need to find some mature riders in my area to hang with. I practice daily riding as often as I can, weather permitting, but I would feel better if I had a second set of eyes critiquing me.
