Great read. It really mirrors/applies to my situation. Except I don't travel to northern KY to ride, I just find the twisties close to Lexington. But same starting age on the bike, no experience on any other 2 wheeled vehicle. I only ever rode with another "experienced" friend once, all the other times I was with people who looked to me as the experienced one. But I felt a little more natural at riding than the author of the article seemed to be.
Track days are in my future, I just don't have the funds to travel 3+ hours to a track right now.
