You do not have to be a racer or even a "want-to-be". It's all about training and practice in a controlled environment. If there are any new riders who would like to plan a street ride to the mountains for some skills work - I think it would be a lot of fun. I'll be glad to share what I have learned and I'm sure there are some others here who would gladly join in the mix.

I'm a big fan of blipping the throttle and letting the drag of the engine get me down to the desired corner speed. I used to do that a lot on the Triumph with that LOUD WOLF EXHAUST and it would scare the hell out of Juan.

On the Honda, I have noticed I have to make sure to set up for the corner with the revs up higher than I used to. That took some getting used to, but I like it now. I'm cooking through the corners with an average speed of 5-10 mph faster than the Triumph.
