Re: SoCal Moto Gymkhana Chapter
I cheated on that test, kinda. I had actually just bought my (then wife) a Honda rebel to teach her how to ride. I decided to bring this to the course because it was so stable and fun to ride. They made my box waaaay smaller than the standard size box because I brought it lol. I still made it just fine, even with the drastically smaller box. The emergency braking was also tons of fun, I decided to lock up the rear every time just for shiggles. They all laughed at me because I would swing the tail-end around about 45 degrees. Good choice to take the MSF course, but there are plenty of things that they teach that are not completely real-world oriented (like cornering power). They say you should maintain or increase your throttle, never decel, and never touch your brakes. Ask bladeracer about this, if you come into a corner too fast a little (read LITTLE) braking can keep you on the hard surfaces. I do not race, but have had to brake a few times because I am not a pro, and was trying to take corners like an idiot. (I was being stupid without the skill to be stupid safely) Anyway, welcome, and we look forward to getting to know you.
