It was a bad thing. Well, not really. It was hot and I pushed the bike around a lot to prevent overheating while waiting in line for the drills. What the instructors could do with full dressed cruisers was pretty cool. Actually they performed all the drills using the variety of bikes that showed up, cruisers, repliracers, custom choppers. Anyway the bad part was a drill were you first accelerated down a straight, slowed then went thru a 130 degree turn into a quick right then left and down a straight again, then reverse the pattern. What was bad about it you say? Well I got rid of my chicken strips completely on the front, almost gone on the rear, developed a greater confidence in my tires and now have to look into trackdays since that kind of behaviour is unacceptable for me on the street. So much for the economics of this bike! Why are there no tracks in NY?
