For a street oriented class offered all over the place, I really enjoyed Lee Parks' course. Learned a lot (though I had and still have a lot to learn...) in a day and I think it made me a much better rider.

Now back to the dumbass thread...

I've really enjoyed Lee's book "Total Control" oh, his deer sport gloves have been great as well.

Great book, 2nd most important readable riding info after the Proficiency series, and a lot more fun.

And to remain un-moderated, my friend did a 2-fast track day - 2Fast Motorcycle Track Days & Instruction - Home Page - (only available in the state of washington) and loved it, it's on my agenda as soon as I can make time.

Another very readable book with great info is Nick Ienatsch's "Sport Riding Techniques"

I wouldn't mind doing a Keith Code cornering school. I gave his twist of the wrist book and vid to a neighbor kid that started riding street a month ago.

Power can be a delicious thingy. Don't mess with Sistah Sachi.

Anywho I doubt that anyone except one individual will have much to worry about as far as moderating goes. Much discussion is going on in that regard.

Don't bug me. The only moderating I've done so far is some editing at the request of the individual posuers.... er I mean posters. Except for fixing BrowningBAR's atrocious spelling.

Thumbs up

Hey I've got some Lee Parks Deerskin gloves, they work great. Never went to his class though. The only one could teach me anything would be Rossi and I'd have to give him a good Biaggi bump and send him in the weeds, then they'd probably want me to take his place on the Yammi GP team and I don't have enough vacation to hit them all.....

It'd just be a mess. Anyway the gloves are cool....

Don't you mean "poseur's... er I mean posters"? HA! Now I don't have to be a jerk to someone for another whole hour.

Rossi said he doesn't want any part of you now that you sold your dyna. The bonnie has too much race history.
I've had the gloves for a couple of years; they get a bit stiff after a sweaty ride but then so do I.

You and the gloves can both be washed. Just throw those gloves in the washer on gentle and they'll be good as new.

You? probably not.

I learned my considerable riding skills from "Anrajala's school of crashing 125 cc Suzuki thirteen times". I recommend highly.
