Default The only book worth reading

The title is, "DIY", and the author is everyone who ever quit whining about how much things suck and blaming anyone but themselves for it, and got up off their ass, rolled up their sleeves and did something about it with whatever they had at their disposal.



Or if that concept requires too much deep thinking for you, just throw a Fugazi CD into your stereo and sing along.



"Never mind what they're selling. It's what you're buying!"



Bust it Ian!

They did mess up that sentence badly, which says that whoever proofreads was sleeping. Maybe they should have a talking to? A stern word or something? Maybe a slap in the chin. Whatever the case be, just wake it up so we can proceed. Thank you.

I attended the track school at BIR and it was well worth it. DonÂ’t feel shy to talk to Gareth and the on track mentors. I made sure and lined up behind the on track mentors before the session was to begin and find them after the session ended, for the purpose following there lines and to ask them question on how I was doing and how I could improve.

I don't think this guy works for WSMC! As far as I know, Kenny Kopecky from WSMC had no idea of this story. Why can't you take it as it is, and believe the story!



I've heard nothing but great things about the clinic from WSMC.

Absolutely true! Made a run this weekend on the aging Concours with an FJR1200, ST1300, and an FZ1. The riders of those three bikes clearly had not attended a track school.

Thanks for the excellent review. I've been toying with the idea of a racing class and I think you've tipped me over into taking one by the end of the year.



Now if only MO would hire a copy editor



Great article!

I didn't see that in this particular story. In fact, I saw several cautionary mentions that would lead me to do a lot more checking of those who will be teaching the class than I would have before reading the article.



If he liked it, he liked it. Can it possibly be that simple?
