Re: First time on track with my new Gixxer!
This place confuses me. So many different personalities from around the globe. Guess I need to learn to take things with a pinch of salt here
Here is the deal. Trying to learn to go fast on a big bike teaches you little more than how not to highside yourself to the moon.
Learning on a little bike, like a 250/300, teaches you everything. How to brake super deep into the corner. How to carry crazy amounts of corner speed. How to make the most of your corner exits. All because you are trying to go as fast as possible on a bike that won't stick you in the ground like a golf tee if you get on the gas too hard.
Remember. Riding a slow bike fast is better than riding a fast bike slow.
Used to race, used to be fast, won a few championships.
