Interesting. It sounds as if riding is riding, no matter where. The same physics rule. While trackies have to dodge other riders, streeties have to deal with an even wider variety of interference, but at slower speeds.

And, it's been said on this forum that only top pros can teach top pros. But, it seems that technique is universal and ones ability to explain it so that others can understand it is more important than being able to go fast.

For me, Code is a horrible explainer of technique. I have to read and re-read his stuff and then I still feel it's either over my head or he is too inarticulate to explain simple concepts. Then, I read something by Nick or Lee Parks and it is laughably simple to understand, because those guys know how to write.

Many instructors disagree on how to ride fast, or what is important to teach someone that wants to go fast. Its like having sex. Lots of ways to do it wrong, yet still get yours and her orgasm.

I Ride: the walk
Yup followed my buddy around ORP and noticed he is coasting on the off-camber to T13. Told him to gas it out of 12 then get on the brakes, he came back slapping his forehead since suddenly he could easily make a line he was struggling to get at without brakes. It's scary to get on the front brake when it's so much off-camber as it is there, but is definitely a faster way around.

They stressed the class was just as much for street riders as it was for track guys quite a bit actually. In fact, several of the returning students were not even track or race guys and rode touring bikes.

After the class I can't wait to get to turn 3 at PIR, I constantly run wide there or have to slow down as the off camber makes me nervous, but I feel now I have a better idea of how to tackle it. Looking at the video of my crash there, I had unloaded the hell out of the front where I applied the throttle.
