Hello from Mississippi...
« on: February 11, 2013, 01:42:04 PM »
Hello, I'm GaryB from Starkville, MS.  I ride a 1999 1500 Goldwing.  I am always lookiing for parking lot practice ideas for my friends and myself.  There is no doubt in my mind that good practice makes a much better rider.

It seems to me that the nay-sayers are those who can't do the slow practices or refuse to do them because "they have ridden for a bazillion years and have ridden from Key West to Alaska 20 times.  I would bet that most would be afraid of failure and losing face that to learn to actually ride better.   Also...pointing a morotcycle down the road and going does not make one a motorcycle rider, just a motorcycle guider.

I hope to learn a lot and put into practice the skills I learn in different practices.  You should never stop learning about ridinig your motorcycle....or setting your goals to learn to ride better.

GaryB

Welcome, both Gary and Daniel!  Good to have you aboard.  I used to ride a 2005 Goldwing.  Good to see the Hondapotamus represented!
Lean into it...

I have a new to me 2011 BMW F800R.  I am scared shitless to gymkhana on it, but I'm going to just have to hold my breath and jump in.  It will  probably be way easier than the Suzuki 500GS, but it's so much prettier and newer and more expensive!
