    That's funny. Haha.

    I did that class in 2008 or so (well the race licensing school. I think it's similar, but I'm not entirely sure). I literally crashed the first lap that wasn't riding in a line. Turned out I had something like 10lbs in the tires...

    Dude seems a little whiny. And I didn't watch the whole thing but picked on a couple things he said.
    "I talked to the instructor there and he told me that he never uses the rear brake" thank you sir. I agree.
    ​​​​​
    "The school teaches you how to be a racer, how to go as fast as possible. Not how to be a better "rider"". No sir. I disagree completely.

    ​​​​​
    Learning to be a "racer" and learning to ride as fast as possible, makes you a FAR better rider than just about anything else you could do to improve your riding and bike control skills. When you need to make these decisions and learn to do these things in milliseconds, then you slow down the street speeds, all of a sudden you are a FAR better rider. More aware, more focused and far more skilled..

    He also complained about them saying all skill levels welcome at that school. Dude you have eight years of experience riding on the street.... I did that school with my 19-year-old girlfriend who had been on a motorcycle once in her entire life before showing up at penguin... She felt plenty comfortable.. maybe you sir, are just a bit of a bitch..

    Loudon will teach you really quick just what you don't know. That track is its own beast. Technical and fuckin sketchy.

    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

      I want to do a track school soon. I have a ton of miles on 2 wheels, I'm an MSF instructor and can ride a bike at a crawl without dumping it, but I want to learn how to be fast and safe being fast and the track is the only place to learn that. You can't do it on the street, but I agree 100% the track training can be applied on the street to make you a better rider.
