I've been getting into Moto Gymkhana recently and wanted to see if I could start something up here on WT. If you search online for moto gymkhana, you'll come across videos like this one of Yoshinobu Shiga taking his CBR to the absolute limits of control.
Riding like that takes years of training. So for the past few weekends, I have been meeting with other NYC riders to practice. Moto gymkhana is competitive in nature with the goal of fastest lap times through the course. However, our main goal is to improve riding ability and connection with our motorcycles. We time laps only against ourselves.
All riders here and all types of motorcycles are welcome to join in. Here are videos of our last two practice sessions:
As you can see, gymkhana is possible on any type of bike. I'm the one in orange with the silver 919 and blue CBR. Other bikes in the video are a KTM 690, Ninja1000, KLR, GSXR1000, and Triumph speed triple.
Riders in the NYC tristate area are welcome to join. We meet at Floyd Bennett field at the end of runway 24. We're trying for a weekly practice session. We have a facebook page for more info and future practice events: https://www.facebook.com/MotogymkhanaNyc
