That's what I looked like at my last MSF course










At least, that's how I felt comparing myself to all the Harley riders....

Everytime I watch one of those I'm hopping to see some major tire abuse like the car guys. You know, locked up rear tire corner entry, hazing the tire on exit.

Impressive skill for sure. But it looks more like a bike autocrosss event than my 4 wheeled stereotype of gymkahna.
