Cool How to Ride Fast - a good read for my 600RR peeps.

The basics of riding fast - Advanced Riding - Visordown

This specifically talks about liter bikes, but there are some good tips in here!

Be safe out there guys!

With that said I really really really wanna take a professional track class soon.

The article should be called, "How to ride a fast bike prudently."

Thanks for the link! Trouble with twisties around here are that they are all in the woods and I've got this habit of wussing out and going slow as a turd around a corner when I can't see all the way through a corner. I've built the habit that I'm always tilting my head towards where the corner's exit would be, but when I can't see it I get overtly nervous. Today on some corners I took a look around more at utility poles and other "hints" as the article suggested and it vastly improved my confidence.

Thank you for posting this, very good read and points out some obvious facts but also some not so obvious things that I have overlooked while riding.
