The only reason I'm even willing to consider it is cuz a bike clutch is like a one hour job for me.
No way in he'll I'd drag a cage.
I hate working on cars. I do it out of necessity not cuz I enjoy it

Big thanks to Lee, Chris & Brian for leading the Wed/Thurs rides. I joined the rides to improve my technique & riding skills so I'd be safer on the street. I picked up a book called Total Control by Lee Parks and read that several times. Then I joined the rides and focused on different aspects like Corner entry, picking lines , body positioning and trail braking on different rides. I made sure to ride my own ride and would usually be mid-pack or offer to ride sweep so I could focus on my technique. That's the great thing about the group rides, you can always find someone faster than you to follow and learn by example. Gradually, as the techniques became ingrained the combined skillsets made me smoother....and some speed came with it.
