I've been riding for eleven years, I use to race a lot and I got out of it. But now I'm back into it an my second race in the 450 class I got first place. The trick is to hold it wide open and don't be afraid of contact.
My goal is to make it big.
I peg it out and cut turns. I'm not afraid to get close and rub around curves but I will NOT straight up and T-bone you.
