I haven't been on the track before and I am really starting to think hard about my riding skills.
Don't you worry Deb. The beginners class you will be attending covers down shifting and braking in detail. Your first session of the day will feel slow for everyone as they teach the line. After that they explain why they did what they did and how to be smooth Your class sessions last until lunch. Then you get to ride on your own the rest of the day. But instructors will still work with you if you ask. Glen Goldman the owner will even tak you for a two up ride to show you want real lean angle will feel like. It helps many people. And he will drag knee during this ride. Its something else.I don't want to look like a dumba$$ either, but I probably will! I told Dennis he couldn't take my pic if I really looked stupid, he said " no way" so I said at least don't post it on the DML if I really look stupid!
All I know is I am going to learn alot and have loads of fun!! ;D
