Recently did my 3rd go a CornerSpin school

Nothing feels quite so fast as riding a tore up 100, on nearly bald tires in the dirt and hitting 20mph.

The cam fixed to the bike is my footage, helmet cam is my buddy and he just dumped it to a single file.

If you can work it out to take this school - highly recommend you do. I know it's let me save what could have been two crashes. One on the street and one at the track

Some of the stuff you work on is:

* Managing traction to and over the threshold
* Chassis dynamics - specifically implications of throttle on it/ how coasting costs you
* Some physical technique stuff - like "screw driver hands" though this take away is HUGE
* Line choice
* If you're getting saucy enough, how to recover the front when it's started to push away (imminent low side), sliding the rear/backing in

If you want to see some fun, skip to 17:10. The #13 bike is a CSS racer on a 150 (I'm on a 100) and we mix it up for a bit

-Throttle's on the right, so are the brakes.  Good luck.
