Re: Skill Progression
The streets are not a very good or safe place to practice your corner speeds. Plus you can't get a good indication of how well you are progressing. Join NESBA or some other track organization. Invest in a lap timer and you will know exactly how you are progressing. The control riders will give you advise learned from years of racing experience. You'll discover you will reach your limits ALOT sooner then the limits of the bike. If you wreak on the track you'll generally walk away with little to no injuries. It's only a matter of time until you hurt yourself or worse hurt someone else if you keep pushing on public roads. Trust me when I tell you, once you do a track day and discover how incredible sport bikes REALLY are, you'll never want to run the streets again.
On yeah one last thing, once you get good, you'll be passing litter bikes on your 600 like they are standing still. My track bike is a 2000 R6, I'm passing 06 R1, Gixers, Ducati, whatever, no problems. Those skills can only be learned on the track.
