russellbutson Posted January 24, 2010 Report Share Posted January 24, 2010 Hi Everyone, I have only recently discovered the CSS world of motorcycle riding (training books-courses-video etc). I am hooked on the resources I have discovered so far – its good to know there is a systematic approach to learning better riding technique. I live in Dunedin, New Zealand: unfortunately there is no CSS school. I have had a couple of track days + completed an advanced motorcycle riding course but still feel my actual handling of the bike is mostly brute force and lots of luck. My first road bike was a 1971 650 BSA lightening that I purchased back in 1976. Most of my riding has been recreational. I recently decided to have a go on the track and took out a stock – 1983 Honda vf750. I found the experience profoundly exciting – I think it actually altered my DNA - I am keen to return. I have since purchased an Aprilia RSV Mille (2002) – primarily for road use but I have taken it out on the track. While I could accuse the VF of handling issues I can’t do the same with the RSV. Instead I quickly became aware that my riding skills are pretty weak. I am keen to improve my current style – there are no courses available to me so I am doing the next best thing – regular practice + hoping to gain some feedback from folks on this site. Looking forward to gain some insightful answers to a few questions. Regards Russell Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
