Crash106 Posted August 4, 2011 Report Share Posted August 4, 2011 Hello Y'All, I just bought a new sportbike, a real crotch rocket, er, I mean couch rocket. My new ride is a 2012 Honda Gold Wing with ABS. No, it's not really a sportbike, but it does have 125 ft/lbs of torque and is a blast to ride! I'm going to be taking the Ride Like a Pro course in Greensboro, NC over the weekend. This class is designed to teach parking lot skills with heavy street bikes. Now some people claim that these parking lot rodeo skills help you "become a better street rider." I don't know if I would go that far, but since handling the big Gold Wing is about like riding around on a CBR1000RR with another CBR1000RR on the back (literally), I figured I'd go ahead and see what kind of "rider technology" they can offer me. IMHO handling the slow stuff really is a different skill set from fast cornering. I'm thinking that Ride Like a Pro could make a nice complement to CSS. If you are interested, I'll review the course here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
