What is the track able to teach us that we don't or can't learn on the street?
Agree 100%!!IMHO, 20 years on the streets. First day on the track I realized I knew nothing.

Hahahahha, that made me laugh out loud. But it is true!!!
So, what was the biggest thing you found out in terms of realizing you knew nothing. What was the first thing you realized you had to work on?
Hahahaha. I did the exact same thing, thinking I was hot sh*t on the street when I was scraping pegs and then realizing at the track 1. just how dumb that is, and 2. just how slow I was!!I learned quickly how horrible my body position was. I remember scraping pegs on the street and thinking I was fast. Then the track showed me both how slow I was, and how fast I could get with proper body position.
I also overcame my fear of tucking the front under hard braking. On track I could push that limit and discovered just how hard I could brake without even a hint of traction loss up front. And I'm still miles away from braking like Nicky Hayden
