important things Ive learned

I think the most important thing I've learned in my experiance, which hasnt been much, is that you dont need to look at your hands, the brakes arent going anywhere....unless your in a shitload of trouble, and by the time they aren't there anymore youve got more important things to worry about!! Also, dont change gears in a corner, Funksoul taught me this for use in my first cage, which was a manual, and it applies on a bike too!

I'm guessing neither one of you are very good on the track?

I could see potential problems if you downshift too much in the middle of a corner but I upshift all the time coming out of a curve...

I've learned that women who are absolutely out of their minds are naturally attracted to me and that I have no problem with that

RedNinja and 748, if you are in a turn and change gears you unsettle the bike/or car, whichever applies, and this CAN cause problems....so some believe its best not to gear up/down in a turn.
