Where to Practice?

So I hear about people going out to practice, but where do people go to do this? I have a couple of spots but not too secure.

I guess it depends what you're gonna practice, there's gotta be a sheep farm somewhere around here

Good one! I'll try to be more specific. Where do people go to practice burn outs, wheelies, that kinda stuff. I don't need practice with the farm life, had enough of that as a kid

dude,
people arent going to post the spots online for obvious reasons. You should come to royal oak and talk to some of the guys and get the scoop.


LMAO

If you want to practice the riding test type stuff, got to Schoolcraft Garden City (behind McDonalds off of Ford Rd) or any other site that gives the MSF course,...all the course stuff is painted on the ground including the infamous "box" and cornering exercises. If you took the course these should be very apparent to you one you go there....

@ the sheep farm. I myself have happened to run into a few just by riding around with some folks. Unfortunately, they are almost an hour away for me, so I have only hit them up when I'm riding over to RO or something of the sorts. I'm half thinking of tearing it up on the airport I work at late at night one of these times.....just gotta watch out for the occasional inbound flight.
