Thumbs up SCCA racer interested in bikes...

I've always wanted a motorcycle.... and I went to the AMA Superbike Race this weekend at California Speedway to help flag. (I flagged turn 18 on Sat and 7 on Sun) I'm very interested, so i'm just here to learn.

I had one question. I've used the search tool, but I havne't found anything right away.

Is there any page that goes over the in's and outs of bikes. Some sort of motorcycle 101? Thanks for the help.

How to ride--Check local DMV for training classes

How to ride well--"Proficient Motorcycling" by David Hough or any of a bajillion books like it

How to ride well/performance--"Twist of the Wrist I+II" by Keith Code

How to play a motorcycle genius--Anywhere on the internet...

If you are an SCCA racer, you know about riding lines and will probably not have trouble picking up many of the performance aspects once you get going. Local dealer could direct you toward dirt or street classes where you cover "This is how you go" + "This is how you stop" mechanics.

Welcome to your NEXT expensive hobby...
