    Of course a track day is a fine way to pick up additional skills and confidence, but a simple parking lot course is still a valuable training tool.

    I think the best twisty road skill is realizing you aren't on a closed course, and not riding like you are.

    Just one schmuck's opinion.:1drink

    Unfortunately some put an emphases on technical skills in place of roadcraft. Riding on the street the way you would on a track is called being a squid.

    Technical skills are important and practice is always good, but it wont replace judgment, awareness, consideration and not letting your ego make bad decisions.
