2008 Riding Goals

Got this idea from somewhere else, here are a few of mine. What are yours?


Track:

More days this time in intermediate, only did 1 in novice this year.... Learn and listen to all advice.

Don't have the experience yet to really go into much else I need to work on.


Street:

0 tickets

Work on being smooth instead of WFO.

Work on late braking and faster entry speeds

Keep it on my side of the yellow except for passing, no more white to white riding even at night

2005 Honda CRF88RR - 2007 Honda CBR600RR

no wrecking this year

pc3 for the rc (after the cali trip)

do the cali trip with out too much incident

make it to the rally this year

make it to the gap and have one whole trip dedicated to just making runs

at least 4 trips to the gap this year

work on not using the brakes as i enter a corner () no more drag racing to the next corner just to go through at a snails pace to punch it again

atleast 15k miles this year (12.5k was too easy)

more miles with more ppl

go camping off of the bike more
