First let me say, welcome! If you are new to riding on the track you have come to the right place! I have been riding and racing motorcycles for just under a decade and I want to share my passion for the track with you.
I believe EVERY rider should attend at least 1 track day because it makes you a safer, faster, and more confident rider. I tell people I learned more in 1 day on the track than I did in 1 year of street riding. Plus it’s a blast!
My main goal with CornerCarving.com is to provide you with a resource that breaks down any barriers that have prevented you from signing up for a track day, and to inspire you to take the plunge with confidence! Then once you are hooked (and trust me, you will be hooked) there are many articles to help you progress as a rider and master the art of motorcycling.
