Some riders enjoy the thrill of refining their skills with speed. Track days are a great way to do so. There are many schools and organizations that riders can register with to do a track day. Often, these schools or groups will have coaches to help riders learn the path they should ride, how to take corners faster, proper body position and other techniques. Many safety precautions are taken at the track. Proper gear must be worn, and all bikes go through a tech and safety inspection before they are allowed on the track.
Not all tracks are paved. Various schools exist which teach riders how to slide through turns, and the best way to do this is on dirt. And techniques you learn on the dirt can be used on paved roads, too.
