In this episode I have a great discussion with Scott Rybarik. Scott and I talk about lots of topics related to motorcycles and motorcycling, including community, running clubs, managing risk and performance, how people learn new skills, taking kids racing, the lessons of motorcycling that relate to other parts of life, modern motorcycle electronics and tires and are they too good, and much, much more.

In this episode I have great chat with Manny Bastos, who got his motorcycle and track day instructor training with Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS), and now runs his own rider training school, Riders Academy, at New York Safety Track (NYST). I recently completed the Riders Academy and plan to do many more track days at NYST. We talk about track days, NYST, Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS), my recent training at California Superbike School (CSS), and why people do track days and how any street rider can benefit from learning to ride on the track. And we cover a lot of other topics including track riding, street riding, wheelies and more!
