Track days

I want to expand my street riding abilities. I already took the MSF basic course and will be singing up for the advanced course in the early fall. The MSF courses here in PA seem to mostly cover the low speed handling ability. I make no light of this training, I will take all the training I can. I would like to learn how to handle my KLR and higher speeds in a more controlled environment than the street with all the cars and trucks waiting to run me over if a make a mistake. I'm thinking about getting signed up for a track day club next year. I have been looking on-line for a school on learning how ride better at highway speed and all I can find are track day clubs. These clubs seem to cater to the sport bike rides, would my KLR be welcome? Would this type of riding help me be a better street rider?

Nothing in the world is better for your daily riding than knowing the limits of your bike, and there's no place better to learn those limits than under the controlled environment of a race track.

Yes, they cater to sport bikes, but you'll always find someone (or more) riding Harleys, metric cruisers, standards, and yes, dual sport bikes.

Email the track day people for info. They'll set you up and you can decide if you want to spend the money or not.
