Yup. Like many riders nowadays I get a lot of inspiration from Barry Morris. It was a pleasure to ride with him and the Traction E-rag guys at the Mexican 500 this year after the event was over. That little clip of Tony crashing into the car on his 3 wheeler is from that event.

Crazy that over a third of the riders had loaded their bikes back on the trucks after the first lap of a 3 lap race. Many never even made it to the end of the first lap.

Most of the guys that quit had never learned how to clutch up wheelie. That one simple move had them completely beaten in the woods where they had laid logs and tires all over the course.

Practice, practice, practice.... Static balance, clutch up wheelies, and cornering. I can't think of three more important things to practice for riding well.
