The definitive "PainfullySlow Wrote This" thread

I am simply using this post as a way to catalog the various writing that I have done here, mostly because I am tired of spending 10+ minutes each time looking for a thread that I started. I will update this thread as I continue with writing. Things that are technical, informative, or interesting (to me anyway) get put here.

Why spinning your rear tire while exiting a turn is ok
Learning to ride...again.
Chassis Geometry 101, and why using the rear brake on the racetrack can be ok.
What kind of rider are you?
How to begin racing motorcycles
Strategies in track riding/road racing: Finding the limits of traction...safely
Strategies in track riding/road racing - Confidence
Strategies in track riding/road racing: Body position and braking
How to launch/race start a motorcycle
Horsepower, Torque, and how to use it properly on a motorcycle.
Avoiding attachment to ride faster
Life behind the visor...
What is it like racing near the top of the Expert Middleweight classes? (this turned technical on pg2)
http://zx6r.com/zx6r/61365-strategie...rack-days.html
Ever wonder about your contact patch?
Which levers are right for me? A quick guide.

My HD Sportster build

Have you ever thought of a book. No seriously you should write a riding book. By the way the levers you sell are freaking awesome and look really good. Bike has been sitting last year due to bad back but will be out this year. I will be hitting you up for some more MSM goodies.

Unless you have a ghost writer for the forum think a book would be a hit.
