I like scraping pegs on a TW200.
Yeah same here. Me and my friend teamed up with two other riders and we were the only ones with actual road experience in our class.
Two guys were all decked in brand new expensive gear, and were afraid to ride over 20mph. They both dumped their bikes numerous times.
The instructors yelled at me for going too fast for the braking part of the course. He wanted me to go like 15 MPH. I told him id rather do it at speeds I will actually be doing on the road, and he just stared at me lol
