150 MILE TIRE BREAK IN IS A MYTH! I've had so many people tell me that you need to ride slow and not lean much in the first 150 miles with new tires or else you'll crash, when that couldn't be further from the truth. Now don't get me wrong you still should be careful at the very beginning while the tire looks slick, but after only a few corners of going somewhat easy and scuffing that shine off, you have full grip and are good to go full tilt. This video was filmed less than 5 minutes from leaving the shop after getting new Dunlop Q3s, and as you can see the bike handles just fine and I have full grip. Hopefully people will stop spreading this false information about 100+ mile break in, 50 years ago that was true but now the tire manufacturing technology has improved to the point where that's no longer the case

We've got the whole line-up out here at MSRH for testing! From left to right - Yamaha R3, R6 and R1!

It feels great to be back on a race track again. I had a bit of a warm-up at Speedsportz yesterday on the NSR50 and today I rode an R3 for the first time - What a fun bike!

I was a bit aprenhensive my first lap out considering I was injured the last time I was at this track but within a minute I was excited and feeling great! I've still got a long way to go and a lot to learn but we got a lot of great information today and identified things to work on.

Thanks to my coach @krislillegard and @dustinapgar for all the help today!
