Given what you have come from: Learn and practice (and practice more untill too old to ride) On a Busa practice, two stage braking, practice panic stops, practise useing the rear brake to help steer the bike in the tighter turns, practise useing the rear brake to back up the front in panic stops. You will accidentally go too fast and get in a jam and need to get it stopped, this is going to happen to you. The Busa will not stop like a sport bike or a low powered light weight 250, if you over react and grab a handfull of brake at either end of this bike, you will be on the deck. Best place to practise is Ruapuna friday afternoons as mentioned in previous post, between sessions talk to the regular track guys and get pointers you can go to work on staight away.Give Mike at Mainland Motorcycle Training a call, ACC funding has made his courses cheap. Too many variables in the real world for a newbie on a superbike weighing in at 240kg fueled, to be "fanging" in the hills
