I’ve attended several track days over the last few years, including go-kart and FMSCI-certified ones. However, my experience with riding off the tarmac is zero. But right when we attended the Royal Enfield Rider Mania 2022 in Goa, the Slide School hosted by Royal Enfield proved to be a commendable learning ground for team BikeWale.
Now, with very little clue of what and how to slide, I entered the arena and bumped into Gary Birtwistle. For reference, Gary was our coach for the day and is also the 2022 DTRA Flat Track Champion. So, what’s better than learning from the top man? All geared up and ready to slide (kind of), I boarded the stripped-down Royal Enfield Himalayan. But what exactly can one learn from flat tracking? Let’s find out through this breakdown.
