Come meet the Dr. Evil of street riding: dirt. It’s gritty, unpredictable, and, when mixed with water, it will turn your Electra Glide into a muddy mess. Worse, running wide on your favorite left-hander means you’ll usually meet dirt at the worst possible moment: leaned over and going way too fast. For many street riders, a disdain for dirt keeps them from just diving in and learning how to ride on terra firma. But by doing so, you’ll become a better rider and not panic whenever you encounter the stuff.
