There's a reason all the pros ride dirt-track or just plain dirt for training - maintaining brake, throttle and slide control.
I learned to ride in the dirt last year, after 25 years of riding on the street. My street riding improved remarkably afterward. I think I took to the dirt really quickly due to many track days in the Miata and learning how to initiate and control four wheel drifts with a 2200 lb car that has less HP than a Supersport.
Tracking the Miata is also where I learned my two axioms: "Slow is smooth and smooth is fast," and "if you want to go faster, stop using the brakes - they only slow you down."

It's Italian. If I can get it to start, it'll win.
