it "says" that you lack the ability to lean the bike all the way over on the tires, which normally takes a speed of over 100 mph with most of the corners around here. I think it's kinda funny, people saying someone has chicken strips... maybe most of thier riding is commuting and not trying to scrape their knee on every turn :/:

i have no problem leaning my bike to the edge of the tires but i see no need to do so at 120mph to prove anything. I prefer the laid back and relazed cruising to enjoy the scenery

the corners i take are just really sharp and i go at it about 35-50mph. all the little corners i take are low speed. but i don't get low enough to drag knee or anything

the only ones i ever see people trying to drag knee around are the long sweepers which would require a speed of 100 ish at least to drag knee

I have no shame in having chicken strips on my tires.

For the most part I ride exclusively in Houston (everyday for the last 4 months) and I would really have to push it to scrub the tires' edges on the freeways here.

Now, when I take the bike out to the Hill Country, on good roads that I'm familiar with, I can run it up to the tires' edges almost immediately. But even then, I have to be hustling.

And when I say hustling, I mean riding in a manner that would be frowned upon by most of the same people who poke fun at riders who have chicken strips on their tires.

My streetbike is not a track bike

"Dude! Check out your chicken strips! Oh what a poser you must be!"

"Oh man, you're right, let me go and scrub those off!"

Kid hauls ....

, check out that poser haulin' around the loop! Effin Squid!"

i honestly don't mind people that have chicken stripes. its just the ones that have the Ego thinking they are badass cause they can hit 130 in a straight line and do a wheelie in traffic.

MAn, I miss highspeed freeway wheelies passing cars doing 120. But as much as I miss them I don't miss sitting in the back seat of the not legroom cop cars. I just sneak a wheelie in at MSR Houston when Buck ain't looking now to get my fix.

Yup, i see this all the time too. I get up pretty quick in the corners but not trying to push it to drag knee. Not worth it IMO. I have tiny little chicken strips on the very edge of my tires but like sb said, not many good turns around here without having to get 100+ to get down on it.

is that the next thing now instead of a simple wave? is to do have a wheelie contest in the middle of traffic!? then speed off into triple digits going in between cars when you win a "wheelie contest"?


fking grow up people!


*rant*
not very nice to be talk like that about me jk of course it wasn't me, however I have seen that before!!
