Really. Serious as a heart attack.













Now let's see where this goes...



Talk amongst yourselves, I'll wait.
yer a sissy... I do my seat and grips... makes it easier to hang off.. and the armor all on the tires helps my drifting technique...

so there!
Oh yeah? Well I do my rubber foot pegs (and boots) as well to all that other stuff...sometimes even my leathers so both the seat and the leathers slide around better....oh yeah, and also the inside of my helmet...cause it smells nice.


I'm rubber, your glue...of course I'm coated in Armor All, so it doesn't always bounce back, hit you, and stick...maybe it ricochets off to the side and hits some old fart on a Harley in the head...then he's confused and adds Armor All to his gas tank, thinking it's NOS, but it's really an energy drink...

so there.

Because sometimes you may pull off in the grass and or dirt at a turn waiting for people then you immediately hit a turn at full speed once back on the road and or track.

Or... you can wait for the thread about the dude that slammed on his brakes to heat up his tires and 3 riders smashed in behind him.

Thread started out with some good info that many riders didn't really know about.

Then the same riders that complain about douchebags came in and douchebagged the thread up into a big joke.
