We use to run the hoses from the washer tanks to the wheels w bleach to cause smokey burn outs(in cars) But the bleach would clog the pump if not removed every night.

I can rig something up for you guys using your coolant overflow It will work off the horn button

How are you, as an observer, deciding whether a good rider is riding "past his ride"? There are a few people around here who have ridden 3090 and Fayetteville at 10/10ths. Just because they've not crashed, doesn't mean they weren't riding as hard as the conditions would allow.

It's sometimes like telling a child "the stove is hot". With many, until they get burned they somehow just don't believe you.
The track is fun, and you learn a huge amount, but if we all waited for track days to take our sportbikes out of the garage and ride..........there would be a lot of bored people sitting around whoring up MH.

3090 is infamous. I learned a lot on noob rides and have ridden the slow, medium, and fast groups. If your not having fun and feeling real tense, you probably need to back it off. Skills come with seat time, knowledge, and coaching. I improving my skills at some track days next year. Brandt, Curt, and Cali have solid perspective on this subject.

..... I want to watch the next guy go around a corner on 3090 at 160.


Throwing out how fast you can go in the straights doesn't really say anything... of course the original post of how fast is fast on public roads is kinda silly anyhow.

what about racer rd? The Rd in Simonton has a few bends where thats achievable.


To add on whats been said, I'm a strong advocate of getting to the track. It improved my skills tremendously and I suggest it to all riders, new ones, old experienced ones who have never been on a track.

I could never really understand what the big fuss was about until I did it myself

Maybe, but not staying in your lane. Or, until you find the gravel the locals left at the apex.

If you want to explore the limits of you and your bike, take it to the track.

Sadly, those things do happen, I'm not going to deny that. Although I was simply making a statement saying its achievable, not suggesting people to go try it.

If you would have replied to my full post, you would see that I'm a strong advocate of getting to the track.

To me, if you are crossing the yellow, you are going above your competence level for the street.

The group I usually ride with has a fairly standard rule to treat the other lane as an invisible wall. If you can't control your bike in your lane, slow down and rethink what your doing.

It is a very simple way to keep yourself in check. I have crossed over and literally pulled over and checked my frame of mind about what I'm doing. If I am not thinking about riding 100% and distracted from work or something else, I take the time to clear that out or slow down.

My $0.02.
