Where's the vid of the dude missing the corner (not sure if it was on 3090 or not) he runs wide to the right and across a field down to a farm road and miraculously keeps it on two whels?

You don't think it takes skill to run 160+ on those 3090 straights? Down shifting, blippin, end moving all around, brakin to the apex, dodging road kill and gravel? Then gettin on it, lightin it up at corner exit? 6 deep?

It's been said a million times before but do us a favor and ride your own ride. There will always be someone faster than you in the end. As mentioned the track is the place to go to learn how to properly gauge your speed on the street and there is no need to really push it on 3090, racer rd, etc.... They are fun roads to play on but they are not places to test or push your skill level.


Be safe out there and Please make sure your having FUN!!! (btw naked bikes are more fun)

your asking the wrong question. ride what your capable of and dont worry about what is "fast". what one person considers fast, may be slow to another, just ride your own ride and try not to die.

Really? Ever watch any sport were a players body language kinda you tells you how they are performing?

Really not that hard as an observer in the least. Never herd someone in the 3rd person say " he was out of control".. Thats somone observering a sitituation...

You can't expect people to buy bikes considered thrill-seeking, and think they are gonna ride them responsibly 100% of the time. Also, "responsibly" is completely perception IMO, a pace that is completely comfortable for me could look irresponsible to alot of people, not at all even trying to suggest I'm quick on backroads bc I assure you I'm not and I've had a few people on this board remind of me that. Just because they are doing something that you can't/won't/prefer not to bc of personal safety, doesn't mean they aren't in complete control of what's going on. With that said, those guys learned how to handle their bikes like that at the racetrack, it enhances your riding ability in ways you can't imagine until you do it. Example: I used to ride the forest religiously with a number of people, 2 of the earliest ones being Cyrick21 and SmokinJoe, at first the 3 of us had a pretty similar pace and it was fun, then those 2 started doing trackdays and that was the end of my pacing being the same as theirs, they took off. Then I started doing trackdays and I've quickened up considerably but now I'm to the point where I don't really care too much for hauling on twisties 100% of the time. Ride at your pace with a group you are comfortable with, do some trackdays, and don't ever go into a twisty ride with the intent of impressing people.

Yes. Google 3090 or check out the first post of any of the rides labeled 'forest gnome' for the route we take everytime.
