True story.

I thought I could ride. I thought I was fast. I went to the track...........

I found out 2 things. I couldn't ride. I wasn't fast.

If you take anything from this thread and the reaction to your video, it is that track time will improve your skills. I'm sure a lot of experienced guys were shocked to see it. One thing is for sure, no traction was lost with either tyre. If you're honest with yourself, you will agree.

You may also find that time spent at the track will actually make you slow down on the street. Knee down at the track, not even close on the street.

I rode quickly and poorly on the street for the best part of 20 years, and openly admit it.

Take this post as you will, tell me me to go myself and I will understand. I just don't want to read a RIP thread with your name on it without having posted up.

Take care

No you are right about everything butone thing for sure. I ether hit something or had something on my tires because when I pulled over and show the other guys you can tell on the side of the tires that there was marks of dirt or whatever it was.

Say what you wanna say. If you weren't there to see it then you. Don't really know what happened. Like I say....say what you wanna say (YOU WEREN'T THERE)

This is what I think happened, anytime you hit the double yellows, paint strips, or tar snakes at a high rate of speed with a good amount of leanangle you'll feel the bike slip, but not enough to make you run that wide unless it spooked you, which it did me the first time it ever happened. I think the slip spooked you, you ran wide to the outside edge of the other side of the street, and that's where the dirt or what have you came from on your tires.

But like you said I wasn't there, pure speculation on my part but I'd bet money on it that's what happened.

Yeah, when you hit the lines it's a deffinate slip until you hit the pavement again, marks could have been the yellow paint from the lines slightly blackened from the tire, guess it could kinda look like dirt, but the paint probly rubbed on to the tire where you slipped accross it. Again pure speculation but highly possible.

He's not listening. None of us want a RIP thread, but it's gonna end up that way eventually if he doesn't listen. Sort of like gear, we can talk about it, but ultimately, it's his choice. Make lame excuses, or face the music and adjust as needed. I used to ride a little wilder, until someone took the time to straighten me out (somewhat).

In other news, I just put together that was you on the KTM at Orzaks. Very nice LC4. I was playing with the new to me 2006 ZX10R.

I will have to show you guys "Bob's Road" that we took after Burton. It ends back on 390, just in a round about way. Hope your Sunday Morning Ride went well.
