I'm afraid to get a knee down on the street because I might tear a flip flop.

If you are using your knee on the street as leverage for you and the bike...
You're doing it wrong.

"Getting a knee down" is only a check for clearance and lean angle, a result of being fast as said above, you shouldn't be resting weight on your knee.

You have 2 years and 1 trackday listed as experience in your profile. You've already admitted in this thread that that trackday is bullshit so I'm going to guess that your experience is bullshit too. Either way, what you think of your experience is largely immaterial as you've proven, also in this thread - even in this post, that you let your ego do the """thinking""" for you.


And what the does "don't hate, appreciate" actually MEAN anyway? Sounds to me like something a <insert favorite derogatory racial term here> says when they have absolutely no defense for their actions, but still want to block out the negativity to protect their inflated ego.

basing his experience strickly on what his profle says is alittle presumptuous.. but on that note since your join date says 2005 and your experience says 4, does that mean that for the first 2 years you were on the board you were a curbmonkey?
