whats the big deal with dragging knees?

honestly i have never found the need to put my knee out on the streets and i can say that i go through turns at a good pace most of the times, it has been proven that dragging knees actually slows you down so i dont really know how doing it on street rides will be of any benefit to improve your riding skills

For the most part, yes. I've racked up less than 500 street miles in the last two years combined.

well WTF did you think would happen in this thread?

Did you really think people were going to be like "oh dude, youre so cool! I wish I was like you!!! teach me how to ride like you!!!" ?

Ive got a little 200cc tractor supply mini-bike and Ill knee-down that all up and down the street, am i as cool as you now?

Now go sit in the corner, think about what youve done and keep the noise down while the adults are talking.

What you do in a truck stop restroom with Dirty Mike and the Boyz bears little relevance in this thread.

Do me a favor and spill some frosty when you drag elbow out the parking lot. I'll be dragging eyebrow through there in a bit and wouldn't mind something tasty for my efforts.
