no matter how experienced you are and how fast you think u are theres always somebody faster

but you know nothing about that rider, he could be a expert racer out there playing in level 1.... not to mention that track looks a little small for those big bikes, lol

True... I'm just playing with him.. I rode home from pp1 with the guy.. Rides good in a straight line...lol...

Any yeah.. Allen is one of the most bumpy roads in H town... I don't care how good you are.. hitting a bump in mid lean is scary ..
