The majorty of people surviving on sport bikes is the ones scared of it to a certain degree. Respect it and have SELF CONTROL. If your crazy and have no fear. You won't live long.You need luck too. I been thinking of no more street riding but have too many woman that want to ride. I just ride the forest most of the time know 2 up and to work 1 to 2 days a week. Do a track day X100 . I could never Qiut riding!!!!!! I don't fear death but i respect it.

I do not know from experiance but I've heard the smaller bikes are a lot of fun on the track

Get a dirt bike or something. Do you live in Cleveland? If so, go ride on the street in Houston and when you get home you will feel safer.

bro... bro!... why are you gonna come say some like that in the forum?

men don't really commit to:.. tears.. faggets... make up... sailor moon.. pink color..

other man's children, nor fear. that said, if you don't feel safe, sell the bike, stop

thinking about it, family comes first, or if you have the , just buy life insurance, I

pay $25 a month for 500 g's.. you can't roll around with fear, that is actually terror

on you, sell the bike bro

Not me. There's only one stretch of street that gets in my head. McCarty between 610 and Mesa. That's one mile of uncontrolled intersection with people turning left whenever/wherever they want to, and it's 90% certain they're uninsured in this neighborhood. Bad ju-ju all around.

Though you guys that deal with 1960 - F that noise. I wouldn't ride that for money.

Well , I glad I got some great responses. I ride almost every weekend, I enjoy the ride and I'm not scare of my skills. I feel comfortable , I'm not saying im an expert but I can hanlde my own. I think trying out the track wouldn't be such a bad idea. I think I'm willing to try it at least once. Houston is too crazy ti ride in , nevertheless I will look into a track day. I knew asking here would result in great advice ! Plus the fact that I ride solo 90 % of the time is unnerving. But i got dome thinking to do. Thanks guys !

First timers at RideSmart can ride for 50% off, free leathers and boots if you need them. Next event is next Monday at TWS (Texas World Speedway). $72.50 isn't that much to spend to see if you like it. PM me if you're interested in attending and I will send you the registration code.

...'getting out' does not mean giving up. There's nothing keeping you from getting back to riding later down the road.

Loud pipes don't save lives.
Awareness saves lives.
Skills save lives.
Gear saves lives.

Loud pipes only increase the publics unhappiness with noisy bikes.



and maybe make insecure people feel better. (which is why my bike has an aftermarket pipe, I have a small and I don't want anybody to know. Shh, our secret, Mmm'K?)

Yeah - its probably you. Now that you've been declawed by the city and told to STFU, you've got sand in your vag over the fact that you cant ticket any more bikers.

Sucks for you. Maybe if you had done your job rather than using your badge to force your personal views on others, you might not end up retiring in disgrace.

[QUOTE=bumblebee;3009105] Awareness saves lives.QUOTE]

Be aware of your what is around you at all times. To me most of the RIP threads could have been avoided if the rider was more aware. Whether its his skill level, street riding style or what is around him (caes). So far, that has gotten me through over 20years of riding wreck.
In the end do what you think is best for you.
