shoulda gone to the track today. It was a lot of fun. Stop being pu*ssywhipped. You could learn a lot more at the track then on the street. I don't think that you are capable of dragging your knee just yet.

I followed her around TWS (Texas World Speedway) a couple weeks ago on her TL 1000. Trust me she could suck the headlights outta some of you guys bikes, why do you think they make you tape them up?
And don't get funny cause I used the word suck in this post... I'm watchin you.

Sometimes it's dusty from the nearby construction but yeah it can be sweet too. Although I have heard that John Law knows about it too and sometimes watches for "our kind"

I dont get why you want to wear jeans when you want to drag knee...
I have kevlar pants for the street where I'm trying to not make contact with the street, and supermotos with knee sliders for when I'm trying to get low.
I mean really thats mostly illegal and antisocial behavior for the street there.

stuff like puddles, oil, gravel.. yikes. Thats the thing. If youre dragging knee you kinda need leathers on cause of the risk involved.
Do you really want to be wearing jeans when you go down?

okay, and i already know.....i shouldn't even be riding through city streets like that. but hey...when you see a tight turn and nobody's around.....everyone gets that feeling like they're at the track.

I say grab some bamboo casings and cut them in half so u have semi circular splints.. and just duct tape them on ur leg.. =) if it catches on fire.. the people riding behind u would say.. wtf is that.. bamboo?!?!?

And when your legs break you already have splints on. No problem.

What happens when I drag my elbows? Do they make elbow sliders?Will bamboo work there too?
