nothing about back roads that he has traveled many times :icon_bigg :icon_bigg sounds to me more like a spur of the moment need for speed.......

Yes. I use to do that on Saturday mornings before the traffic got to crazy and someone called the cops on me(luckily I wasn't doing it when the(9 cops pulled me over). Haters. Anyway I was wearing full leathers and you should too dude. You shouldn't drag knee unless you are suited up for it.

I don't do it anymore because I finally realized I am old now(after crash) and I don't heal very fast anymore.

best place to drag knee in houston is between allen parkway and memorial right around studemont and waugh there are these huge sweepers to go from one street to the other like total circles.

But don't drop your bike there I ride/drive there everyday and it slows down traffic.

Send a message via AIM to houseofpaint
thanks for some of the safety issue advice. and apologies for my squidly question....

and to some of the hypocritical advice....you know some of you fckers are the ones speeding 150 in traffic playing dodgeball with cars....and i'm pretty sure some of you actually do fck around on the streets more than i ever would.

i'll just keep it at the track. (so i won't get flamed any further)

wear the gear anyway
I really really really don't want skin grafts
I'm not afraid of dying but lying in the hosptial for weeks getting skin grafts would really suck

then again hospital jello isn't so bad and at least if you go to memorial herman I think you get cable.
