Second ramp has a double apex, metal expansion joints and recommended speed of 35pmh. Entered and exited at 75mph.
Could have easily gone faster on both ramps, but since I am on a CBR and Bridgestone tires your experience may vary
Good to know, but I'm going to still creep around turns while the weather is cold and damp. I was curious to know if I could lean in this type of weather but don't have the nor the funds to find out. Thanks Bevo

Ride your own ride because I'm not encouraging you to do what I do, but the tires and the bike are a lot more capable than you think unless you're riding something harder than a BT-023

Several WSB and MotoGP races are held in 50 degree conditions and I don't see them holding back much. Cold conditions just makes tires take longer to get to operating temp and they cool off faster. Make sure you check your pressures and take a few more miles before riding hard. Be prepared for your bike to feel "loose" due to they lower temps but the tires still have enough grip to keep you upright as long as you stay smooth through corners. If you are uncomfortable with the loose feeling, slow down.

I can only imagine how many disastrous youtube clips involving motorcycles started with the thought "well if Stoner can do it...".

Bunch of sissys.. practice sliding both tires on a dirt bike and get used to it moving around.. then hop on your street bike and ignore it!

Wasn't implying you should ride like Stoner on cold tires cause you'd probably end up sliding off the road like Smrz. LOL. Just meant that the traction is there if he tires are properly brought up to temp. Skill and confidence in your bike also play a big part.

I always knock. It's polite. You want me to just walk in? That's just rude and potentially illegal.
