I didn't make any claims about you, I made a statement about possible dangers. You decided to take it as an affront.

Maybe a tad slower, but with more intelligent discourse and less spam/bullshit...maybe less members ending up in the hospital, or pushing up daisies. Whole slew of possibilities.

I don't have to know you or how you ride to make a statment of something that is a possibility...but your response displays your own ignorance and lack of experience.
I can go further and point out that just as I don't know you and yours, you don't know me and myne...rather than getting upset, maybe you'd be better served by just listening.
My mistake... I guess I thought you were talking to me since you quoted me.

Not really sure the point you're trying to make. What I'm saying is me trying to improve my skill level as a rider was limited by the capabilities of the bike I was using.

Heres a little clip I made shortly after I bought my sportster. I had only a few weeks of riding experience. My friend and I just layed out some cones and practiced whatever.

I tried to get better as a rider but I knew a cruiser wasn't the best choice for me. So I went with the R6. This video was in my noobie days so laugh away. lol

I was, the issue was your comprehension of the other aspects of what was written.

Do a trackday and learn how to ride the bike the way it's suppose to and that in time will make you a safer/faster rider. Trying to keep up or ride above your head is the reason a lot of people been going down lately.

Same goes to Thayleal

Hope to see y'all out at a trackday!
im just being a troll and giving him a hard time. i have no intentions of riding outside of my ability.

The rider is often the limitation over the hardware. Nor is it pointless, his comment, is merely a variant of that found by neophytes to quickly jump displacment.

Yeah MkGSXR and VegasKid...We just joshing each other.. a little friendly internet competition ... on the street its a whole different ball game. I would never actually encourage him to "race" me and I would never "race" him.. I just hide behind my keyboard and shittalk YamiR6s and their noob riders... This means you VegasKid

On the real though, I always encourage people to ride their ride... and be safe because I know I don't want to break me or my bike and I don't wish that on anyone else.

Informative post, and worthwhile. This site gets a fair amount of traffic, and every reminder like this will hopefully find a receptive set of eyeballs.
