I just googled what a tmax is. Looks like a scooter. And that would not be something I would rock, i'd prefer a Vespa.

I don't understand how you can just fall over without breaking traction.

All of this is explained in the OldSchool School for Noobs That Can't Ride Real Good and Want to Learn Some Other Stuff I Made Up.

Must be drunk doing karaoke to attend...

It does whatever the you want it to when you're wasted after karaoke.
Lesson #1. Everybody knows that .

Also, if you were oldschool, you'd use while since whilst is actually a newer word. You're doing your SN injustice.

Bevo does not have to explain his elf if he doesn't want to. He adopted it fair and square.

Yeah no.

You maintain a slightly increased throttle because due to physics, tire scrubbing/rolling radius changes you will slow down in a turn otherwise.

Adding more thottle than maintenance will cause the bike to want to stand up and run wide. Chopping the throttle drops the nose, decreases trail and tightens the turn.
