Agreed. Count me in those numbers. Especially on an HD.

Just move to Taiwan or Japan where space is limited and you will learn that in a few months, over here where roads are so wide open that type of maneuver is hardly ever used.

Do miles while dreaming count?

I remember one time as I was on the verge of sleep, that first stage which sensory input is registered but hardly recognized, I was hallucinating myself lanesplitting with my eyes closed. One of those passing colorless car shapes headed straight toward me and I jerked wide awake.

I used to dream of riding all the time when I first started.

Thank you for returning some sanity to this thread. The thread that's supposed to be about how long we been riding.

Don't blame it on me.

It all started with NOOBRIDER.

The OP said two wheels, and then he went there. I always enjoy bantering with noobs thereafter.

There went any chance at sanity for this thread.

Don't forget about tire diameter and width.
Or steering geometry.
Or seating/foot peg position.
Or the way an auto clutch supplies the power the throttle demands.
Or
Or


They are different, TMAX is just trying to stir controversy, as always.

14 years, not sure about how many miles I've chalked up, it's been quite a few lol
I've done it all, except track (road course) so that's on my bucket list for next year.
