I mean i feel like i could have highlighted this entire post, where am i sounding like I have something to prove? wtf?

hahah true,yeah im cool with chilling in the back doing my own thing. wish i could ride like every single weekend like these guys..

So do I; but I'm not going to risk my life or any of my bikes to impress anyone! To me it's more impressive coming back home in 1 piece. Just remember, none of these guys has ever earned a red cent riding fast! They do it becuase they enjoy it, and they have the skill to do it.

I have not had issues with cops at the Clovers yet. One night around 1:30 we were about 6 just riding round and round while there was a cop car just chilling in the grass. Only until that one got on is that there has been anything.

Merging traffic, I'll give you I guess, but it's not blind and you have plenty if time to adjust speed just like any other road.

Sketchy road surface?? No not at all, that day you said your tire was sliding, Rykoson and I didn't feel anything at all. And till this day I have not had any issues with the road surface... So again, don't really know what you mean.
IF COMING FROM 610 ON MEMORIAL. THE 3RD LOOP ON THE CLOVER THE EXIT SEEMS LIKE THE CONCRETE HAS WORN DOWN AND THERE ARE JUST SLICK ROCKS ON THE SURFACE. I CAN FEEL MY FRONT TIRE WALK OUT A LITTLE EVERY TIME I GO THROUGH THERE. THAT IS ON s20'S AND Q2'S

Hmmmm...you're talking about the one with the apartments to the left of it. Feeds to memorial.

I don't know, but I haven't felt that even when I rode my SS on it....interesting enough I had Diablos on that bike just like my monster...


We should go ride it some weekday during the day when it's sunny or on a nice Sunday. Traffic isn't bad.

In no way shape or firm is that a challenge, just like riding it during the day. Much better than at night.

The problem is not the wiringthe problem is you know very well that you will like it....dragging knees on 1489 is the same rush than dragging knee on sugar and spice when you know you are coming in too hot....
And you know also that we have a BORC sig waiting for you
you can be the HalFFast prez and BORC ,NO conflict of interest there
