quit bullshitting with a tard. Pretty dumb idea, and you'll get bored of that . Get a new bike, and route away. Its still fun, but with the right people, not with a bunch of schmucks

After being almost taken out by idiots on the 2 routes I did back in ASI days, I stopped. Now I just brave the HOV lane if I'm riding in town.

I think the same way Ivan....a tard is a good additional bike in your garage but you will get bored and miss that adrenaline rush ......regarding your 250 for the track, sure its much cheaper.....
So bottom line ,forget the tard and get a new bike!!!!!!

I grew up around it. I don't care if I get flamed for it either. I have seen too many go down and too many hurt. And been to one to many funerals. And even had some people caught. Will i do it again? Maybe for the rush? Who knows. I went out last night and for those who went, it was a much more controlled manner then it used to be. As I didn't want to leave anyone behind. Back then it was to the wall. Lights flashed that meant I was pinned. I had a bad wreck in 2010 and it took me a while but I got back out. I defintlly do not do it much any more but sometimes you just want that rush,,?

What pot holes, what trash...? We know nothing about what you speak of.

helll yes it was amazing. def want to do it again, yes it pretty stupid and dangerous, but its fun as . lmao ask Eric my face at the end of the ride I just walked up and I was speechless hahah


but yeah just like racerxxx mentioned... you have a small screw up on there. youre not going skid off the road and maybe slide through some grass like you do at the track or sometimes on the backraods (youre not going nearly as fast on backroads either) you will most likely die.

Some people I used to do them with still do..


Now, I just love killing the clovers
Joining the darkside? That's why I sold the liter bike and got a tard after my kiddo was born. More fun at slower speeds. Just make sure you get one that is close to being done already. Gets expensive.

Is that a joke or is it that you can't see couches, ladders, truck tire treads, chunks of concrete, lumber, logs, etc.

I always liked it, many people were much faster than me so I kept to the back of the line. I was a fresh noob. I rode within my limits and still had a blast.


You still do it?

Not really. I haven't done one of those for a while now. I also haven't done any group riding lately, until my bike is running up to par.


I know this might have potential to be derailed, but let's try

Just a convo.

Would you do it again?

Yes, definitely. Out of all the negativity one can think this condones, I've learned a lot of great riding tips and styles from going on some of these rides. Especially when you plan them out, we have people that follow the rules which makes things much easier.

I dont know what you're talking bout... never seen chunks of concrete, couches, lumber, logs or ladders. That must have been an interesting ride . been doing it for a couple years, & retiring swiftly, now I have seen tire treads a few times, never rolled over any though.
