Why in the world would you let your wife, with NO experience, on an R1?


Video was funny, anyway. I can't even mention how many times my rear tire has washed out during a turn - especially on 225.

Yeah, but a 1k with no experience is dangerous; nothing like those 250's at msf.

But get her a bike soon.

Glad you figured it out!

I'd leave those peg feelers on if I were you. They provide a good warning to hang off more and the small surface has less friction on it than digging a peg into asphalt, plus they're cheaper to replace than a peg if you do wear them out

If you are dragging peg, you're doing it wrong. Take that off and enjoy the ride. Just another thing to get caught on your boots when you are riding around town.
