Lol thank you Azylum. I'm not trying to start any here, all I wanted was for people to be happy I found somewhere to practice :-)

Yea maybe the thread sounds a bit noobish but ****, I haven't heard of anyone who got their first bike and was pro. I could be wrong though :confused1

Anyhow, I'm sure there are plenty of people in the SE that enjoy pearland parkway as well.

And p.s. I really hope I get to go to the track on the 16th, been looking foward to a trackday.

You shouldn't hate on people who get a 1000 as their first bike, not EVERYONE squids around and kills themself. And by going around some nice turns at a decently (safe) speed, I do not see that as squidy. Not to mention I wear gear.

So YES, I know it isn't the place, and YES I'm going to the track. So no more thread whoring!
Spare me your "i'm smart and safe and mature and can start on a 1000 cause i'm skilled and i took msf and i ride slow and only on curvy roads" line.... :laughing6

All I did was utilize an emoticon... if you want noob bashing and thread whoring just let me know and I'll lay into you. :icon_bigg

BTW, no matter how mature or safe you think you are being, fact of the matter is a 1000cc superbike gives you an EXTREMELY small margin for error. So even if you are riding safe, one small unexpected occurance (squirrel runs in front of you) can cause you to hurt yourself or someone else because you don't have the skills/know how to handle a bike like that.

Sorry Sir Steve-O. I guess on a 250 or a 600 a squirrel is nothing to worry about, ONLY on a 1000 because smaller bikes move themselves outta the way of harm, thats why EVERYBODY goes from a 50cc, to a 125cc, to a 250cc, to a 500, to a 600, to a 750 then MAYBE if they are good enough a 1000. Gotcha! Thanks for the tips, I need more pros like you to teach me because I have a 1000 and don't know what to do with it.

I really wasn't getting irritated until this comment, I just didn't want this to turn into something like you're last post made it, a "you're a new rider and you got a 1000!, OMG, O.M.G...you're gonna die squid!" thread.

[QUOTE=Azylum]no. some people just like to make themselves sound superior by repeating "take it to the track". news flash for ya: if we ALL had that kind of dough, then we'd ALL be at the track ALL the time. enough already. we heard you the first eight million times. nothing wrong with having a little fun now and again without being excessive. you DO know you can get killed going in a straight line doing the speed limit, right?QUOTE]

OK not trying to sound superior. just trying to keep it safe!! it I am not even gonna argue with this one, just sure hope I dont see yalls name on the next thread of in the hospital/deaths!!:eh:

Thanks 50.

I was going to leave it alone too, and just keep praying that I don't end up another story becuase regaurdless of experience a lot of riders have been going down. Steve-O just got to me a little bit, but no harm no foul :-)

Kickass new nickname... Sir Steve O. :laughing6

See, you're so blind with rage you can't even see the message in what I wrote.

MARGIN OF ERROR...

Have you REALLY gotten hard on your brakes? To the point where your back tire is skimming the ground? Your R1 has perhaps the best brakes on any Japanese production bike available today...

Have you REALLY gotten hard on the throttle? Your bike has the ability to loop you over backwards in 4th gear with a bad clutch hand...

Have you REALLY changed direction quickly? There is a reason why the R1 is winning in WSBK and a frontrunner in AMA SBK despite large HP disadvantages, the bike is an amazing cornering machine...

Now I'm definitely NOT saying you shouldn't ride your R1, knows I'd love to have one. But you are absolutely, 100% better off with a bike that won't likely lip you over backwards or forwards when you make a mistake. When you have a larger margin of error, you're better off, plain and simple. An older 600, Ninja 250 or 500 would give you that margin of error, help you learn the ropes and still give you the 2 wheeled thrill you're looking for. Plus, bike of that nature tend to help rider learn to take corners quicker. You don't have 160hp to help you out on the straights, so you have to keep your corner speed up.

And for the squirrel comment... knows I pray that your first emergency manuever is for a squirrel and not a car, truck or something immobile.

Soooo... take the pole out of your , stop trying to justify your purchase (I could care less) and do'nt jump to conclusions.

LMAO Azn :laughing6

Ok Steve-O

Yes I have been hard on the brakes to where my rear tire starts to slide out to avoid hitting a truck that did not have brakelights. No I have not gotten near looping my bike because I practice having good throttle control. Yes occasionally when I am clear of any avoidable hazards I roll on it to bring the front end up and get used to the power in case I do have a bad clutch hand or any other instance. Yes occasionaly I slam on the brakes to get used to how my bike reacts in case of an emergancy.

You my friend are the one who seems to have built up rage

And since you are so far ahead of me with experience and knowledge, why aren't you pro yet? Just because I didn't start out on the same bike you did, doesn't mean I wont be as good/better rider than you one day. So chiiiiillllll ouuuuuttttt homeboy, life is too short.
