Statistically the odds are not in your favor, so just be careful. Its not only the power, it is the handling that gets people; the bike will do you what you tell it, even if it is wrong. Smaller and older bikes are more forgiving and a lot easier to learn on, and if you do lay it down so what its just an old learner bike anyway.

Azylum, GSS had work days for track time this past weekend. Since I am loaded with dough I don't know why my dumb was out their building tire walls with a few other track riders. It sounds like you would ride on the track if you could afford it. Were you out there working for track time?

last time i was on it.. going into the turn i start from the outside then i work my way into inside of the turn.. i learned the hardway. i hit one of those lane divide markers and my rear tire got all squiggly and almost caused a high side. thats why its been a few months since i been on there :laughing6

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.
So now you do the classic 'retaliation and rebutal.' It's common when people are on the losing side of an arguement. :laughing6

Where did I say anything about my skills? I'm no pro, nor claim to be. But I have been riding for almost 8 years, have done 16 trackdays, have raced TMGP for 2 years and have done over 60k street miles. But I'm still learning and I always take advice from those who know more about the sport than me.

Most likely, I am "far ahead of you with experience and knowledge" so maybe I know more about this topic than you. Maybe you can learn something from me if you wouldn't dismiss my comments as petulant ramblings.

But again, I'm not angry... infact I think your bike is fantastic, but I don't think you should be on it. I've seen it too often, newer rider on a 1000cc hurts themselves and sometimes others around them. Hopefully you won't be that guy.

To each their own, I wish you the best of luck and maybe someday you will be better than me. But until then, I know more about motorcycling and have more experience than you do. It might be wise to try to learn from those around you.

Oooh, oooh... one last comment. :laughing6

More than likely the reason your back end slid around on you is because you were using only back brack. It's very common error in newer riders. If you had gotten hard on your front brakes your back might have come up on you, but not around.

Maybe I do know something about this sport... :laughing6 :laughing6 :laughing6

you missed the point of my comment. everytime someone posts a comment about doing something, ANYTHING, on the street, even if its NOT hauling or stunting, the "track brigade" jumps in and starts flaming. its one thing to recommend to people to go to the track to actually learn how to ride the bikes (which im all for that), but its a totally different thing to completely talk down to someone for riding on the street at all. i didnt buy my bike for the track. does that make an irresponsible rider? no, it does not. you told him to go to the track to "learn how to lean", right? hey, THATS GREAT. my original post on this thread was not in response to yours, it was to the bandwagoneers.

Did you already forget why you had to make a memorial video just 2 weeks ago?

There is a reason people step and and say take it to the track...

:notworthy

You are RIGHT. And I'm not being sarcastic. So you have a million more miles than me on street, 16 more trackdays, and 2 more years of experience racing TMGP. Those are facts right?? Well these are facts as well, I am a newer rider, and I bought and R1 so thats what I'm going to be learning on, right?? K

I feel immature now and a bit embarassed for arguing but I don't like it when you can't post a thread without a neg comment or two.

So thank you for the good luck Sir Steve-O and ditto to you :icon_bigg

Just remember to think with your head and not with your wrist.. SPECIALLY WITH A R1....

I still don't think I posted anything negative... I wasn't trying to bash you, just stating the obvious. I just have seen bad news come from situations like this all too often.

Since you're going to be out on the R1, be careful. MotoHouston has had a bad year so far and we really don't need anything more. You've made your bed, now you have to sleep in it. I just hope there aren't any bed bugs. :icon_bigg

Best of luck out there brother...
