How long have you been riding and how hard do you plan on riding the twisties?? This is Houston, not the clean roads of IOM. There's always something on the street.

I just love these track/street, street/track threads. Truth is riding motorcycles is dangerous people get lifeflighted from the track all the time. My friend had a very bad head injury at the track. I had a very bad injury on the street. Do what YOU want to do on your bike, just be ready, prepared, and willing to accept the consequence. I do not know many who ride the track, and try to consistently improve their laps that haven't wadded their bike up. And I do not know many who have took a fall at speed on the street who did not get hurt. So I guess I'm trying to say you are much more likely to crash at the track, and less likely to crash ,but much more likely to get hurt in a crash on the street

I've seen first hand more crashes on the track that I can remember and hear about 6x more where the rider picks his/her bike up and rides away

only one life flight and that guy was fine too

almost all of them the rider is fine, there are no cars to things up

I don't think you can compare that to the street. Crashes on the street seem to be way worse. Folks usually end up in the hospital.

I ride both but I never have the close, near death experiences on the track like I do on the street.

You are not more likley to crash on the track.

The big difference is that, on the track, everybody understand and accept the risks they are taking.

You go out on public roads, you could mow down a gaggle of pedestrians or plow into a minivan full of toddlers, none of whom signed any waiver and sure as heck do NOT accept to be in your destructive path.

That first statement doesn't even begin to hold water. Just check out the "not good for trackdays " thread. That's just one example there is always someone blaming someone else's incompetance (sp)? for them going down at the track or the street. Weather it be another rider up,TD org ,corner worker, locals throwing on the road, whatever. The rest would be accepting the consequence for your actions, be it jail, hospital, wheel chair, or a pine box. Which should be common sense, but knows that ain't so common anymore. And again OP do what makes YOU happy on and with your bike. No matter if it's at the track, cruising on the streets, being a complete idiot down some half assed back road(not advised)or trying to make the 610 loop in record time. You are the one who has to live or die with YOUR decision.

Are you retarded? The people that are hurt or killed by a novice motorcyclist driving out on the street also have to live with (or die because of) his decision. Those people did not accept the possible consequences for some asshat being a douche all over the open streets.

I don't think so. Again for the cheap seats (I DO NOT CONDONE RIDING LIKE AN ) but it is YOUR CHOICE and responsibility. If you hurt someone riding like an ,then there is going to be a price to pay, not too much different than getting behind the wheel after a few beers, it is irresponsible and if you hurt someone your in DEEP (and very well should be). right or wrong it is YOUR choice and responsibility. I'm not an advocate for the street or the track.

Yeah, if you hurt someone then there is a price to pay, and the innocent pedestrian already paid it. My point is that you are making it sound like you only can hurt yourself but that's not true. I completely agree with you in the sense that if you wanna get on the track, that is your decision and even if someone collides with you, you have to understand that you accepted the conditions to get on the track and race. The general public did not accept the fact that motorcycles will blow by them at triple the speed limit when they chose to get on the road. In one instance you're potentially injuring people who knew what they were in for and signed up anyway, while in the other you are injuring people who had no part in it and no decision about it.

Valid points all, but the question was are there any places to find curved roads near Houston, not ride track or not.

OP don't think about Memorial drive, the curvy part runs through a neighborhood, past several school zones, a police station and it is almost always crowed with soccer moms and grandparents during the week and patrolled heavily by the police during prime weekend hours. I ride it everyday to and from work and on the weekends to get out of town.

OP hasn't replied since he started the tread............................

I'm still interested in what his intensions are on that Daytona.
Are you planning on draggin knee on city streets or just wanna tip a little bit?
Do you have any idea how the 773H to ride that thing or are you a noob that thinks he's got it under control?

Let me tell you about an over confident dead friend of mine.....
