I guess I didn't make myself clear.

Straight from me. I was wondering why he didn't use his rear brake. the rider commented he usually does in this corner.

Go on, thinking I suggested him use rear brake while his rear was in the air. It sure was silly all the corresponding comments. Thus my original reply, "dumb question."

Again, I'd suffice to say it's much more difficult to ride a scooter than a motorcycle.

Rear break doesnt really matter. They are all right. Most people dont use it. I just figured I wouldnt lie, because I acutally do sometimes. However, its not necessary at all and can easily keep pace with out using it.

Secondly, yes, infact I do ride the street. But only on these bad boys

Directed to chubby.

Anyways listen hear paul, rear brakes CAN matter if used properly. Dont let TEXAS Trackers steer you from not using it. It takes skill, that just needs to be honed.

I don't ride street. But you knew that. You just wanted to find a way to insult me while still maintaining plausible deniability. At least when I call you a clown, I don't have to pose it as a question, I can just come right out and say it...

No, sorry I didn't know that. Like I even know who you really are. Regardless, it's funny how Trackers like you act like you are the be all end all in riding. Obviously, you are not.

again, you can't really know all their is when you are like the lemmings at the track that say stay off he rear brakes clowns.

You mean in exactly the same way you streeters do the same thing? Like in the quoted post? Plzgo.

And it's not like I've never ridden the street, I just choose not to anymore. I've probably street ridden in more places than you have. The only thing I lack is a boring-as- straightline mile tally that you're so proud of.

I COMPLTELY made it obvious that I said in fact I do sometimes. It doesnt really matter though, its personal preferance. There is much faster guys than me who wont touch the rear.
