i aint downing what your saying but you must not have much experience on a bike like a busa. everytime your in the throttle its gonna power wheelie. its all about the back brake and throttle control.

I'm happy to report for those of you that don't already know, Xanthea was able to make it out to the LaHacienda meet last night, she is scraped up on her right side and sore of course but getting around and showing her support for MH. What a trooper. For those who don't know her I will say that she is one of the coolest chicks I've ever met. I'll be glad when she gets to feeling better.

Do I have to point out the oxymoron here?

Responsible for stopping, yes. But NOT responsible since they don't have a class M license. Geesh, the MSF course is so easy to take and get a license. I'm sorry, but that is squidly behavior.

Come on people we're reading a thread about someone we like, who could've gotten killed. When is it going to sink in? Riding without a class M license and the MSF course is just dumb. When I took the MSF class there were some guys in there who'd been riding 30 years without a license and thought they knew it all. They turned out to be some of the worst riders, had years of bad habits, and little knowledge of street safety or bike physics.

For example: You said going 70 is not too hot for that area? I don't know all the factors involved but here's a few things to consider: It's dark. You're on crappy Houston streets. You said the gravel was at the top of the hill. Could you see the top of the hill or just over it as you approached? If not then you were overdriving your vision (which is different from overdriving your headlight). Slowing down until you see the entire road surface would have been the street smart thing to do because then the gravel may have been seen and possibly avoided all together.

Just two months back I had a similar incident happen on 290. I was cruising along at 70 in broad daylight. I came up over a little rise in the freeway and THERE WAS A WHOLE FREAKIN' PALLET in my lane. Well I had left myself no where to go because I was going too fast and couldn't see that part of the road as I approached. I didn't have enough time to swerve. So I had no choice but to square up to it and roll on the throttle to lighten the front end. (This is a basic skill taught in the MSF class.) I ran over that pallet without a problem. The MSF class saved me when I had left myself no other option. Sure, I can blame the person who dropped the pallet, but really I have to blame myself for overdriving my vision.

My point to Poptarts and others: Take the MSF class. Get your license and learn that street ridng on a motorcycle is much different than a car. Quit being a squid.

Xanthea, get well soon. I am soooo glad you're just a little beat up. I'll be glad to help you fix your bike but it sounds like you have plenty of helpers.

True. Sometime it's hard to tell sarcasm in writing because you lose tone. I'm sorry if I misinterpreted the intent of speedaedeesi's post. But the rest of my point is valid.

Yes Sir!! Your right. Another thing I see is riders hauling A and then passing a vehicle after almost kissing their rear bumper!! Tailgating is bad enough but on a motorcycle its really asking for trouble...
please ride responsibly
