It's all good man. i knew what I was getting myself into

we need to set up a wheelie practice spot somewhere in the SE and then we will see who can keep up
I know a few good spots


And 42 I never got over 60mph and only tapped the brake once or twice. In that road it's slow relaxing winding road and lots of trees. I never downshift or anything just roll on and off the throttle and enjoy the quietness around you

maybe once my tax return ever gets here i can invest in a cheap 600cc just for trips like this.
An ADV bike!

Sorry guys for having to bail. After the first front tire slip my mind just wasn't right. Every shadowed curve I thought was wet and would go into survival mode( tense up, squeeze the bars, target fixation). I just couldn't get myself reset so I had to check my ego and so what I thought was the safest thing for me (go put the bike away). I would like to blame the bike but I tore the front end apart and nothing was wrong with it. Tire pressure was good, wheel is balanced, etc. I think PB was right, must hav been my skinny jeans anyway I just wanted to thank everyone who was on the ride with us. You all were very helpful

It happens bud, in addition to those things check your suspension settings, when toe compressed your forks it looked like a dual sport it was so spongy, worth looking into

Suspension was ok. Rechecked when I got home. Rebound, sag, and compression was on point.

Once your mind trip yourself then it's hard to get relaxed and enjoy the ride , all good brother no worries and I really appreciate that you texted me lettinge know you two turned around to head home , those shadows do make the road look wet but it was dry as and you were tensed up like , and also I forget how easy the Gsxr's are to ride since I been only riding my ninja

If your not leading the ride then your always traveling faster than the ones in front of you
