I'm riding on a plugged tire... it's why I did a "cruise" ride today... I need to get it replaced (or properly patched) before I'll be able to ride with the likes of you.

From the rumors I hear.

We still need to get you some boots, and some leathers, then.... you'd be set.

I was the same way at first also. To counter this problem I went to a parking lot and all I did was right hand turns. About 30 minutes in the parking lot I felt a lot better about them. Now I can't hardly tell the difference from left/right turn.

I started riding street in May 07, so my suggestion is to practice your weakness as much as possible. You should come attend one of my Forest rides. I'll be planning one for this coming weekend on Saturday or Sunday. There are a lot of easy twisties - not even sure you can call them twisties compared to some roads.

FYI: If you plan it for Sunday, Solyjr and I, can attend. Otherwise, we'll be busy on Saturday.

It will most likely be Sunday.

For anyone interested in seeing video footage of our ride down to Galveston I've posted the videos on my livevideo page (click link in sig).

If you look at my video log page photo section you can see the modification i made to my helmet. The camera is a Kodak v705 (the v570 has the same video features).
