Well, since you are so fast on the streets and nobody can tell you what to do then take your curb feelers off but I am guessing that your are pushing the bike down more then you are leaning with it.

I think I have an idea who you are Bats...

...Al told me about your lil peg draggin' episode

Where ya ridin that allows for that much corner speed boy? Other than our lil I-10 to 610 turn...oh and I think what the majority of the guys on here are saying is:

1) Ridin fast enough to scrape on the street = BAD
2) There is a given order of doing things. Knee then toe then peg
3) Scraping the peg (which diminishes the down force applied to the tires) = bad in most any situation
4) if you are that far over, you are approaching the "centimeter" mark of your contact patch (see what happened to Rossi last year when he got too far over)
5) If you are that far over and are tucking your knee (body position is off, I can't really speak here because as you well know...I do that same chit because I no have knee pucks)

I think what needs to be explained is the "why" that order mentioned in (2) needs to happen and why each tier is important. Now I'm no track guy so I leave that to folks like Jimmy but I know that it has something to do with knowing "where" you are quid pro quo, given proper body positioning (i.e. shoulders facing the turn, correct body-bike lean ratio): if your knee is down, you have "x" amount of patch left, toe begins to drag you have "x2" amount of patch left and you are protecting against disrupting the forces propelling your bike through the turn on both wheels. If you hit the peg and continue riding it, you are pretty much rolling the dice and so on and so forth. Basically, we all need to go to the track to learn the right way AND to have the perfect venue to test the edges of our ability. I can't wait to go, just kind of apprehensive because the amount of money required to keep up such a hobby can be a bit taxing. :/:

There are people that will help you get started, get faster and get better. I promise that you will like it so much, you will lose some interest in riding on the street.
PM me if you want more details/info you won't be sorry.
Does it cost to get into MSRH just to watch and hang out? Track days are a little ways off for me yet...

Anybody's welcome to come out to watch.
As Tom said, you can also work for a day and ride for a day free.

Paying for the occasional track day wouldn't be a problem, I'm just worried about trashing the bike and having to explain that to the wife. I'll be looking for a 600 class track bike at some point, but like I said that's a ways off in my future.

I would love to get into the scene though even if I'm not the one out on the track.

in a nice courteous gesture......if you can't afford the gear....you can't afford the ride.

you really shouldn't be riding the way you are if you can't afford the gear. skin graphs and ambulance bills cost A WHOLE LOT MORE than proper gear. you can easily get a cheap set of used leathers for around $150....some used boots for about $50-150. and i'm sure you already have helmet and gloves. gear is actually not that expensive if you shop around.

i'm not bashing the way you ride, because i've been down that road not too long ago. i'm just lucky i learned from other people's mistakes, and not my own. it's not until you experience the actual ride that you understand why people bash others for dumb choices. some bash for fun....some bash because we don't want to see another rider down.

when you hit the track, and find the limits of you and your bike....you'll know why proper gear is the only way to roll.

Tony's a good man.
He's just trying to help you.

If you ever go down, he'll also take care of your bike.

Yep, that stupid shake has been kickin my ...the new chain and sprkts will be here Thursday so as soon as I install them I will be back in business. The only problem is that I will have to re-learn my bike because I went up 3...lots o torque to figure out in the curves...gonna be even more torquey than b4 which may pose a bit of a problem at least initially. O well! I still ride though bro so I should see yall tmrw night and the rest of the week...only time I feel any wobble is when I whoolie n get close to bp or on decel (on two wheels)...not a problem when on the throttle though...

You'll also learn the proper way to roll in your gear.

oh i know what u mean, and i agree, i dont wanna see myself hurt either.
right now i probably sound like some crazy dude thinking its cool to drag his peg on the houston streets without proper gear, hahaha but i assure you, thats not the case. im a very conservative rider and i wear all the gear i own everytime i ride,(helmet,gloves,jacket)

sigh, you guys are gonna get me addicted to the track, then im really gonna be broke.
