[QUOTE=Htownz;894029]that I'm "going to wreck my first bike" or did you "lay it down yet". [QUOTE]

I've been riding for 5 years, haven't crashed yet. Have't even been close to crashing. And I drive Fast!

Just be smart about riding. Some accidents just happen, that's why they call them accidents. But then again, the rest are just people being stupid and not paying attantion.

4. How do you control a rear wheel skid?

Control of a rear wheel skid is easy. Just keep your eyes up to the horizon and look where you WANT to go (not necessarily where you are actually going) and the bike will skid in a controllable manner with a minimum of fishtailing. Basic and advanced braking techniques are best learnt under controlled conditions rather than when a truck pulls out on you! Your local motorcycle school will run a fun braking exercise session for you and some mates if you care to call the school and arrange it.

.
Skidding the rear brake is a RUSH and a blast. I try to get the bike fishtalling sideways like a crossup on a m/x bike. It really trips cagers out coming up behind them at a light. Why not scare them a little they scare us all the time.

All training is good. Another method I use to stay upright is to pretend I am playing a video game. I pretent that all the cars are enemies that are trying to take me out and I adjust my position on the street to compensate them for doing bone head manuevers to take me out. Always have an escape route. If there is not an escape route like you between a cage and wall don't go there wait till there is. I mean you constantly got to be anticipating them doing stupid things. Makes the ride a little stressful but better being stressed then laid out in the hospital. That is why I like riding in the country better you only really have to worry about gravel and animals there. I have crashed twice on the streets(besides silly parking lot get offs) in 24 years of street riding. Also I really think looks out for me for some reason.

Rider inexperiance coupled with SS bike minimal margin for error is a major factor in you being introduced to the asphalt. I firmly agree as stated above that either you have or will lay it down.

Maybe he should start with a cruiser. I think that is what helped me. I have almost 20 years street riding experience before I ever threw my leg over a SB.

Gixxerbill- You're right. Seems like you got to be seen when you have to, otherwise stay invisbile in a sense. I feel you on the borrowed time with as well. There's a fine line there in taking advantage of your extra lives, and stepping back..

As with every accident car or bike you prepair for the the worst and hope for the best. with the bike there is just a steeper penalty for having an accident

+1 all you can do is prepare and hope it doesn't happen. but if you know that it's likely to happen, it can help get your mind straight and maybe help to avoid going down.

You're right too. That is why I ride my gixxer very little on the street has saved me a bunch. Have you done a trackday it will really help you learn what your bike is capable of in a safer enviroment. Plus you can haul without worrying about coppers.
