it does suck to see all the rider down threads, but being safe isnt always the only answer.

its jose garcia thats gonna kill your in houston....cant read the traffic signs so he wont stop for ya.
try to be less racist in this thread, that will bring up a whole next issue about illegals driving with out liscense that should not be limited to hispanics

Yes I know that MSF is my next step but I am planning to take that as I get closer towards the purchase of my bike and you never know I might hate the feel of the bike through MSF and it may not be for me but that is a price that i am willing to take even if it means loosing my money on what I have purchased so far. So call it what people want but all the jokes towards squids, the hall of shame, and the flaming of certain riders and what not, are all small details that have changed this noob from making a bad choice and I gatta say that I look up to you all no matter what you fall under.

But curious as to know if say that its my 1st day after the purchase of a bike, would it be to much trouble to ask a fellow rider or start a thread and ask to meet at a lot to practice basic movements. I mean dont get me wrong but is that not what we are here for, to look out for one another. Because I feel more relaxed and would love for someone to "spot" me and at me if I do wrong. Would it be so wrong to say that I need help?

Touchy subject; but when you get comfortable enough to ride on the streets, we can give pointers as we ride... You'll learn more by riding w a group that will ride with your pace so you can learn lines, watch traffic and make yourself 'seen' on the road.

Female passengers learn alot quicker because they usually rode 2 up w someone and have seen how they ride with groups etc... That said, no... You may not ride on the back of my bike lol...

True. I've noticed a somewhat different outlook on life altogether after I started riding, knowing the risk each time. The times when you feel like you were about to eat it while cornering, or just hearing these accidents makes you feel like your on borrowed time in a way. Why a 2 year old on a tricycle gets run over or seeing what could have appeared to be a preventative accident all effect how we gauge that risk. In any event, it's always good to know you're still around in a sense.

+1 to the helping a friend get a feel for the bike. I sold my 250cc to the woman who took MSF with Squoddy and I. She hasn't been on a bike since the class last August. She asked me to go with her to the school parking lot and "remind" her. After 2 1/2 hours she looked like a pro. Figure 8's, quick stops, shifting. I didn't "TEACH" her anything new. But one of the first things she said asked after 10 minutes was "Why does the bike keep going wrong in the turns?" I reminded her to turn right, push left. Then I lined the bike up and told her to PUSH with her right hand to turn (Front wheel went Left... Go figure) It was like a light went on in her head. Plus she had the shift backwards, so she was trying to start in 4th and down to first. Can you imagine how bad this would have been if she had just gotten her M and gotten on the road with no one to help? Sometimes the reminder is all we need. Plus, it was a lot of fun. She's getting her M this week. Very, very cool!

Good Idea Omega. Find a spot, start a sign up list and see what happens. Bill it as an "I ride better than you do!" Contest

Most German cars are for the simple fact of insurance rating. Easily over writtable...

then again, most vehicles are set up as 'family cars' with back seats and seatbelts whether people can actually fit that there or not, for insurance purposes. The 'supercars' in the sense of flagships of speeds from each manufactorers dont concern themselves with the prices of customer services after the sales. Hence the reasons why some of the high end supercars come with the 1000ml/8hr tires.

given the fact that 99.9% of kids cannot afford a supercar... Yet most can afford a 10K bike...

thats why there are limits applied to bikes and not "cars" built for maximum speed....

It's like someone previously said... Get the class first and foremost...
Then experience, the key is to ride well within your limits when your learning, never ever ever, push yourself or your bike. You can do this solo, or in groups it don't matter, it's nice to get tips but... Tips are someone else's opinion, and opinions can/are like but holes, everyone has one and they all stink! Well maybe not all but...

Anyhow the best thing is time in the saddle, lots of experience, you will learn your bike and yourself
