Try I said 3 months, moron.

It's not hard, look through the turn while resting on the tank and hold myself on with the opposite leg hanging off a bit.....its funny how the only rip in my pants from that wreck is from me coming around that turn right below my knee eh? I couldn't walk on it for 1 1/2 weeks...dragging knee without knee pads = not fun. Only road rash I had was on my knee, due to I wear gear everywhere I ride.

Trust me, its going to be awhile before I get that confidence back to do it again, right hand turns are scary for me now (wrecked going right). More comfortable taking lefties.

I'm not as good as him, I'll tell you that, but i'm not lying about the reason I wrecked, nor am I lying about what happened.

If that's at all true, your friend will more than likely be dead soon if he keeps riding like that.

I don't think anyone needs a liter bike, it's just asking for trouble if you ask me, especially for riding on the street.

hopefully that won't happen, but i'm telling the truth about how he rides. I'm nowhere near as good as him, nor do I ride anything at all like him...infact I hate wheelies, i'm more into turns. Truthfully I'd rather take it to the track, but track days are very expensive....don't have $150-$200 to just throw around everytime I feel like making turns.

He has no chicken strips left on his bike at all (all the way to the edge), and he never races at the track, all done on the street....hes crazy.

That sounded a bit harsh on my part, sorry. I hope nothing like that hapens either. I live fairly close to Crabb as well, and am perfectly capable riding those sweepers at the same speed, but I chose to slow it down and just have fun if I go out there. I'm with ya on the wheelies though, in 2 1/2 years I've never had much interest in learning to do them at all. I'm more into turning as well, and tried my lil heart out to ride MSRH the 7th, but I need a new chain and sprockets, along with front pads before I get out there. I don't wanna put myself or anyone else on the track in what could be a bad situation.:/:

Nope. I started out on a r6 and I am on my second one at this time. 600 is fine, just gotta learn to behave with it.

Started off on a 750 monster. Because it was a standard bike and low to the ground; i thought it was a great bike to start with.

So you don't have money for the track but you have the money for the tickets and possible Bail money for getting popped on Crab River at those speeds?
Interesting.... Bet you have an aftermarket pipe on your bike also???

When I was in MSF, I told the instructor that I wanted a 250 to start with. After the classes he told me to not to buy the 250 and to step it up to a 500 or 600 and that I would regret the 250. I'm glad I listened. It wasn't hard learning the 600 if you take your time to learn them. Too many people buy 600/750/1000's and want to drive them like 250's and hurt themselves.

I see your angle, I have been down a few roads ( 600 and 750), and I like the liter, I love it. People over play the 1k on this forum, almost to the point where it's becomes comical. Perhaps not everyone should have a liter bike, I agree but honestly, it's not that big of a deal. Just use your head when you ride, and for those guys you see acting crazy all the time, that's not the bikes problem it's the rider. The displacement of the engine is irrelevant.
