Seriously... why is everyone so concerned with who can take turns the fastest? If you're not a lisenced racer or aspiring racer... who cares!?!

If you want to learn how to be fast... then go to a track and be prepared to be humbled, don't do it on the streets.

i don't think that the "whole" point of this thread was to find "who's better" ... you know what.. it's exactly what he "HAD" to state to some other "little poster"..


this thread was a curiosity thread... not a "who's best" so don't take it the wrong way, sit down and just be a part of it..

why are you people taking so seriouslY??????????????????????????

holy ... would you like a kleenex to dry your tears or a rag to wipe your ...

it's a curiosity thread.. and if Pete didnt start it.. I probably would have....

and I'm just saying

:just be true:

:just be true:
The truth about this is, is that someone is gonna get seriously hurt or worse if this t about being a superstreet rider keeps coming up. How many people fom here and HI have died this year? One of my buddies from HSN is paralyzed from the chest down because of fast street riding. When's it gonna be enough? Will it stop when one of your best friends gets seriously hurt? Is that the threshold?

I'm gonna respond like this every time a post like this comes up... that's just the way its' gonna be.

I agree in a way. Stuff like this should be kept at the track, but this post was jsut merely a curiousity question and everyone flames on it. But real quick, I'm not argueing with you in any way, but lets say for example, a guy watches the isle of man videos and is hyped up for speed, he goes out on the street and tries to take fast turns out of his ability, is that the videos fault or his fault? If people do something stupid and kill themselves, its thier fault, harsh to say but its true, I know the risks im taking everyday i start my bike, and if anything ever happened to me on the streets, its my fault and no one elses

too late....in the morning I went over my head and took a turn going uphill and then downhill over 90mph! and then I decided to take the next at over 100mph...'cause the last one was so easy to take....all of the sudden I couldn't stop myself and so....awww screw...jk

just stick to what you know, don't overdue your skills and don't push yourself before tuning your basic skills...if you are then you need to be in a safe controlled environment (wherever that may be, me well I preted to go to the track w/ these suprestars... :laughing6 :laughing6 )

I see where you're coming from... but the fact that you're "ready to die" on your motorcycle isn't the big deal here. The fact of the matter is that you're putting other people at risk. Back in 2000 I was riding with a group of guys, one got out of control and took out another rider (his best friend). The best one who caused the accident spent several weeks in the hopital but he's ok, the one who he hit... died.

Ever see a motorcycle Tbone a car?

Ever see a motorcyclist run someone off the road?

Ever see a motorcyclist cause damage to others property?

Ever see a motorcyclists family at his/her funeral?

You're not just putting yourself in harms ways... you're putting everyone around in harms way. That's the part the bothers me the most. , the first time I dragged a knee was on the streets. I've been tehre and done that... for some reason spared me. I just want others to realize it's not just them who they are putting in danger.
