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.
I see where your coming from and u are completely right, but like i said, it was jsut a curiousity question but this was probably a bad subject to make a thread

You don't say hmmm my skill level is at 100mph for the twisties. Every turn is differnt, some are short, some are long, some are sharp, and some are sweepers. I've taken turns at 20mph at the twisties, and some at 145mph.

It all matters eon what road you're on, and what TYPE OF TURN IT IS.

What's a twistie? <-- a turn?

I've been out to crabb once.. was very disappointed. Someone told me I could go out there to practice my turns but there wasn't much to practice. Been out to Racer once. Liked it so much better. I was going thru those turns at 70. don't know if that's good or not, but it was good enough for me. I learned to lean a lot more that day. the feeling was awesome!

why are you "learning" to lean on the streets and trying to corner fast on the streets so you can veer off the road and hit a tree..........
