I like casual backroads with a few and far spirited moments and enjoyed the track when I was riding it.

i know it doesnt apply down here, but mountain riding is the best thing ever! if you ever go to colorado, ride highway 550 from durango to ouray. its beautiful.
ive been through "the forest" once. would like to get back there more.
havent been to the track yet, but i already know im going to like that.
as long as im on my bike im happy.

I can't figure out posers. Motorcycle riding ACTUALLY riding is just soo much fun..Thrilling, exciting everything that you like about . But instead of riding a chick you are riding a bike and it don't tell you are doing it wrong unless you crash.

But posing that is just dumb. If riding ain't your thing do something you like... to get chicks repect or whatever.

i went through all those phases in the options. the best was posing, shooting the breeze with the OG's at PP and cruising the night away. Track is fun but some people take it way too serious. its a hobby, not a way of life nor only means of having friends (alliances).

Spirited back road riding is defintely NOT worth the risk!
Once most people make the investment of going to the track, it takes the aggression out of their right hand. It helps people to see how dangerous riding, like that, on the street really is.
Having gotten the rush of the track allows you to slow down and enjoy the backroads for other reasons. Like the scenery, low traffic, twisties,etc.

I wouldn't go as far as saying it's dumb....to each their own....but I'm with you on just not getting it.

Ah you see why I bought a wing. Because on a wing you can still ride spirited and not die if you crash in the hill country because you are pushing a wing to its limits is not as dangerous as pushing a sportbike to its limits in the hill country.

Casual riding through suburbs.

Not a big fan of freeways and such.

Crusing backroads, looking at scenery is a hella lot more comfortable on something other than a sportbike.

What I have noticed, is that after going to the track, with my backroads buddies, we have toned it down a bit. Could be the track...could be the man. But either way, the pace has slowed lately. More actually riding "The Pace" but certaily above posted limits.

I guess I'm moody. I picked almost all of the above depending on how I may feel at any given moment.

I didn't choose commuting and posing, since riding in stop and go traffic is not my idea of fun, and posing is not riding.
