you should've asked, you're welcome to ride it sometime. i'm actually pretty seriously considering selling it to get a sport bike anyway. (assuming of course that it was my bike you were referring to)

i guess going "186" would get my adrenaline going too... pizza plate sprokets ftw

i think he started to and when he went to correct the bike got traction and threw him over the top.

we were on a left hand turn that he took more to the inside than any of the rest of us and hit some gravel from a driveway that was right before the start of the curve. i didn't see him go down but i think he must've lost traction setting up for the curve rather than actually turning.
