LPR

For the Tolls, the real bust is that are using LPR now, even making a change to your plates regurdless if you have current good standing account they'll know...and bill you anyway until you tell em you've changed your plates. Worse they've started setting cops downwind of the boths, you blow through one (center lane is BS) it will alert the roller and they'll be a waiting.

610 is the place to learn to drag knee!

I did the same run again last night, and I didn't see another bike on 610. I'm starting to feel those sweeping curves all along the south loop. You are right, you can learn to drag knee around there. Just concentrating on handling at a higher steady speed. I noticed too that my neck was getting a little stiff too. I guess from wind hitting my helmet and running at speed without having to break for any lights, etc. Is that why most people change out stock windscreen?

^^Give him a break dude. LOL.

That curve on 610 in the SW side is nice.

And riding the beltway on the East side in the ship channel area is scary.

That was a joke dude. Take it to the track. I'll teach you to drag a knee in the proper environment

That's interesting. I did my first 610 loop last night around 8pm going clockwise starting at 10/610 west intersection. It's kind of narrow in some parts but pretty good roads. Slowed down to 45 mph then up to mid 80s...

Are you OK there, big guy?

Dont worry...some day you'll graduate from the forest and step up to the 610 loop once you get some experience!

Some make fun, but they are those that stick to surface streets or backroads or decide they only going to ride on a track. I don't make fun of them, just do you and I'll do me. I'm not trying to impress anybody, just riding stock and having fun doing it. Speed comes with technique, so just trying to perfect my street riding right now.

Hey sv88,
How was your experience or any observations? Guess I wasn't the only one.

Doing the above on 610 is a good way to perfect your crash technique, test your safety gear (provided you wear any), and discover your mortality.

Slow down and learn properly or good luck, whichever suites.

What do you ride? I see the "half a busa" statement, but I don't understand it.

Based on his 1st post about wind and neck ache added to the 1/2 a busa comment I'm guessing a naked SV650.
