my guidelines are a little more stringent...

1. if you lack common sense and reasoning skills, stay away from sportbikes.

2. do not ride with people you dont know.

ive just ridden with too many idiots that have no buisness what so ever on motorcycles. rather ride by myself.

7. Go to the track, GO TO THE TRACK, GO TO THE TRACK, GO TO THE TRACK
and learrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrn .

+1000
You may think you know how to ride, but you really have no clue until you get your led around by someone who is truly fast and actually knows what one of these bikes was designed to do. Get to the track and learn something before you decide you're a bigshot with all that horsepower.


10. Learn to work on your bike. If you work on your bike then you will know exactly how far you can push your bike and still be safe.

Another good aspect of #10 is that if you're the one fixing it, you're less likely to do stupid things that will result in its destruction. Kinda like putting your first car together vs. parents buying something new. If your own busted knuckles are invested, you'll take care of it and protect it. Just my .02

Good post.

sorry - was posting to the 90%+ sport bike riders on this forum. Point made. I won't be taking the Low Rider to the track either... although it does run low 12s at the drag strip.

It depend on how you ride your cruiser. On some cruisers you can replace belt with a chain kit. But again if your just cruising nicely there is no need for this mod. But if your driving hard I wouldn't keep the belt. I have had a HD Dyna Wide glide and I HAVE SNAPED A BELT. But I didn't know anything back then or i would have replaced it when it needed it.

Just a thought, if you a take your cruiser to the track. Your in the wrong hobby unless of course its the drag strip track. Im not hatin but cruiser at the track doing twistys mmmmm. You might want to persue a career as a motorcycle Cop. Probably in japan.

Good post.
I disagree with this one, I work on my bike and sometimes I have shipping parts as I call them left over when I put it back together, but since I have already busted my knuckles all up taking it apart then putting it back together, ive gotten good at convincing myself the extra pieces were not that important and trash them instead of tearing it apart again, which is something I would never do to another persons bike just mine.

Guess I have to preface my post with common sense yet again. You have to be at least 3% smarter than the equipment you're trying to operate.

I myself didn't even know this, I figured that they wouldn't do that / couldn't do that.

So if your friends are being idiots (wheelies, etc) & run, and the cop pulls a u-turn and pulls you over (because you didn't take off, so obviously hes going to stop the easy guy who isn't running), while you were doing nothing, its likely you'll still go to jail?

What's the point then, might as well not even stop if police officers have this sort of attitude. Such BS.
