Looking through turns goes a long way!

I think HOP knows better than to blame the orgs for rider's mistakes. I think he is just throwing out there as a humor. Y'all are so uptight.

That was me going up the inside of the two riders... I went out without warmers that session and did one slow lap. That was the second lap and I passed both riders on the brakes into 4, the guy on the R1 just tried to follow.

I work for Ride Smart and don't take offense to Tony's comment. That dude (R1 guy) wasn't riding smart.

What's worse is the guy on the SV650 that got plowed into, it's not his bike! He was test riding it for the owner after they had talked about some setup changes. They did some adjustments and then that guy went out and BAM. Bike no worky the rest of the day.

Dude on the R1 is lucky he didn't cause serious injury to him...
