thats actually the detail i left out. i agree. i think not only it takes certain skill. but also knowing your own TRUE limits. not what u think they are or how good u think u are. being more humble then big headed.
If you play with the dogs, ur gonna wind up with fleas.....

22. Never ride faster than your reactions. The higher the speed, the lower possible reaction time.

23. Before I ride, I think about everything I have in my life. My family, my gf, graduating college soon, and it reminds me that THIS RIDE, is not the last thing I want to do in life.

Not going to add to the list, but a few personal observations

The ones that ride consistantly quick on the backroads are those that:

do track days to learn their limits and what the bike can do
maintain their bike in excellent condition, including setting up the suspension
ride A LOT and are very comfortable on the bike
know how to brake in turns as well as the straights

One thing I have noted over the years is the ones that go really fast are usually running the same roads and have learned them pretty well, but tend to pull it back a notch or three on unfamiliar roads.

The ones that learned to "read" the roads, like Cali said, are few among the many.

I tend to ride slow on the straights and speed up in the turns. Anyone can twist the wrist in a staight line.
A wise man once told me: "No matter how fine she is, just remember. Somewhere, someone is tired of her !"
