    40mph actually. Not that hard at all, if you are an idiot who loves rear useless brake.

    I'll see if I can get the pictures.

    In this guy's defense if he really was going that fast he probably only had a couple seconds to react once he saw the closure signs when he got out of the turn. Still, the perfectly straight skid mark was weird, maybe a testament to his speed.

    Perfectly straight skid mark = [as said above] rear brake lockup and target fixation i.e. fail.

    What are you talking about? Where is this?

    I love the straight, dark, just like stepping on a car brake pedal, rear tire lock up. This is not only a rookie bush league move, but also very prevalent in foot forward position cruiser bikes. (notice I didn't stereotype and say Harley riders)

    Happened on one of our job sites, road is closed for bridge replacement. 10ft left and he would have went into a 335 excavator.

    Was on a sport bike FWIW.. I think he was on something or drunk, most inexperienced riders aren't going that fast on state roads in the woods. Or maybe that was his first mistake.

    I used to ride ice when I was living in Minnesota.
    You'll be surprise how much traction you'll get with those studded tires.
    Much better grip than dirt unless you get trapped in groove.

    Finally found time (it took 4.5 hours) to put all of the stickers onto my sons bike. I think it came out pretty damn good!



    The boy is pleased:

    Going where the wind don't blow so strange
    Maybe on some high cold mountain range

    Is that a TTR or PW?

    I think you just added an extra horsepower with all those stickers!

    TTR-50.

    Stickers were spec'd for +1 hp on DecalWorks website but that was for the "stock" color combos. The boy claims that the "toxic yellow-green" highlights that he picked make it feel more like +2 hp as measured by his seat of the pants dyno.

    Nutmeg? Why aren't you riding? Sorry if you posted something on page 18 and I missed it...

    As to the guy with the big skid, like VT free heel said - target fixation/rear wheel lockup.

    I live by New York City and we don't have a garage.
    So we (me and my boyfriend) keep our bikes in Pennsylvania where his family are.
    We normally go back to visit every 2-3 weeks and (ideally) get to ride around the Poconos.
    But this summer golf summed me and kept me occupied.
    Maybe I'll get to ride few times before the season ends.

    What do you ride, gray?

    Oh shit. sorry about that. It looked fine in my cell phone.. fuck. Anyway, anyone who has ridden like you have (knee dragging madness), can and probably does ride like a stud compared to me. I will say though (knocking on wood furiously) that I've ridden for over 40 years without a hospital visit probably cause I'm so lame I'm not sure I have the guts to lean it over so far anymore... I guess there's training camps though maybe for old pansies???

    Ya freak. So there is places that old hacks like me can go and suit up and drag a knee with a week of training?

    You can try a trackday.
    You pay for a day to ride at the track with general instruction.
    Full leather suits, gloves, boots and helmet are required.
    Any bikes are welcome and some people even take Harleys and Gold Wings.
    It's rare but there are trackday organizations lend leather suits.
    Otherwise, you have to provide it yourself.
    Even if you don't get to drag your knees, riding at the track is a great way to develop some new skills.
    You can push a little more in much safer environment.
    No need to worry about soccer mom on the phone or speeding ticket.

    Did a nice 250 mile ride today, about 50 being dirt. Green hills and a few wildflowers, but not peaked yet.

    Fun day
