had the feeling this week also, my lil bro ( 06 CBR100rr ) was infront of me ( i let him stay there so that I can critique him in turns ) so I am following to help coach him with high speed turns. Well he goes into the turn HOT i am talking about WAYYYY HOT, and I know I can make it with some serious lean so since i am HOT too ( because i was following ) I setup for an outside pass as he begins to slow. WELL as he slows he drifts into the outside lane ( where i am abou to pass ) All i think is YOU G**DAMN DIRTY LITTEL MOT**FU**ER I CANT BELIEVE YOUR DRIFTING. Well as the last resort I slide the back out and start feathering the front brake, well the turn is on a bank and as i see i cant drift the rear over like i want to i let go of the brakes and off the roadway i go ( into the grassy unknown abyss ) i slow the bike and return to the road with him giving me the OK sign ( WHAT THA FU** YOU NEARLY KILLED ME ) <<thats what i was thinking, but i gave him the YES head shake and continued the ride for about 1hr. we then return to the house where i give him a small ass chew, then explain how to manipulate the brakes and lean angle at the same time to slow while turning. so all and all it was a learing experience for him ( and i guess me to not follow so close even though we have about 1.5 car lenghts b/t us) but i an now thinking about investing in chatterbox so that if it even happens again i can let him know i will make the pass so maybe he wont drift . . .
