Take it easy on the street.

Okay seen enough people crashin lately and want everyone to get home safe.Its summer soon you don,t need to race every where on the street,pic slow parts of the day with less traffic. And less used roads. Have a fun summer and stay out of the Hospital.And yes your bike will do 180+ don,t do it in traffic.Also remember those dam cars and trucks leak oil.

word. hopefully the gas prices will keep a little less trafic on the roads. but there's no need to race on the street, just tack it up once and demote all other 1000's

I feel the same way, especially now that I'll have a lot of money invested in this bike in exhaust and other parts...like hell if I'm crashing...

Ya'll just keep at least one wheel on the ground now ya'hear?

Yeah i just watched another video of a guy riding above his skill level and head on into a truck. At least he died quick. Poor guy I like to have fun to but the older i get the less i want to wreck, when you are young you think you are invincible but we are all just flesh and bone.

I'm going to list some of main causes of crashes and you guys can chime in with your own. Taking a corner at to high rate of speed and failing to get the bike leaned over enough.Not holding you,r line.

I just posted on two threads about wrecks. The poor guy that lost his legs is just a few miles from where I live, that brings home the fact that these race bikes of ours really aren't made for the street. Everyone be safe out there because nobody can see us.

. I'm not losing my bike. I love my green machine! Secondly, if I get a ticket I lose my CDL bus license for 6 months. I have to drive my athletes around.
