PostSubject: riding tip#1...calm down!   Sat Jan 17, 2009 10:43 am

we all get excited when we ride motorcycles , however some may get a little to excited when riding, moving violently on the bike,speeding,mabey not being as aware of your sorroundings as you should be, so having a clear vision of what your doing is very nessesary to have fun and being safe. riding bikes is a great way for stress relief for someone ...( at least me )...and i will come out and say that yeah mabey we all get a little carried away sometimes ..it happens to the best of us, but when it does... make sure your not totally endangering yourself and others.... meaning for the first tip on sportbiketalk we would love to bring you the first tip of SELF CONTROL. theres many days when mabey for an instance.... a civic hatch back pulls up to you revving his weak little engine like his car is extra ordinary , or he thinks hes a tough guy for what ever reason?.... and you are currently thinking wow, mabey i should show this fool some real power or what ever.....in this case without a doubt i would be up for a challenge! unless theres a supercharged v12 in the civic..but god knows thats not the case....... Smile you go for it......by the time you let the clutch off into second the civics engine broke down!.....you start laughing as anyone should, as you look back at the speedo you see your doing 130mph and theres not much road left. you slow down and rethink what just happened,you come to a complete stop now! you look back, when you were racing him there were four pot holes and oil spots from constrution the town had finished a week ago! you slowly think about what could have went wrong in those moments of excitement, but luckly nothing did mabey you won't be so lucky next time? when all facts arise, one conclusion is that things can, and will happen everyday when your riding, just be ready for them! Wink

PostSubject: riding tip#2 knee sliding and body position!   Sat Jan 17, 2009 11:27 am

ok one thing to know when riding a sport bike is body position and stance! ruling out the key number one factor, body position, correct body weight on a sport bike! it can save your life! here we go !!! most new riders often are over confident in there riding capabilities, so they will tend to copy things they see more exp. riders do like drop knee aka knee sliding. doing it corrrectly is much better than not.. because when most riders try to drop knee, they will try ....well pretty much just dropping there knee cheers this is were its wrong and body stance comes in to play! when droping your knee on a sport bike remember your center of gravity, if you ever try to just tap your knee on the ground DON'T! theres much more involved when doing this, your body should allways remain parallel to the bike! if not your twisted which is bad! try to lean your body about half way off the bike and remember to keep your head up were your turning! the more you lean your bike the easier it will be to get your knee down, however theres a point when its unsafe.....so lets not go there! focus on keeping your body half way over the bike, your lowered knee should be about 45 degrees to to the bike, make sure if your bike has mirrors to keep your body just past them! and before you know it your knee will be bloody before dinner! unless of coarse your wearing sliders Very Happy

Man I just say that dragging your knee on public roads is a stupid idea in general. For one thing, you don't need to be taking corners that fast unless it's on a race track, and another thing, public roads are too unsafe to be hanging off your bike on anyways. However, I tend to do it occasionally very lightly anyways. cheers The whole point of hanging off the bike is to try and keep the weight on the inside of the corner as much as possible, while keeping your bike as straight up and down as possible. This gives your bike more traction due to a bigger contact patch between the tires and the road.

Yeah I think all of us on this forum should film (onboard or external like my video) ourselves getting up to our top speed, and compare numbers and the feeling of going that fast and all that stuff! Obviously the people with 600's will have higher speeds but hey it will still be cool to see and talk about. I'm not endorsing you guys killing yourselves at top speed so keep it as safe as possible! cheers

ps hey at least snow looks cool! The rain is just depressing! Although it stopped today and all the wildflowers and trees are blooming so it's beautiful lol.

Hah yeah I know. I was informed that the flowers in the median of the freeway that I see blooming are mustard flowers, purple lilacs, and California golden poppies. I get distracted while driving cause I'm looking at them so much hah.
