i actually ride pretty slow normally. i have a patch on my jacket of a turtle cruising on a bike. haha, a friend gave it to me i ride to ride. but i agree many riders do only know how to twist the throttle and that's it. I do think i know much more than that, but i don't tear it up in the twisties this is an endless discussion. when it comes down to it, there are many good riders, many not so good ones, and there are also some that shouldn't even be on a bike..

so it was a nice day last year.. i roll to the mall on my bike... running a few errands... there is only one spot at the mall to park bikes and it's only like 8 bikes deep... so anyways.. i get there... park my bike.. go inside.. do my thing... come out... and i'm walking towards my bike.. putting on my ear buds... when you have the "typical" boys in the hood motorcycle gang just hanging out in shorts, tshirt and timbs... with their helmets sitting on top of their heads to show off that awesome expensive HJC lid they got.... the boys are all around the bikes... two of which is sitting rihght in front of mine... they see me get on my bike... yet didn't move... ok... so i said excuse me can you move ... ok.. no response... say it again... again no response.. finally i start my bike and just hit the rev limiter... gee that got your attention now didn't it... i pointed for them to move... finally did... noticed they were all laughin' and prob making fun of me (i had my buds on couldn't hear anthing).. they all started to put on their gear... ok watever...

rolled out slow... got to the first light outta the mall.. about to get back on the onramp.. to go home... it's a long right hand 2 laned sweeper.... not very tight at all... unless you hit it fast....

i'm sitting at the light jamming to music... and they all roll up and surround me.. all revving their shyt.... two of them line up next to me.. they were all gixxers... all 750 or 1000s.... i just shake my head.... ok light turns yellow on the other side... i said ok let's see what you guys got... revved it to 7-8K... light turns green... boom i shoot off.... (mind you i am NOT a drag racer by ANY means).... one dude stalled it... and almost twelve oclocked his bike off the line... ROFL... the other guy... too slow... i turn the turn at a easy 80 mph one handed... looking back at them... i merged on the high way... sat back and waited.. and they do a flyby.... ROFL
I would think most people like this wind up being scrapped off the road with a spatula within their first or second season. I wouldnt consider them a real rider, just a fool.

the guys who tried to race you, i know exactly the kind of guys youre talking about because i see them around here all the time during the summer. They buy a brand new 600 or higher bike, probably dont even have a motorcycle license, then go flying past me at a buck twenty with shorts and no jacket on, and they all wind up crashing soon after.

um......let them take off first?

sounds a heck of a lot safer than having them fly-by you at 120 and risk running into you.........

I've seen enough of your posts on bikes to figure you're a responsible rider, so I'm not questioning your overall judgment.....just offering a different perspective

well considering i couldn't because they had me surrounded on all sides except for in front of me.... i could've just taken off and dropped them off at school all together... but i thought it would be funny to see how far behind they are... and how embarrsing it was that i went through one handed faster than them.... then the fly-by was the BEST

i guess it was one of those immature moments... i apologize

it's not the smartest thing to do... but if you think you have enough self control... then go for it.... also.. keep in mind... how would you like it if you bought a spanky new bike.. and dropped it the first week... or.. you buy an older bike... drop it however many times you want and not care... then buy a "nice" bike when you know how to ride and less likly to drop it
