We weren't racing the street Sub. We are not stupid, this was a cruise on a twistie road through the country to get to a small little mountain town. John happened to make a mistake riding. He was trying to avoid the accident by going around him instead of slowing down.By taking it to the track instead of on the street. No offense meant but that's the truth of it all.
Sorry to hear of the mishap. Glad everyone else had a great time.
this person had less than 2 weeks of experience... im sure everyone has had 1 oh shit moment when they first started out. Like christian stated, it was a cruise at your own pace. When riding, anything can happen on the track or on the streetI'm not nor did I say anyone was "racing the street". But what was it that caused John #1 to have the incident?????????
You said that he ran wide and had to recover from that (which he was able to). To me, his running wide indicates that he was more then likely going above the posted speed limit for that turn and/or riding above his means on a road he didn't fully know or know at all. That is the type of riding that needs to be taken to the track. If a person is going to ride at any pace above street legal and hugging turns it needs to be taken to the track.
That is true. Anything can happen.this person had less than 2 weeks of experience... im sure everyone has had 1 oh shit moment when they first started out. Like christian stated, it was a cruise at your own pace. When riding, anything can happen on the track or on the street
Ok guys since riding a bike is dangerous don't ride it on the streets only ride a motorcycle on a track. If you just want to go get gas, trailer your bike down to the gas station to fill it up don't take the risk of riding it. :nono Better yet sell your bikes.My whole point was when a rider is riding their own ride and within their experience /limits the chances of incidents (aside from accidentally dropping your bike and cagers) are extremely slim. On the street there at hundreds more variables (if not more) then there are on the track. So in that riding at any pace that is not street legal is not wise for the experienced or novice.
That is very true. However, a few positive and sincere words of encouragement to be careful and ride within your limits can go a long way towards helping everyone decide to not do something that can cause them to crash.This kind of thing is hard to prevent from a planners stand point. it is in each rider that decides to go to try to keep themselves out of harms way.
