......OH brother!!!!!

I didn't say go out and ride like a bloomin IDIOT.

Go find an empty backroad, take it slow and easy, swerve back and forth, notice what your steering is doing while you're swerving. Go into and out of some corners aggressively. change lines while IN a corner, turn tighter, come out early...PAY attention to what's going on.

THere....GO FOR A RIDE, everyone should be able to notice what's going on and WHY!!!!

When you crash... When you get injured or killed it was all because motorcycle riding just wasn't for you.

It had NOTHING to do with the fact that you ignored the Push Left Go Left/Push Righ Go Right/ Look through the turn, LOOK THROUGH THE TURN, LOOK THROUGH THE TURN!

You trusted in cousin Jimmy's method of "All that counter steering stuff is just a bunch of HOGWASH! Just Lean into the turn"

Then you target fixated on the guard-rail or ditch or rock or truck.... Your aim was true.

Ride Safe Ride Well Ride Often

See you on the side of the road.
