Is this gonna turn into a "I'm a better rider" "I've got a better bike than you" debate now?

Maybe I don't ride in the dirt? Maybe I can learn something from you...

Hey, "it could" happen.

No thanks. Though not as close as I would want it, but my track's in Germany.

Apparently, so is your grey matter.

See? You make ASSumptions and they're wrong!

He should not have been so tight to the center so early on while entering a blind corner. If he had not been riding like a Douche he would have easily avoided the Asshat on the BMW.

You're riding an NX, it really doesn't matter WHAT tires I have on. Not that the NX is a shitty bike, it's not. But just like a man's gotta know his limitations, he's gotta know his bikes also.
BUT, if you genuinely want to learn how to be a better rider, DO ride in the dirt. Rossi does it. As does just about every other road-racer.

If you don't think you can learn you can't. Try this on for size. Everyone should do it once.

On a road that tight I would leave my knobbies on my thumper for a run with you.

A track?

I would stay away from Amish country, you will get killed riding the way you want.

Didn't say any of the things you took from my comments. I maintain that crossing the double yellow is a bad habit on the road, that is all. I also see some others agree with me.
*shrug*
Lighten up Francis.
