That's so 205 even the 205s are 205ed! Didn't you carefully read the past 837 pages?

This puts them equal to or better than most cars. I had always read that cars with their much larger tire contact patches could pull more lateral Gs than bikes. Most cars pull between .8 and 1 G on the skidpad with a few going higher. Maybe Motorcycle tires are stickier than car tires?
Note that most cars will pull more lateral G's in dynamic driving than they ever will on a skidpad measure where they go around in a circle accelerating until they cannot maintian a fixed radius.

Oh and to keep the nerd war in with posting pictures.

THIS is trust. (not me and not the dragon but still on a BIG ass sprint)

Let us know about Oct. AllSports is Oct 28, btw. Weekends are pretty busy but we could always hook up on a weeknight! And yeah, he knows a thing or two about beer.
Those of us who have seem him ride know that he can rip on that 250 sumo though, right up until he runs out of gas :)

We were down in the area over the weekend. We didn't ride the Dragon (been there, done that) this trip, but we did ride 129 into the Gap to grab 28 and make the Moonshiner 28 run.

As we were on 129 heading towards the Gap, we came up on a dude on a sport bike that was, without a doubt, one of the shittiest riders I have ever seen. Granted I'm not the smoothest guy out there, nor the fastest, but holy crapola was this guy a shitty rider - body position was wrong in every way for it to be wrong, dunno where the hell he was looking, etc...

We were all 2-up on FJRs. No way we shoulda caught him.

Anyway, the wife and I were talking about this thread - I was sure you guys woulda pounced all over him.

This was on Saturday, 9/22, in the afternoon. Dude was on some kind of black / flat-black sports-ish bike, wearing a black jacket, and shoes with white socks.

I believe someone complained about him ripping it on the 150. :lol:

Maybe next season we'll be able to get down to VIR...
