Making mistakes like that is an indication that your skills kind of suck. I'm sure some might find that offensive, sorry, but the reason so many have pointed it out is that if you don't improve those skills, a crash is probably imminent.

You can practice these things in a parking lot! Even the MSF Military Sport Bike class... is done in a parking lot. Lee Parks Total Control classes... done in a parking lot.

Find out what to practice, and how, gradually develop your skills... then your odds of being a negative highlight on Killboys site will dramatically decrease. Cheers
(Official Greeting)

Welcome and thanks! But I would hope with the centuries if not millenia's of experience on this site, crossing the yellow in corners and generally sucking to control your bike will not be tolerated.

Beer, Bacon, Boobies.....For Life!

Don't need ABS when you learn how to use your brakes. (which this guy didn't bother to do)

As you noted, Brakes were not the issue. He just needed to look where he wanted to go and he would have went there.

Not selling anything, only pointing out that those advanced classes (did u miss the msf one?) are done in a parking lot. Trying to encourage those (who may need it) that they too can learn a lot in an empty parking lot.

I read the 1st 10 pages of this thread and saw many good points made by others to the rider to get further training. I'm simply adding to them.

Sounds like you have a propensity for misunderstandings and spouting crap...

Right back at ya bro

Dude! Your first post was money, your second sucks balls.

Since you haven't been here long, let me break it down for ya, out of every 100 posts, 5 will be valuable information and 95 will be spouting crap. And I understood you perfectly. I agree with you 100% that there are more riders on the road than we can count that would benefit from further training. I was simply calling you Captain F'n Obvious without calling you Captain F'n Obvious.

Lighten up Nancy, you will enjoy this place a lot more if you do.

She should be wearing a brightly-colored safety vest! All that black garb is just asking to be not seen and run over by someone driving on the wrong side of the double yellow...

Far be it from me to interrupt a good old fashioned squabble, but looks like the SV might have been down before. The tank is primered.

re read the beginning of the posts. what's obvious is that are quite a few people who think "oh it's okay to make a mistake" "they just crossed over a little" "give em a break" etc etc

I simply joined in with others to say no it's not okay, and if yer making a mistake like that you need extra training.

as fucking obvious as u think it is, you might take note of the fact there are many that have commented that don't think it's so fucking obvious, and they're the ones that really could benefit from talking about and being aware of additional training.

And if there's anyone that needs to lighten up, it's you Sally, or is that Susan? Or maybe you just prefer to be slapped on the ass and called Judy?
