well first, you don't know that he doesn't help the people he meets. Second, the purpose of this act is to start a conversation, so that he can share his religious beliefs. He believes that introducing people to the guy who died for them on a cross is helping someone.

third, if you DON'T have religious beliefs, help someone!

Now let's get back on topic, shall we?

Sure you can. On the gas too hard and too early, lighten up the front end, and just like that you're sliding along next to yoru bike. I've done it twice, because I was thinking, "hey, I can't tuck the front by getting on the gas!"

I've done it bad, once, by keeping the revs really high on a ZX-7R (so in it's "power band" per se, since they were cammed to give power at the top end... like a turbo kicking in... vs. Honda CBR's with their smooth-through-all-revs power delivery) in a tight two-lane bend that had awesome newer & flat pavement (rare for Pittsburgh).

All the way over in that lean my front wheel was lifted up off of the ground... so despite me being leaned all the way over, nothing was actually guiding me through the corner anymore. I shot straight across the opposing lane (got lucky there was no car), and had it righted and slowing hard in the left-lane's shoulder.

I consider myself very lucky, and reserved using that much power in that far of a lean for the track from there on in. I can easily see how other bikes, and most other situations, would just lighten the pressure-induced traction too much on the front end.

Only tangent for me: I'm not religious, but I respect those who are, and more power to this guy if that's how he chooses to worship.

My only question is, I don't recall Christ getting to use a wheel on his cross, so doesn't that alone kinda defeat the message he's trying to send?

"I want to inspire faith in the flock... but not TOO much faith. So, ummm, why don't you bolt that wheelbarrow tire on there so I can have it a little easier."

Oh well. At least he didn't use a Voyager kit.

I thought Christ did the cross thing so his followers wouldn't have to.

But his noodliness doesn't require that of me. The whole thing seems absurd.

I think he did have some help, but that'll open a whole new can of worms.
