Dangit! I take a weekend vacation with the Misses and come back to find that LittleNative got a new handle and popped up on the Killboy thread!

You ff's could have at least called me to tell me what I was missing.

This thread is on track.

We only allow for the occasional Killboy pic to serve as a sacrifice to the ADV Gods.

you make an analogy to Rossi? seriously? let's examine a major difference you may have overlooked:

Rossi is riding at the very edge of human ability, and bike ability. He rides that edge better than any other rider alive. Sometimes he goes over it... what happens when he does?

he goes into a hay bale and generally gets up and walks away (due respects to Wayne Rainey, who should have walked away).

what happens to a street rider when he messes up?

well, there aren't any hay bales, there's traffic coming in the other direction, and possibly trees / cliffs on the other side.

Here's another way to make the distinction, one rider is paid to push the limits, the other rider is incompetent and endangering his life. See the diff?

Look, obviously this is a hornets nest (thanks for the "stfu", it's caustic and not necessary, I'm a big boy), but my comments have nothing to do with type of bike, be it ds, sportbike, cruiser, cafe racer, etc etc.

My only point was that if yer not even leaned over and yer still in the wrong lane of traffic, on public streets... you got a problem.

when was the last time you drove your car in the wrong lane of traffic? get the point? Then don't do it with your bike either! Doing it on yer bike could get you dead!

And jeeesus as far as Lee Parks, MSF or any of the others are concerned; I personally would say you could buy a 10 buck book and practice in a parking lot and get a pretty good idea of what you need to know. You'd have to work at it, a good instructor could make it easier. A bad instructor could make it harder too!

My point, there's no excuse for being in the wrong lane of traffic, especially on your bike... none... nada... zip... zilch!

yer gonna get yerself killed doin that shit...

WTF, these guys and girls most likely haven't been drinking. Try the Basement for drunken rants. You'll probably fit in there - posters there can offend your delicate sensibilites much better than in this thread

And I don't think you know what a turd is. In Australia, it's impossible to wank a turd
