    He should not have been so tight to the center so early on while entering a blind corner. :deal 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.

    A track?

    I would stay away from Amish country, you will get killed riding the way you want. :lol3

    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.

    Epic. So now it's his fault the BMW rider run him off the road.

    Who's at fault, using your... Logic, here then?


    Same fucking thing, different vehicle LOC. Oh wait... I'm sure he did something illegal before he turned his camera on:rolleyes

    For all the bitching and moaning about big rigs and squids riding over the line on the dragon, I'd ride that a bit more sedately. It seems like it's *expected* to find something in your lane there.

    If you crash in a corner because there's gravel at the apex, and you're going too fast to correct your line, is it the gravel's fault?

    I really did try to follow the last several pages of argument but it was soooooo difficult when only one side made any sense and could actually communicate in understandable English.

    Hmmm... we're 140+ pages into a thread about bad ju ju on the Dragon.
    That stretch of pavement is legendary for its' roadkill.
    There's even a shrine to the less fortunate, called the Tree of Shame.

    I'm thinking ... feeble as that may be... that if you scoot that stretch of road, you should pretty much expect the worst possible encounter around every blind corner.

    Failure to do so places you and others at serious risk.

    Clearly, I'm missing something.

    Actually, he needs to work on his late apexing, from what I can see.
