Kilboy's Facebook page(s) is loaded with this week's mayhem:
I was there on Friday afternoon, the 21st. I guess no fail pics of me! But here is something tho......I am being followed by Mr, Moto,who is not right up my ass but not way behind either, He is the only one behind me,so I am keeping my eye on him. Again, he is not right on my azz so I am not sure if he wants to pass or not. I am aware I am not going warp speed so I will indicate that he can go ahead.
I slow down and move to the far right glancing in my mirrors to see if he is going to make a move. Nothing.....nothing....then it,s switchback time and I move over slightly in my lane,more to center but away from the inside and away from the yellow.
THEN Mr.Moto makes his move and scares the pants off of me by passing me in the corner, when I wasn't expecting it and when I had decided that looking forward was a better idea at that time.
I was pissed. I guess I forgot to do ALL 3, move over,slow down AND wave him by......geeezzz.
Mr. moto is in this thread.......
i'm gonna go out on a limb. this guy ^^^, and his species of rider, i don't think we're gonna be bothered by them for much longer. i think they're gonna kill themselves off. the whole "street tires on a dirt bike and racing leathers" (and the inconsiderate, unsafe, asshole riding style they have) needs to stay on the track. they're right up there with the idiot pirate HD crowd and sportbike squid crowd. when i went to the dragon a few years ago, it was like every other bend had one of these supermoto asshats in the ditch. next time, keep your dirtbike in the dirt, with dirt tires on it. asses.
You really don't know what you're talking about, do you. There are riders who ride past their skill level on every kind of bike out there... A supermoto is not a "dirt bike" anymore than a Harley Sporster is a drag bike, and it's sure as heck a lot more forgiving of mistakes than a 800lb sled or a crotch rocket.
Those guys are up there to have fun, granted they could pick a better, less crowded road to do it on, but they're probably trying to get on Killboy's highlights, just like you would if you weren't from a flat state...
(Husky 630 rider here, but I don't cut people off and dive across lines. I do however pass rolling road blocks when it is safe, and, OMG!, put a leg out every once in a while in the tight stuff...)
Also, what percentage of the wrecks and fails in this threads are motards?
The flatlander hath spoken.
Any idea what state these guys are from? I am impressed they have them wearing FF helmets.
Awwww, did somebody get their paint peeled by a dirt bike? That dude is probably just stuck behind a train of bikes with FL plates that can't work a turn or a mirror. I promise not to bring my tard to FL, if you promise not to bring your whatever to the mountains of NC/TN.
Modular, so they can flip them up to give you your proper tongue lashing...
NCHP. For the record, they are perfectly colored to blend in with asphalt and gravel. Sitting in a gravel pulloff, they just disappear.
Looks like an emitter below the lower left side LED for moving radar. So you might not be as fine as you think.
No fail here. Nice chop and a happy rider. WIN!!
i think i do.
you didn't read my whole rant, did you? "they're right up there with the idiot pirate HD crowd and sportbike squid crowd."
risking the safety of others for internet fame? how shallow.
you must be one of the few that has the safety of others in mind when he rides.
i could care less if someone passes me. but i get hacked off when some dick in a car or on any bike cuts me off, weaves in and out, you know the drill. i don't care what you ride or drive, don't be a dickhead. plain and simple. and if he is stuck behind a train of some of the shit riders from my state, i bet he's taking his time looking for his next spot to cut other riders up and then wreck a few turns later.
edit: yes, please keep your tard out of FL. we've got plenty of all kinds of tard here already that i have to look out for
I think you're looking at the PA/Siren.
So that's what the dirty looks were for the last time I was in TN?
This thread has really sucked lately. How about we cut all the BS and get back to photos?
Rukka does lady specific gear. Not tried personally for the obvious reason but I hear good reports about the fit.
Dude! If you are this pissed about motards blowing by you than you are REALLY gonna blow out your main o-ring when a dirtbike, on dirt tires, with side cases blows by you in a corner ...........Stick to cruising A1A or whateva it is you do in Flo-Ri-Da!
Got some friends that will ride Croom with you that will give you a good workout.
blow by me all you like. just do it in the next lane over and don't make me have to see you in the ditch on the next bend like so many others. between biketoberfest and bike week we get this influx of intolerable asses from the frozen north making it hell for the few capable FL native riders that just want to enjoy the ride without having to dodge out of state corpses.
you really think i'm gonna tell you what i do down here? i ain't giving away my secrets
i'm not a dirt guy. you all go on ahead.
gimme gimme gimme!
