    There's the guy on that old Gixr from years ago who tows and drags his knee so it's not like a new thing but not something everyone at the local parking sees every day to good on ya, I guess :1drink

    Need to look harder. :deal

    Although to be fair the guy asking did manage to post so much BS before imploding it's understandable to overlook most of his gems...

    You didn't actually think I was going to read through 50 pages of nonsense when anyone with common sense and a brain knows the correct answer :D

    What?

    Here is some footage from Greg's helmet cam during a practice run in 2010.

    It is the Pikes Peak hill climb race.

    And when he "racers" the road is closed. Try riding over 6/10 staying in your lane.

    Sorry if I missed it, but what is the point you are making here about the Pikes Peak hill climb race?

    I'm not overly impressed. When a rookie can come in on a showroom demo bike and set the overall motorcycle record it doesn't speak very well of the level of competition. (2011, Carlin Dunne on a Ducati Multistrada 1200)

    Uh, riding at 6/10's and staying in the lane have nothing to do with each other. I can ride at 10/10's and stay in my lane, the consquence of failure at 10/10's and trying to stay in the lane is that I either enter the other lane or ride off the road...

    At 10/10's using the whole road the consequence of failure is leaving the road.

    You know I used to believe that ADV riders were of higher intelligence that your typical forum but maybe it's just this thread that has sub standard levels.

    Adds clueless idiots to ignore list......

    Im going to admit it. My buddy rides a ninja. I was riding my goldwing. We were riding on a road with very mild twisties. He looked like he was having SO much fun hanging off of his bike for NO reason, i decided to join him! Cant say it helped me handle the road any better. Maybe on a track or some serious twisties. But my wing would be throwing sparks long before i could scrape my jeans. The op pic is pretty fuckin sweet though.
