    Had to lay her down? :dunno

    I'm faster on a smaller bike with knobbies on the street than a bigger street bike with street tires.

    Hope this helps. :thumb

    Good thing he has lever guards on his bars. That could result in a broken lever.

    I ain't never ridden no streetbike. Seriously, I haven't. Not even once.

    Death Wings and godawful IRC GP110's are the closest I have ever come to riding on street tires.

    He's at least looking through the turn........probably thinking "if only I'd run Mosko's instead of these hard panniers....I wouldn't also end up with a broken leg".

    At least it’s not one of those gay-ass DCTs.

    To finish what...23rd?...out of 150 or so that started out earlier in the day is nothing to sneeze at.

    And Chad Reed is like a 18th place guy now. I know he's old but he's still good.

    Oh its stupid how fast they are. I only made the "workout more" joke cause in some video with 722, he noted something about trying this or that to make the mains, and figured if he dedicated more of his life to exercise\moto and less on his mediocre rap career......he'd be in the mains more often. :lol3

    Even the guy idling through the whoops on his way to a 20th place finish in the LCQ has a pro license. :lol3

    I can appreciate the commitment...

    My epic childhood bicycle mishap involved a somewhat proper bike for the job, but a woeful ramp made out of a stack of cinder blocks and a piece of plywood. I was looking to improve the current ramp distance record, which was mine :nod, so I came in hot. Plywood gave, bricks didn't. Don't remember anything from the immediate aftermath. Was knocked out briefly. Ended up getting staples in my head to close a gash caused by a pedal. Must have been quite the tumble....

    Proving buddies are the same whether 10, or 50, my distance was properly marked with something that broke off the bike. Good times... :thumbup

    And even when I felt like I was moving out OK last night.....there was another guy who'd pass me......and he'd look like he were standing still next to another regional top guy....who looks even slower compared to a national top guy. :cry :lol3

    I'm sure it's a good thing that Gopros and smart phones wernt invented yet back in those daze. But on the other hand just think of the epic memory's we could had with actual documentation besides what we can remember.:photog
