sorry folks, you cant handle these vids. ..
Speedy, bought my girl, just needs the kudus man.Not trying to be a dick, just trying to make you think. When you are lying in a ditch on the side of the road in agony afraid to look at your legs because of what you might see it really makes you think. I got my first bike in 92 and have been riding ever since, There was at least one 5 year period in there where I rode daily and now I ride at least three to four days a week, all year (Except for snow days, there are limits).
Currently I have a RC51, VFR750 and just sold a CBR600, I've had a lot of bikes and put a lot of miles on them. I'm a IBA member of the lowest standing but I'm in there. I've crashed a lot of times too.
I rode like an idiot also and I've been very lucky, a lot of people I know haven't. You ride like that it's just a matter of time until you go down. It's going to happen. I just hate to see it.
And really, what were you thinking, posting that here of all places? I mean really, what did you expect?
Well, I've only ridden my mom's rebel 250 in suburban streets, but I feel obligated to comment on certain aspects of this...shall we call...debate.the sad thing is that wiredpingun is 100% right; what was i thinking posting these videos here?!??! of course you spyderchatters would be little bitches about it. hell, awhile back i posted a video of me driving my MR2, SLOWER than these videos of me on my bike - and i STILL got shit from a bunch of you pompous my-shit-smells-sweet-and-i'm-better-than-you-because-i-like-to-think-i-drive-a-nice-sports-car-but-its-really-just-a-toyota people on this board. some of you are cool, but the more time i spend here, the more obvious it becomes that the MAJORITY of you folks are pretty much just ... well, i guess i already covered that :lol:
i'm still waiting for Nelix's ride videos....and for him to answer my questions. i'm sure he cant live up to his talk, so thats why he avoided them hahaha
maybe he's excited about being engaged to a beautiful woman, so what. It was one line in the post and maybe 3 seconds in the video, completely understandable to me (maybe I have those insecurities too ) And although I somewhat agree with what you said, I would have done it in a much nicer way, rather than making it seem like an unwarranted attack on the guy's character.As is your need to tell us you have a hot gf.
i created a SPECIFIC thread about 3 or 4 months ago, asking if posting street racing type of stuff on SpyderChat was against board rules. no mods came in and told me "NO"This forum prohobits street racing stories/videos because the people on here want to maintain the image of being the smart, safe, motorists that have the self control to take their aggressive driving to the track.
I apologize for that statement of mine then. I thought I remembered threads saying they weren't allowed. And I'm not sitting here with a "Ban Corky" sign, just trying to help you see the other 2 guys' points with a more polite demeanor. I know you don't street race, but remember there's a considerable area between 100% flat-out and safe, street riding.i created a SPECIFIC thread about 3 or 4 months ago, asking if posting street racing type of stuff on SpyderChat was against board rules. no mods came in and told me "NO"
link to thread:
with DUE DILIGENCE i have done my best to follow forum rules. if these videos are against forum rules, i will remove them. so far my research tells me that they are not.
.... not only that, but i really wouldnt consider the vids in this thread to be street racing, so they wouldnt qualify as board banable material in the first place. ... if you wanna see a sportbike going RACING TRACK speeds on the street, you are gonna have to ask someone other than me to bring it to ya, cuz i simply am not willing to go thaaat fast on the street
The arrogance starts right here. Why would it matter to anyone, anywhere, that your primary interest is not an MR2?
