Those videos are a joke. I have no simpathy for any rider who dies of worser yet becomes a vegetable doing that stuff on the street. It has no place! They give bike and thier riders a bad name. If any of them hade been on a track thay would realize that they are not going "fast" and just a cars left turn from bieng dead and more to the pint hurting some one who is just minding thier own beeswax. If you listen to there shifts you would notice that they are not smooth riders. They just open and close thae throttle full on to full off. That is not skill.

ok im off my soap box.

pud, your is cool!

ouchhh..... now that was uncalled for.
I am an avid bike guy. I even race them. But doing stunts an the open street puts people who did not ake to be involved in the hospital.


I do like the superman!

Nothing personel Klaus, must be nice to get paid to post on ST all day.

TR - something is going horribly wrong with the engine of your truck...it is attached to two wheels instead of four!

And EC...I put in the winky smiley. But still...if I could ride a wheelie 90mph on the innerstate I would and I wouldn't feel the first bit bad about having done it, either.

I'd rather ride stunts (ok, not in traffic) and track days than climb El Cap any day of the week, thing is, I'm too light for the riding, so I stick with the climbing.

No worries, klaus. Those photos were awesome. I just saw the superbikes race Laguna Seca back in July. I'm an ex-motocross racer that never had much experience near the pavement. Those guys were incredible.
Ever ride Hwy. 9 or skyline in santa cruz mountains?

Ridden daily for last 9 years. The obvious close calls, but still ticking.

Eric:

90mph is childs play...what, were you racing a hybred? ;)

(kidding, glad you made it home safe...btw, don't 'upgrade' to the R1...)

I raced an audi TT in San Diego one night last year. Both my bike and his car were silver. His pipes sounded really good. (my bike is a piped/chipped/modified V2, so it sounded good, too) After the stop/go light dragging down town, we ended up on some innerstate that runs through town, nobody on the road. (2am ish) I guess we weren't really racing, more like playing. He knew the roads so he chose the route.

Why does this sound like one of those playboy write-ins? "I couldn't believe it was me, I'd never done anything like this before, but there she was..."

By the time we were done my threads were showing all the way around on the rear tire...had to stay in town an extra day to get a new one before firing up Hwy 1 to SF to cut over to the valley.

The days that just about kill you are the ones that make it all worth sticking around for. :)

Eric, get a MF answering machine that works, and lets ride.

-Kate.

PS EC - your message is an important one, though, I ride pretty safe around cars, and will continue to do so until I get that wheelie thing down. ;)

Street bikes are limited to pavement and pavement sucks. Dirt bikes go wherever you point them anywhere!

Ride Red! Hondas have wings.
