All those detractors, tell me again how ABS sucks. Granted he probably would have target fixated and hit the truck broadside, but that is better then getting run over IMHO.

Hey All, new to the forum, looks like a great place.

Just wanted to say to those of you that think "these minor mistakes" of going over the center and such are "okay". I've read "hey we all make mistakes" way too many times.

Making mistakes like that is an indication that your skills kind of suck. I'm sure some might find that offensive, sorry, but the reason so many have pointed it out is that if you don't improve those skills, a crash is probably imminent.

You can practice these things in a parking lot! Even the MSF Military Sport Bike class... is done in a parking lot. Lee Parks Total Control classes... done in a parking lot.

Find out what to practice, and how, gradually develop your skills... then your odds of being a negative highlight on Killboys site will dramatically decrease. Cheers

AzItLies screwed with this post 03-10-2013 at 07:51 AM Reason: I have "blocks" of text...
