I love this guy! Great sense of humor, doesn't take himself seriously.

Nice looking bike. And yes, I wish you had more protective gear as well, but at least you doubled up on the bells.

Not sure how, but I thank you for posting this. It led me to K. Code's Cornering Bible... some excellent refresher info I had forgotten about... time to hone up a bit.

I would have stopped to see if he was okay out of genuine concern... and when he walked his ass up that hill and back onto the road and I could see he was uninjured I would have knocked him back down the hill for scaring the piss out of me with his selfish riding assholitude. Catching a sport bike in the mouth at a combined speed of almost 100 mph would have most likely killed me and my passenger.

Stupid jerk... not only for passing in a no-passing zone or going off the road, or for staying on the throttle well after the pass and blowing a turn, but mainly for almost killing someone else. And learn how to lean the bike!

It took me 3 weeks to get from the beginning of this thread to here.
Just in time for the new season.
Howdy everyone!
