That should be a mandatory read before the upcoming riding season. I have been guilty of a few lapses in judgment and concentration and have paid the consequences. While the consequences were no doubt terrible, they could have been far worse and I might not have been here to talk about them. With all of the recent changes in my life I will be implementing the "pace" method of riding this season and saving the "balls to the walls" method for the track. My hopes are that the pace method will allow me to further hone my skills to the point that my new pace will soon be on par with my old balls to the wall method of years gone bye.

I'm all for something that will allow me to live to ride another day

Dang! You got shocks, pegs... lucky! You ever take it off any sweet jumps?

Hey By-Tor,
I totally agree with you, a lot of young riders get to caught up in the balls to walls type riding that a sportbike is capable. What is important is to find a group of guys who can put the ego aside and just have fun riding. That is a lot harder to find as bikes become more powerful and less respected. We should all employ using the pace to help build our riding abilities. Props to you, have a safe and happy season of riding.

I ride in a group of 2 or 3 maximum. No egos. Every man for himself when it comes to speed or pace. These are guys I trust very much. My brother is one. No pressure. I tend to push myself really hard though. It's an addiction. I will be making a consious effort to change this this season. No promises but I will give it a shot

Good find Truck. I should have read this about 8 months ago. I had a real close call. I almost lost it off a cliff. Talk about a shitty day.

Making a comeback...HOOAH

We all need to be reminded of why we ride. TO HAVE FUN, not to spend time in the hospital or even worse. Simply put ride safe and have fun, dont ride above your head

I better put knobbys on my 954, some of my roads are fucked, all the freezing & thawing & re-freezing of the roads has destroyed them, they are full of potholes, & loose dirt & gravel everywhere. Winter can be a real bitch in MI sometimes. Every spring we have to take it easy to get the roads sorted out.

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.
