Yesterday went out to Skaggs, fawking awesome ride
(minus the 80mph knee down into the back of a truck of an idiot
doing a 3 point turn over the double yellow 2 lane back road
on a blind corner NEAR MISS SAVE, THANK YOU PILOT POWERS) no video tho.
But went to the local twisties again today to see the diffrence from
using a clear windscreen over my black Puig DB.
Basically the same, but the black puig looks way better on the bike,
so it's not even worth swapping for onboards.
Chasing a friend on his 1000RR, I think it's time for him to grab a suit.
He's going a bit too fast with all that leaning and is gonna tear off his jeans, lol.

Normally he rides with the pegs inbetween the heel and ball of his feet.
But he pulls up to the ball for whichever foot is on the inside of the turn so that he doesn't ruin his shoes, lol. He's one of the more sane/relaxed/safe riders in the group.

Question #1: Why the hell is your friend putting out a knee with jeans on?

Question #2: Did you get one of the limited edition RR's that come with only one gear?

He's goin way too fast? It looked like you guys were going super slow to me. I'm not trying to bag, but that is the slowest twisty speed in a video I have seen to date.

the infinite buzzing sitting at 10-15k, lol.
i don't feel like going to 3rd for 2-3 seconds
and then back into 2nd for the turns, :p.
and the end of 2nd gear is like 95 or so already...
I'd rather get clocked UNDER 100MPH in a 20-35 zone, lol.
He wanted some footage of himself, so I ran behind him the whole time...
His pace is pretty good but when I asked him to chase me with my cam on his bike he says he wouldn't be able to keep up...:(
I don't think he realizes that he's knee is out that far tho,
just waiting for the day when it scuffs his jeans/kneeguards.
but still...chasing someone is more fun than leading. :D

Tell him to start using the balls of his feet, he'll get even more ground clearance and better footing.
