To all the cool people who can appreciate, this video was for your enjoyment. As for the rest…haha wow ok…I expected some hate but not this much. No prob. To all the haters, how do you ride on the street? Do you always stay with traffic? Do you always save your fast riding for the track? Doubt it, probably a bunch of hypocrites on here. Forum people love to talk tough, hiding behind a computer…always amuses me.
Now ok...serious question, if you own a sportbike but never push it (within reason), why do you own one? Is it just to look cool?? Nobody will admit that of course but I’m curious what percentage of riders are posers like that, and what percentage, like me, are true racers at heart. Posers/haters, get a cruiser, sounds more your style. But for those who cruise on the street but also take it to the track, that’s cool…but how often do you go? I can’t imagine going a few times a year and the rest of the year just cruising on the streets. These bikes are meant to be raced, not cruised around in. And I agree a truly controlled setting is the track, but I still think you can minimize your risk to an acceptable level on the streets while still riding hard. All personal judgment though.
To those who "wasted 3 min 41 seconds"...why did you finish the video? lol...gotta love jealous haters
If that was you "Pushing a Sportbike", pick a new hobby. It will only end
ing bad for you..in the end
. (trying a little reverse psychology on you with the word, "end
Wanna push? Learn to ride, then take it to the track. As it is, in no way was that pushing a sportbike, nor was it driving defensively. Not only are you putting yourself in danger by acting like a squid, you are unwittingly giving everyone who rides a sportbike a bad wrap.
I'm sure you really tore up the middle of your tyres yo! Typically, someone who "pushes" a sportbike has nothing but tread life in the center of the tyre carcass, while nothing left on the sides.
Weaving in an out of traffic is not "pushing" a sportbike. It is behaving like a douche rather. Obviously you are concerned about perception, as why else would you post a video of yourself than to show off or look for feedback? So be that as it may, learn to ride, learn the fundamentals of riding, learn to lean your bike over, though most importantly...learn about the value of riding gear.
Don't be a douche and don't try to defend your actions. Take the criticism constructively as none of us want to see a fellow motorcyclist injured/dead or bike wrecked in the crash, boom, bang section.
Clearly..you have a lot to learn when it comes to "Pushing" a sportbike. Now that you have a 1k because clearly, it was the lack of POWAHHH that kept you from really "Pushing" a sportbike, it is going to be more difficult as you haven't learned/understand the basics, yet you have more torque & hp now.
There is a reason why top level riders come up through the ranks before making it to top level GP racing. This lack of understanding may be your downfall if you are too stubborn to learn.
