I usually need to flip the rear to get 4 ish days out of the rear slick....
no, not lean angle, speed in the corners. I started this topic to help me get faster in the curves (on the street/interstate). i never terrorize the trafffic, especially bicyclists, and i always try to keep maximum distance from everyone. yes, road debris always a big worry, that why i like the Q4.And they don't last for s**t.
Really, I can't see why you're so hung up on attaining lean angle on the street. If that's your Holy Grail, at the very least sign up for a trackday where you can crank your bike over to your heart's content all day long, and not have to worry about traffic/bicyclists/road debris/cops etc.
did you heat that tire up with warmer, and were you at track ? and what tire pressure ?
I though so. I once thought like you when I started riding, 30-odd years ago.i'm more of a beginner, and i need that extra grip for safety
this video was made for the nay sayers, the nannies. for people who never ride motorcycle and get terrified just watching, and in their emotion they say "don't do that". the video sometimes is laughable; many of the riders are mocking others deliberately; the harley rider, with tall bars, got his knee down, one sportbike rider ride with shorts t-shirt and no helmet. harley rider at 2:12. it a big giant deliberate rebellion::corn for the part out thread...
Do a track day!
I think it's bad to glorify hooligans....if you think california bad, watch chicago, near me
and that's ok. i learn plenty here. what the message of the video ? anything is ok. some of them look like track rejects (were kicked off track). some got tinted windshield same color as bike (i don't like tinted shield). best riders i saw were wearing one piece race suit (for safety); some make fun of the race suit. dog on sportbike wearing goggles at 1:34. big big fat guy has stomach on tank all the time (no choice) 3:42I think it's bad to glorify hooligans....
Nobody here said you can't scrub out a rear on the street, or you can't drag knee on the street... we have said take it to the track you will learn more in a way safer environment.
Usually we try and promote conscientious riding, which is why we keep telling you to take it to the track.
as a rule, i never terrorize the traffic; always try to be polite to every vehicle. don't think i would ever attend a large gathering of bikes hogging the street and terrorizing drivers, and i think too, all of us sportbike riders have done something to irritate others (did you ever switch mufflers)Guess it proves there's a difference between age and maturity.
