Just curious about how everone tends to ride. I like to take it easy and get on the gas every once and a while just to make sure I'm still alive :crash

Ok, I'll admit it, I'm a poser.:cool:
I buy bricks buy the pallet so I can rub them on my tire to look like I ride, and on weekends...I actually trailer my bike to the local hangout and then park my truck and trailer behind the building so people think I rode out there, but I really don't know how to ride. I just haven't figured out how to rub the bricks on the front of my bike yet so I have any kind of lean angle.:D
HAHA

MY RIDING STYLE

Wide open till I see GOD, then brake

Wheelies everywhere

Stoppies at every light

Good clean lines through the turns with smooth brake and throttle applications

I am a goofball and ride like one, although I take riding well very seriously

I will do a five mile wheelie before the end of summer, not a "it felt like five miles" but an honest 5 mile marker signs wheelie.

I also plan on taking the R1 out for a track day this year. i have never been on te track with a bike that had real power, I think It will be fun. Me and my buddy endurance race a 99 F4, but it's a no turning, no stopping, pack a lunch if your trying to go somewhere bike...lol Be fun to see the difference between the race bike and my street bike.

I will also be drag racing when ever I can cause hell it's fun and cheap :)

We ride hard.
Wheelies, stoppies, burnies whenever the cops aren't around. And even when they are!-I have some video of my friend and I doing stand ups about 80 yards ahead of a cop, didn't know she was behind us. She was cool , she let us go. :rock
