Without knocking anybodies riding skills or the bikes they ride.....

In my 34 years of riding I have come across many riders that can't adjust their riding style to the bike they ride. Skill means sweet blowall if you can't handle a different bike than the one you are used riding.

In short, in plain english, you dont screw a hooker the same way you screw your wife or g/f

Michnus, I ride a lot of bikes, and love each one for it's own unique abilities... and how they mesh to what I can do well, and how they give me confidence to do better with my not-so-good abilities... I'm constantly in a state of improvement and want to keep that going...

My personality has a terrible flaw/awesome ability... I'm flippin competitive... mostly with myself, but I'll try give anyone what-for if I get a chance... so, I need more bikes in the garage.  I'm down to one now, but will have 3 soon enough...

And I don't fall over often...  :biggrin:

I thought that the new TA with its 19 inch front wheel will be a problem of the road and after going to the Honda Academy I realized that the instructor from Honda will probably make a GSXR look good in thick sand.Its all about the rider

Is that guy showing the middlefingers Bobnob. You are an ugly @*$%...  :pot: No, seriously, weird that you have some perception of the forum guys and when you actually meet them or see them on a picture, it is totally not what you imagined.
Bobnob, if that is you, I always imagined you to be a very old guy with grey hair, riding like a woosy.. :ricky:
Trust that little voice in your head that says 'Wouldn't it be interesting if...'; And then do it.

Blazes, you only ride with noobs and gurls,,, so the 800 would look inferior  :deal:
Actually Smithey i ride with a lot of Hard Core Non Forum Mmebers ive ridden with for the past 30 years.
Never post those rides as they are not Forum related and we are just having fun and no need to take pics. The only ones you see is of the noobs and girls.
Hell and i must say that many of the girls on this Forum as well as the others i belong to will kick many a guy on this forums Arse.

I know oom  :ricky:

Especially the girl thing  :thumleft:

Probleem met die "3" ouens wat die swak ervaring gehad het was elke keer as hulle val dan verkoop hulle hulle bikes, wonder of daar nog enigsens brands oor is wat hulle nog nie meer geval het nie, hel as ek elke keer as ek geval het my bike moes verkoop dan was ek al 3 keer deur die brands, mense as jy bike ry val jy so nou en dan om, ek herhaal, MENSE AS JY DS BIKES RY DAN VAL JY SO NOU EN DAN OM, DIT IS WAT DIT AVONTUUR BIKING NOEM, mag dit in eerste wees op sand/modder of op 100 op die grondpad dat jy 'n ginekeloog moet gaan sien.... :pot:, as jy nie wil val nie gaan na die game arcade en gaan ry een van daai speedbike goeters waar jy 'n coin ingooi....., dis nie 'n skande om so nou en dan te val nie, maar moet dit net nie 'n gewoonte maak nie....
The bike is just a blank page, the rider is the writer, the road is the ink....

Wow, those BMW GPS drawing clips are cool.

The bikes used to produce those must have modified suspensions  >:D.

As kak praat gras was was baie van die forum ouens al deur 'n donkie se hol....

Hierdie ouens kannie bike ry nie man....

Ek het self al daai 800 offroad gevat en hy loop soos 'n droom.... baie beter as meeste 650s..... jy het net balls nodig vir daai throttle....  :ricky:

'n Paar videos om te bewys die ouens praat kak...

If he had to show Blazes that finger to his face, he would suit the imagined description.....
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!
