But you are free to voice your opinion this is the internet and that is what people do best.
We are Americans free to express our opinions, however dumb they may be. ;D

You seem to understand what happens in forums on the internet. This is the way I innitially saw the video that you called funny.

You got a couple of wanna be racers out having fun. It looks like they are basically staying on their side of the road. They are probably living the dream of being outside the law by speeding. Someone is continuelly riding up on them to the point where they are intimadated and want him to go by and maybe he thinks it is funny. All of this is just what happens on the road in the USA. Hopefully you live and learn. An accident could happen to anybody at any time.

I don't mean to rain on your parade. The video is of a great road and if you had not presented it in a manner that made fun of less talented riders, I would have found it more enjoyable. Thats why I wish you had not presented this as a funny video. Maybe it is good to just laugh at things we can't change. Maybe thats what you are doing. "I'm just sayin"

I gave them props in my first post. This is an excellent place to learn how to ride fast.
The Cherohala is a good road to learn technique. Yeah... The roads are no place to do this... Blah, Blah, Blah...
We have all been at that skill level before; though some of us may have forgotten.
These guys had a good practice pace and by this time next year they will be much faster and more confident.


No… I do not have a DesmoRR. That belongs to my buddy Steve.
I went to buy a MV F4i and decided it was way to much bike for my riding area.
Then I looked at the 1098s and it too seemed too much HP for how I ride.
I bought the 848 because it is the most practical for my location and the roads which I frequent.
I have spent several thousand miles on a 1098 and I am glad I bought the 848.
The DesmoRR can get you  in over your head very quickly.
There is no room for mistakes on a DesmoRR.
The Termi Exhaust on that DesmoRR cost more than a new Concours 14.

Just something to think about when you are debating that the price of your next bike might be too high.

They are off of the seat without any lean angle. One guy almost got his knee down the bike was just about straight up.






That is the basis and reason for learning good body position .
Hey, the kids were a little shakey but they are getting there.
I dont know why you feel the need to ridicule them ,if they were THAT  slow then it was no real feat that you caught and passed them.
I cant make it out ,what are you saying to them when you pulled into the gas station?

 If you've ever talked to sport bike riders and asked their opinion about how well a big bike like the C14 handles you would find this video funny. The rest of you should just untwist your knickers and move on.

1) Not bad form. not good, but not as bad as I have seen.

2) Looks like me riding my C10, but I don't put my knee out. Yes, I need to work on my form.

Dave O...

Are you a  "Glass half Empty" kind of guy?
You should take another Xanax and try to smile more.
Life is much too short. Why so bitter?


PS... Reread the entire thread. All of us support the two guys.
They are learning to ride fast. And they are doing it in a safe environment... New riders are fun to watch.
I would like to see a video of you learning to ride. I bet that would be funny.
