Damn. That was impressive. The video that played after that one, People are Awesome was pretty good too.

I got that vid in an email a year ago or so. Proves my point that I always try to make to people - it don't matter what you ride, it's HOW you ride (as to who would be in the lead on a twisty road).

I learned that in AZ when I got passed by a '69 Norton Commando on Hwy.87 outside of Jerome in the twisties. I was riding a '94 CBR600F2, and this was in '99. Guy flat smoked me! Passed me on the inside coming out of a posted 15 MPH curve.

About a year and a half later, me & my buddy got passed coming down Mt. Hamilton from the Lick Observatory by a pair of dual-sports - one I saw was an older XL600R. I was on the same bike, my buddy on a spankin' new GSXR750. These guys passed us like we were standing still! :lol: After buying a DRZ400S 2 years later I saw how that was possible. :D Both our bikes were tanks compared to a dual-sport, even though they had 4x the horsepower.

My ex-father in law was with the Blue Knights and he told me the training that motorcycle police officers must take, and it is impressive. They must cross streams and other off-road obstacles that they might encounter in their line of work.

Myself, my hat goes off to the person that put up all those cones! :D

Me think the cone design is done by attaching a spray can of paint held open & pointed down. Some idiot rides as fast & tight as possible every which way. Then they use the paint as a guide for the cones. <grin>

I'd love to try it! I always prided myself in being able to ride accurately, but never attempted THAT! I enjoyed going slow. A local motorcycle club holds a 50 foot slow race each year....the winner is the last guy across the line. That was fun until we got into riding trials. Once we learned how to stop and balance the race wasn't as fun...but it made the crowds turn their heads!

Back in my MX days I used to hate riding on the practice track with my one friend. He raced pro and was real good. I would keep up with him for a long time but when we stopped I was soaked from sweat and run down he wasn't even tired. Used to really tick me off. :D
