Thanks, Dave! backLiz, nothing better than a movie with a hot chick and a motorcycle!
Next time I want to see you dragging your knee!!!
Lots of curves, huh? Hmmmmm....Thanks, Dave! back
And you just might see me dragging knee one day! I want to go to one of the Keith Code motorcycle schools, probably just a one-day, but, as Spok noted, we have lots of curves and I really want to be more comfortable riding them.
Liz,I have to say I'm still a bit nervous about the tight curves on our roads. Some of the corners are poorly banked and some have been torn up by truck trailer hitches, so they can get a bit dicey.
Really, I know I will have more confidence when I get more seat time on those bits of the road (it's a straight shot in to my office).
Dave, that's good advice. I just can't figure out WHICH road to make my practice road. They're either too low of a posted speed, or don't have the kind of curves that I dislike (and need to get better at), or are not smooth enough. Ooohh, now it sounds like I'm making excuses. I'd better shut-up and just get out there! :biggrin: LOL!Liz,
Find you a good road to make your "favorite" and then practice on that. One that's really smooth and in good shape. That will let you practice the skills with some confidence that you know the road. I've got one myself and it's where I always go to practice....when I get a chance!
Daemon, how do you keep your camera so steady? Do you have a small digital, or some kind of steady cam mount? Very nice footage! I'll check out more of the videos soon; I just took a look at the Steamboat vids.
