Myself and Aikata went on an awesome ride this morning.

We headed up to Canyon Lake/Tortilla Flats (for those from Arizona).
Its about a 14mile, 10-30 mph, narrow, 2 lane twisty road.........
I have not been on this road and this is only my 4th or 5th time on this type of road on my Ninja. I actually did pretty good. I used the techniques that work best for me in those tight corners but also used the "look and turn" techniques as well.

I did however over shot a couple of corners and put on the breaks, that pumped up my heart a little!! :lol: But all in all I think I did pretty good and I seem to be more confident and pushing myslef as I ride more.

Thank you Aikata for a nice morning, and I look forward to another ride.
Oh and by the way all...Aikata is an excellent rider, and don't ever underestimate the power of a Ninja 250!!!

Cool! I know people who won't ride that hwy 88 even in a car :wink:, especially beyond Tortilla Flat. You have to be wary of the cars & pickups coming at you on that road..they like to take their 1/2 of the road right out of the middle :evil:

Never underestimate ANY Ninja, or those adrenalin-pumping twists! :)

It's cool when you start feeling your skills develop. I was feeling that way today myself taking some quick little turns, faster and more lean than I used to. I have got to find some people here to ride with...I get bored by myself. Hmm...looks like I am gonna have to head out to AZ lol :wink:
I noticed that I was leaning more into the curves too, just push a little more every time.
WE would love to have you here!!

I've noticed in the last 4 or 5 months or so that I've been getting as fast and faster than most of the fastest guys out here. I think they all spend too much time doing stunts and too little time learning how to ride the twisties (what little we have).

Glad you had a good and safe time. I told you it was a nice ride. :wink: Nice that Aikata got you out there.

Try the run to the top of South Mountain one time. Not as long, but definately more spooky. :twisted:

I've done it in a car all the way out to Globe/Miami and then back on 60. Too bad it's not paved, it would be a fantastic bike ride. :)

Maybe I need a dirt bike too. :wink:
