Thank you

New to BARF not to riding but I wish I would have read this PRIOR to riding. I learned things the hard way.

Not sure if this will post properly but here goes. Bare with me as I try to figure out how to use it.

Great post

Even some of the responses on here have good info. My 3rd time ever riding on a bike was from Sacramento to SF.....the other 2 times were at a msf safety class, what a way to begin . I would say potholes, deep cracks and grooves are my worst enemy, and San Francisco is full of them. I've had my share of drivers in cars who are looking right at me and still insist on moving into my lane forcing me off.

The other 2 lay downs were newbie mistakes, riding a 2003 Yamaha R6 with street tires. Your bike will !!!NOT!!! stop on dirt, I panicked in a turn and figured I'd straighten up the bike and come to a bit of an emergency stop. Sure... emergency stops utilizing both breaks sometimes works, by that I mean NOT in a turn and NOT on loose dirt, or earth of any kind on street tires.

Haha I probably should have read this when I stated riding. I started on a CBR600F4i. I got to 115mph a week after getting it cuz I was riding with friends to a bike night and thats how fast they were going. I crashed at 80mph in the twisties a month into my riding, which then took me 3 months to rebuild. I then took it easy for about a month, and then got confident, rode in the front of the pack, and crashed again a month later. Needless to say, it took a bit for me to learn my lesson. Both of those crashes were from panic braking and going to wide. Since then I've crashes twice at the track, but that was do to street tires not keeping up with my angle. I still ride like somewhat of an idiot, but that's just my personality, and I can handleit a little better now, and I NEVER ride out of my comfort level. As soon as I start to feel nervous, I pull way back and just cruise.

Looks like you've got some more learning to do.
