Eric, this is a joke right? He cannot really be this much of a wank, can he?

Kid at one time, and Eric will confirm, you had to run 250 novice on a TZ, than score points for your LWT Expert, on a TZ, than score points for a HVY WT license just to race a big bike, F1 in our day. There was a reason for this, LEARN WTF!!! how to race at that level.

Sorry for the Rant.

I just stumbled across this thread which led me to the original thread from last year. Crazy shit. I thought I was an attention whore. Wow.

Here's the thing about going fast... everybody listening? To be truly fast you have to learn how to crash. The only way to learn how to crash is to practice crashing. Practice crashing on the brakes, on the gas, at max lean, etc. Figure out all the different ways to crash. Why? Because once you know how to crash, you'll know how NOT to crash. Smart riders do most of their crashing practice on dirt bikes or flat track bikes, or super moto bikes, or mini bikes. But if you've got the money and health insurance you can do it on a road race bike. I've crashed my motox bike so many fucking times now that when it happens I just get up pissed off because I know better. Or at least I should know better.

So to Andrew I say, do what makes you happy but don't expect to ever be even AFM fast without falling down a few times. And if you want to test your ability to learn something from just studying it; study the sport of motocross, pick up a new 450, and meet me out at Club Moto some weekend. I'll tow you over a few triples... it's easy.

I can pretty much save you the money and guarantee you that the slow is coming from you.

You really like to toot your own horn.

congrats on picking up your pace and competing as you have done.

Get some coaching if you want to go faster, don't waste your money playing bike tag.
Ahhh my thoughts exactly . . Isnt jason putting down 50s on his sv . To quote my man dan sewell, "THIS IS A TURNING SPORT AND YOU HaVe TO learn to GO FAST IN CORNERS"

Not sure if Racer V is still reading this... Prolly just jerking our chains.
Start small/lower performance bikes.
on a scale of 1-10
1 being a YSR50
5 SV650
7 top level club bike
8 Moto America
10 MOTO GP
1-10 represents the performance level of each bike.
On a YSR I could have you dragging your knee in 10 minutes and sliding the tires in a couple hours in a parking lot with a course that is setup to teach you. Because you don't have to worry about 5 HP throwing you on your head. You can concentrate on controlling the bike.
Step up to the SV. It's more fun to smoke someone on a 1000 while riding an SV than getting smoked by an SV when riding a 200 HP 1000.
MOTO GP bike you would take all day just to be able to hold the throttle wide open to a decent braking point. Learning to slide it around is a different beast.
In racing you have to slide from turn in point to exit of most corners.
It is easier to find the limit on a YSR than a MOTO GP bike.
I had a rear tire from Daytona, I used for a couple years on track days because it would slide so easy.
The best way to learn to slide is something like a XR100 with a street tire on the rear. Riding on a dirt track, on something like a TT track. No jumps just turns similar to a mini road race track.
But if you're just trying to do some crazy experiment to try to learn to ride a monster. Please introduce yourself, I want to watch the show.

Wow, what a fun and interesting thread this turned into.

What I have found to be true about being "fast".

First with a canyon riding "perspective." 10 years ago I was one of the fast local riders. In the top 20 for certain. Then as the years went along I found I was perhaps the fastest. NOT because I got better or faster, but because all the other guys faster then me moved out of state, switched to dirt bikes, or simply stopped riding on the street or stopped riding all together.

Skaggs has been our race track up here in the northbay. So one day I was riding with Jamie AKA The Reverend (who has stopped riding and moved out of state). He was thought to be the in the top 3 of fastest riders on Skaggs. I was unable to keep up with him. So one that day we decide to ride HWY128 over to Calistoga. I just twisted the throttle and took lead position. Jamie was behind me the whole way and I slowed on the straits to let him catch up. We arrive at Calistoga and he says, "holy sh!t Mark, your fast as fvck." I responded, "well yeah, on this road I am, because I've ridden it like a thousand times and you've only done it a dozen times. And you're faster then me on Skaggs because you ride it 100 times to my 10 times."

So the answer of this is "who is the fastest rider?" There is no definitive answer. Fastest? On which road? Which year? Are they even still riding?

Second, racing. Now I don't race, but I have observed the following. You need to start and finish the race. You need to be healthy on race day, you need no distractions in your life on race day. Your bike must be set-up and mechanically capable of making the 20 or so laps. Racers tend to be faster on their home track. Some racers are better/faster at tight corners. Some racers set great open track times and poor race times. So the racer needs to know strategy and needs to know their competition's riding style to take advantage of it. You need to implement your strategy and skills and bike set-up, without crashing. You need to be able to afford to race that day. As time goes on, some racers just loose their desire to race; which can be from many reasons, like fear of another injury, or they fall in love with their new child and just rather be with them. And just getting discouraged. And one last thing. A few years back one of the motogp racers became champion without winning (aka placing 1st) a single race, he got it on points alone - and that is a whole other strategy.
