Gimme a hundred bucks on seruzawa/Marauder out-braking Kook/Ninja. Come to think of it, gimme another hundred on seruzawa making better lap times on the Marauder.

Give me 200 on the fact that KWalterMitty doesn't even own a bike. When you post a picture of 'your' bike and that picture is from a magazine test, you the BS meter just hit the red line.

Apparently the self-professed GenX technophile doesn't even own a digital camera while this technophobe babyboomer GPTB has 3.



Kook is certainly the gift that keeps on giving.



Think he'll show up today after he gets the new Chinese dinette set and entertainment center he bought at Walmart assembled?

Default Re: Lay-R-Down

I might be completely off base here, but I sure do think I have a lot more control of a motorcycle when I'm sitting in the seat - or standing on the pegs - with both wheels in contact with the surface I'm riding on rather than having the motorcycle laying on it's side, sliding down the road with me either on top of or under the motorcycle.



About the only time I would ever consider laying a motorcycle to avoid a crash would be in a situation where decapitation would be eminent, such as a truck across the road, totally blocking my path of travel.



Proper use of the brakes, clutch, body, et all will prevent such useless carnage.



Of course, this is simply my opinion.

It looks like there are one or two comments that if you're about to broadside a car, you should "lay it down" - Nope. The EU has conducted actual tests, and it is much better to learn to jump up off the bike and try to vault over the car than to lay it down. I don't think I'll be practicing this skill, however. But I also don't plan to practice laying it down. Oh wait, how about practicing so that I can actually brake, or come very close to stopping, within 125 feet.

When the line is especially tight the moose can be replaced by a dead squirrel. Works for me.

Default Ask Kent Kunitsugu of SportsRider Magazine.

Let's ask Kent Kunitsugu of SportsRider Magazine. Sorry I don't trust MCN and Fred Rau.. I sent an email to Kent. I am sure he will laugh me off the planet but I think Kent is honest and definitely knows a hell of lot more than the staff of Motorcycle Faux News (MCN)
