Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

Im a fairly new rider, and its great to know that riding a sports bike isnt only about getting to the finish first, or going balls out in the straights. Ill definitely keep this in mind next time im on the road. GREAT article. Thank you for posting.

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

I wish more people would follow this! We get a bad name on the streets for the people who ride opposite of this!
Very Good Read

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

This is an awesome article, really puts into perspective how street riding should be. Have heard many stories of 120+ MPH riding on the street, not sure where this is happening but know the roads and cops of the US that does not sound like a real good idea. The one thing the is forgotten is the new rider, who will more than likely feel the pressure to ride beyond their means and end up donating their DNA to the ground or donating their hard earned cash to the police or insurance agency. This article is just what I needed to keep my focus on the road, the race track maybe different but for now I want to thank the author for taking the time to write something that just makes sense.

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

A great read.

Most days when out on the weekend just going for a cruze enjoying riding and not thinking the road is a racetrack I still encounter many who believe the road is a racetrack.

More people should read this passage.. might bring them back to reality

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

Hi,

I just wanted to include myself in the group of guys who think this is a fantastic read & piece of advice!

Not sure if any of you will have read my other posts, but i'm new to this (again)...
I have not had a bike for around 4 years, after a bad accident involving a car which pulled out in front of me, and me ending up with barbed wire around my neck... hanging on a fence.

Although this acident involved a car pulling out in front of me, I was probably going too fast & was probably not in 'the pace' mindset.

Excelent article, and I will deff be trying to adopt this method of riding with friends!

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

Very good read, especially about being a good leader and a good follower. There are many types of personalities who ride bikes. This article points out the different traits but is not directed at a specific person.

Evaluating oneself can be a great part of maturing as a rider...actually realizing what traits are possessed is also good.

Push it to the limits on the street, race anything fast you see, and most importantly FTP!

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

Reading this had me in my mind cruising my favorite back-roads, with very puckering. Anybody who's still riding with a passion( & a few road cherries) years later knows the Art of cornering is what Sport bike riding is about and this article sums it up perfectly. The Public road's can be enjoyed safely while sacrificing very little with " The Pace".

p.s I'm still guilty of cracking that throttle every Blue moon though.... love hearing that 750 engine spin up too much to completely abandon it....

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

never knew the outside tire lane of a car is the cleanest when the corner is dirty. Great read!

Re: A MUST READ!!!! "The Pace"

Good stuff to read..I think most rider with big cc's bikes on the streets are guilty of cracking that throttle open but you gotta control yourself on public streets its not a track to wild out on. Just the other day if I was riding hard I would of wiped out on a dead deer splattered on the road in a turn but I was able to manuver myself around that.
