I think perhaps I misrepresented my point. I don't mean to say I fear the bike as if its a sentient being. It's a tool. I simply mean to say that I fear it's capabilities, and as such, I approach it carefully every time I ride. Not so much fear as caution.

Like a table saw. Respect it, and don't Fcuk around, and you'll be fine.

Don't pay attention, or mis use it, and you lose a finger, or are digging splinters out of your stomach

Fixed that for you, bro. I'm sure that's what you meant.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

I personally take comfort in knowing what it can do. It's nice to know that in a tense moment the only thing stopping you from making that corner or stopping in time is you.

Lol just giving you a hard time. Good analogy though. Even a master woodworker can mess up and lose a finger.

Re: Ever been scared of your bike?

I'm scared(respective) of what this machine is capable EVERY time I ride...

There is ALWAYS the potential to be seriously hurt, or killed when you throw a leg over...

RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.
