Everyone says that, but that's what I work on now; I'm now soo much concerned with numbers (though I do hate it every time I get passed and want to chase folks down) but with rain, there is even that much less room for error, no?

I really only got caught in the rain 3 times or so and I was not confident in the tires or braking abilities of the bike, at all, and this was street.

Re: R6 Forum Chat/Respect Thread version 14.1

I ride in the rain all the time. (Well, whenever it rains here.) It's really not that big of a deal. Just don't whack the throttle open or smash the brakes and your fine.

You still do it now that you have the truck?

You know how these tards drives here when it's 85, I do not have that much faith in them when it's 50somehting and wet...

Also, I had rubber lines at the time, now I've got some nice stuff I trust wont fade; yes, I've felt it on the street...

Scott, I think you've seen me ride (at least on the track) to know that I do not whack the throttle open.

that's like saying that running sprints is good for your arms, because they move while you run.

Don't get me wrong, Call of Duty was epic back in the day when it was only for PC, but nowadays not so much : /
It's the same damn game!


What's the difference dude? The game is still solid as fck, so have fun with it! I know my way around a MW2 game-- do you have that?

Meh. You just gotta start slow and push it ever so slightly harder the next lap and the next lap until you start to feel her move around on you-- then you know you're at the limit.


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

Yeah, still opt to ride in the rain sometimes. I really hate driving cars and I really love riding motorcycles.

Johnny Mac just needs to get a nice healthy track crash out of the way. Like a 60mph low-side, where he gets up after and is like "oh, shit ... nothing really happened."
