I married someone who likes bikes. I ride both... :hss:
he's still up there then?
That Southern Hemisphere gravity is all kinds of backwards. One could probably get used to falling up.
Sort of roadkill in reverse? What is the attraction for the roads for the critters?
Damn, I was hoping for a pair or two.
Billy they are just plain dumb, they will hop along beside you, then just turn 90 degrees and straight into you, or they will just come straight out of the bush, bang into you, you don't get any time to react, never have a chance to grab the brake. Was funny a few years ago on an Enfield Club ride (350/500 single Enfields, you know the bang bang type) and one of the blokes up front had a straight through exhaust. We came across a mob of about 30 roos and me being further back I could see the utter panic in the mob as they scrambled, crashed over fences, into each other, absolute mayhem but at least they headed away from the bikes, not toward us, which they could have easily done. They are bad news
^ isnt that ag pest on your currency? National animal? Anyway, when I come up on an intersection, even though the light is green for me, I look and see if the cars at opposing sides are cueing up, this tells me that the light can turn yellow soon, I don't take green lights for granted and slow down for intersections regardless, unless its totally empty and I can see either side of the road. Cheers and happy safe/fast motoring :vtr2: wish they had a little VFR emo instead of this vtr ound:
BB doesn't have a vfr and Randy has no sense of direction as he will keep going a 1,000 miles in wrong direction.

Every time I ride it is a practice session, whether doing slow parking lot work or riding the twisties. But the most important thing is practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. Muscle memory plays a huge factor in how we ride. It doesn't take long but if we do something wrong all the time it becomes habit and we will continue to do it regardless. 27 is the magic number. If you do the same thing the same way 27 times it becomes habit. Think about that the next time you hit the road and how quickly you get to that number 27.
When I am riding I would never have a chance to remember if I had done something 26 or 27 times, geeze I have enough trouble remembering what day it is
That is kind of my point.
Copying randy isn't a good idea ?
That my weather radar map has officially become my favorite app. Oh! how adore a clear map :whoo:
Not to eat fiber, eat prunes or drink prune juice. Specially if I'm riding for a week or two.
I always look way way down the road ( old habit driving with 80,000 lbs). Always scanning the road for trash, p/u trucks with crap or loose loads in the back, always pass big rigs ASAP----the main thing is stay focused, don't let your mind drift to paying bills or the fight with the wife ha of course speaking from experience.
Don't ride pissed off.
Almost forgot, when riding in the city at a traffic light I NEVER go past the last line on the crosswalk------ stay out of intersections, your a sitting duc

Never take more than .00005 seconds to pay any attention to anything SOW does to his bike, rationalizes his riding style , wants to send a vid of all that weird shit he is into with the shemales and that freezedried cats make great pets.
And the older we get the faster we used to be!nthego:
