At the risk of sounding like 'johnny-safety', knee dragging on public roads is stupid.

If you want to go fast, take it to the track.

never crossed the double yellow....i know its kinda unsafe to do it on the streets, but honestly today...i wasnt really trying to...and for some reason i just did....and people were passing me all day so that lets you know how fast i really am going...i wont be trying to do it again anytime soon, because i am saving up for the superbike school...

please take it to the track. Two weekends ago a hardcore 9 rider (the highway around here all riders go on) was airlifted to the hospital. He's alive, but was in a coma for a while. He went off the railing. He didn't hit anything...not sure exactly what happened.

But it was found that he was going 90 in a 45.

When you get your knee down, you are obviously not leaving yourself much margin for any unexpected things like gravel, debri, deer, squirrels, and stupid cars crossing the double yellow. Think how much time it will take for you to get back up on the seat to make an emergency maneuver? And in that time, it could be too late.

Always ride no more than 6 out of 10 on the street if you must go fast. Simply because it is not an uncontrolled environment. On the track, eat your heart out.

everytime i lean when riding around, highlighted above is what really scares me a lot.

even though i have "dependable" pilot powers, i still think i'm going to low side everytime i go around a bend. i still have about half an inch of space between treadwear and the edge of my rear tire.
