I am enjoying the beating he is taking on the WERA beeb

With the advent and proliferation of track days, this kind of stupid should be relegated to the " back in the day" like FJ600 sport bikes and Dunlop 591s of the pre track day era.

I wore through the knees on my jeans riding a bike shod with 591s back in the day

I get tired of hearing people say take it to the track. If someone wants to drag knee in the street, more power to them. As long as they use a little common sense and are no danger to anyone else. Fuck what anyone else thinks. Not everyone wants or can do trackdays every month.

I used to do stupid shit like that all the time before I started racing.

I used to take trips to NC all the time riding in the mountains and road Deals Gap and road Shady Valley a lot in NC, which is just like Deals but a little shorty with a tad more runoff room.

I guess as you get older you start thinking a little more about when you crash and slide off into a tree and die! If I'm going to die that way, I'd rather it be at 150mph highside on a track than a 50mph lowside into a tree.

For those that have never been on the track and think thats cool.....track is way more of a rush and you can find your limits a lot easier. I used to think I was pushing it on the street....not even close...I was just being stupid.

Common sense goes out the window though when you hit a patch of gravel and slide into a car coming the other way.

That happens a lot....how do you think the driver of the car feels for the rest of his life, running over and killing a dumbass.

You can take someone out on the track just as easy as someone on the street.

Too bad we can't ask Joey Dunlop if he agrees.

For anyone interested, that is 421 in TN, not NC. It is NW of Boone, NC.

ABC rides similar to this used to go on under the radar. That was fun for me until some friends got seriously hurt on the Mindoro Cut. Since then I've noticed the groups have gotten bigger and the pace has slowed down for the benefit of all. Street riding is fun and its a good way to spend the day with friends away from the track and traffic. The last few ABCs I've been on were with riders with track experience and fortunately there were no accidents. I think most of us understand the higher level of risk on the street so we don't ride at the pace that we have lapped at the track. That being said, the pace of a G2G ABC ride is anything but slow.

I agree this guy is pushing teh limits on the street. With a full blow race bike his is asking for trouble. I read the first page or 2 on the beeb and havent read the rest yet but I will. I agree take it to the track but when you are out in the boonies with no one around stepping up the pace is what I like to do and I do keep it safe for me and my friends when I take them on my route up in WI. Everyone on my ABC rides have been satisfied and agree they are safe as we respect the roads and know when to turn up the pace and back it down. If it was not a safe fun ride I am sure I would have people including AM, EX and AMA racers ask to come along as it is one of the funnest routes in the midwest.


At the Gap there is no forgiveness as you see in the vid. You crash you lose. No questions. Obviously this guy is a local and knows every corner like the back of his hand. Also I have never ridden over 75% on an ABC ride that I lead.

I agree Stevo....

Getting taken out on the track is way different than the street. You have plenty of runoff room to slide.

I'd like to hear from some guys on here that crashed doing at least 50mph and hit a curb, guard rail, tree, etc of something hard that doesn't move.....different end result.

Ask Phil about hitting curbs and how many pins he has in his arm.

I've had at least 4-5 highsides at over 140mph on the track and got up and walked away from everyone of them with the worst injury being a seperated shoulder.

Kevin how about getting whacked by a van on Lake Shore Drive going 50+ and flying off my FZR600 onto the ground around 32nd Street. :P That was back in 94-95ish...I don't even remember the accident and woke up in Cook County Hospital. My FZR frame slammed into a lightpole and looked like the letter "L".


Anyone remember when South LSD was a different traffic pattern and there was a huge dip as you went South? I remember guys wheelie'ing down the dip for fun. Chunk you have to remember this since I think a few times I rode this was with Kuntai and those guys.. Heck you were probably there too! LOL
