It's not just you I'm a freak too Kim. I also pick lines, accelerate through turns and go through tires bigtime.

I just noticed myself doing that, the other day. It just feels natural, I guess.

He he he - I'm there.

I also pick a line, finish my breaking early & try not to make any mid-turn stearing corrections. I try to do almost any mental execise I would do on the track when practicing.

Yeah! I thought I was the only one, my little Escort does pretty well on off/on ramps. Those are fun. I keep making fun of the people who drive slow up them and STILL can't stay between the lines

Hmmmmmm I pick my lines, lean, and scream "LEAD, FOLLOW GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY WAY!!!" I don't feel weird should I? By the way the Jag with the stick is very satisfying

Kim, I do that a lot of the time. Or, uhm, I used to when I drove my civic. But, like Ken, I've totally settled down when driving my car since I got the bike. I always go the speed limit and crap now, woohoo!

Funny thing is I drive my truck harder on the street than my YZF. Fun thing is the Dakota slides rather comfortably through corners when asked.D

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

like most it seems, I also find myself looking thru the turn, shifting in the seat, tilting my head. Gota stay focused for next season right.

Now the better question is how many of us do all that when playing the video games too. Beth has the best time watching Matt and me playin the X-box MotoGP. We both do it. He's a natural. Tongue and all.

I go the speed limit too, it's boring going fast in the car EXCEPT when going through turns That's the fun part.

Plus whenever I play car games on PS (yes I still have an old playstation) I try and lean too.

That's cause you are court supervised. (sorry about that..)

I accelerate through corners, brake before turning, accelerate early and pick a line. Sure fire way to get a SUV off your back end.


I curse when people hit the brakes in corners and can't stay in their lane. It isn't THAT hard to steer.
