I thought this was pretty interesting coming from a 2 time world superbike champ

I had such a good time and that was the first time I'd been on a sportbike on the street since I started racing in 90. Freeway scared the hell out of me, but the canyons were cool. All I could see was telephone pole, cliff, rocks, etc. I was crap slow!!!! I was in the back off the pack with Catalina, yes that's right a women.

I could see why he would be so slow, He's totaly out of his element and cliffs, rocks and unknown roads would scare the crap out of anybody..

Im sure like me, most of us go faster on the track anyway.. But nowhere near as fast as the big CE (that guy is awesome, definately a future MOTO GP champ)

Ride Fast, Ride Smart
