Well, I hope I gave you guys some good pointers to practice...you guys were looking good by the time we left.

Man funny shit...we went to the Joliet DMV to practice...SHIT IT TOOK me like 20 times to get it down decent.

lmao i am not a pro, never said i was but i know what to do...as you guys saw its not easy on that fucken course with a 9r....OH heres a good excuse for taking me so many times before i got it...my tires are still at race pressure it didn't accrue to me until i was almost home. the lower the pressure the less responsive it is at SLOW speed exercises. ITS true i swear it is..lmao.
well hope i made some good advise guys.

have fun...your getting better

lol it felt like 50...lmao.

i was a bit rusty roo....i gotta fill my tires up to normal full pressure and go do it again. i know i could do it better and faster.


you guys check your tire pressure too if it not atleast 3 pounds under max it fill it to there to do them tight ass slow moves.

FIZZER check yours and then go out and try it...i bet that will help if they are low on the psi, you were looking alot better bro.

and brian. (bnuts) you got ALOT better by the time we were over you went from all over the place to DARN good in your u turns;)

brian (crazy) looking good bro.

erik...looking good also guys.


just remember keep them eyes up not on the ground;)

Ken, thanks alot beleive me what you taught me helped a bunch. You should've seen me going through that course when I failed my test. Now I think that with a little more practice I'll be able to do it consistently and pass the test. Bnutz, Y2K nice meeting you guys. Anyone else that might be reading this thread, if Ken ever puts up a post about doing lessons again, take them it's well worth the time!

-Ryan

Ken thanks,

It really helped me get more comfortable with the new bike. I forgot how hard it actually was to take that test. Oh well, at least it didn't take me 50 times:laughing :laughing :laughing .

Good job Ken these lessons are great for new and old riders.

P.S. the second gear wheelie lessons were kool too.:nono :laughing :laughing

Ken you are the man the pointers you gave me helped me alot in several places in techniqe, confidence and trust of my tires. I gotta find a manual. forgot to ask but when we were doing the circles it was feeling like the front was sliding to the side a little is this tire pressure or just normal I gotta get this bike right it's driving me mad.

thanks again and let me know when the next one is.

And it was nice to meet you ryan and eric hope to see you guys out soon.

bnutz make sure your tires are not over inflated...if they are not (look on the side wall of the tire) then how old are these tires...if there more then 2 years with alot of miles...i bet the compound is pretty hard...at no time doing that kinda stuff should you feel like the tire is sliding...UNLESS your on gravel;)

rear tire 3 weeks old front I think like 1 year old all the miles on these tires I put on which is about 2500 miles. I think it may not be the tires but the way my suspension is setup I have done nothing outside of new rear tire. it is exactly how I bought it. gotta get into it and start working but lack of time and rainy days have prevented this so far. :jester

Ahh, the goofy DMV test. I aced that on my Ninja 250 while my buddy narrowly passed on his 996 and he was a much more experienced rider.
