We will see youtube videos from N1ickey of Groms on Mulholland Drive dragging hard parts and washing out before you know it, lol.Its going to happen... i just hope people remember to ride within their means.
It does seem that way In Thailand anyway.is it me or does the asian crowd not believe in gear?
LOL....Ii rolled and slid about 60 feet when i had my little off. I ended up 10 feet from the bike as well. Proximity to the bike after the crash doesnt usually mean much.
He looks a little down and out.
I think the meant in Asia.It does seem that way. In the states you see a lot of people riding with no helmets, shorts, even flip flops. In europe you dont see guys without gear and very rarely without a helmet. In Germany it is illegal to ride without a helmet and they enforce it. It takes a lot more money to get a motorcycle license here and you have to do it in stages. I think it goes something like 125cc then 250, 500 then unlimited. It takes time in between each stage. When i got my motorcycle license in washington state many years ago i took a 15 minute multiple choice test and then a 1 hour riding test in a parking lot. I then paid $25 and had my license. I then bought a 1000cc sport bike. I had a lot of off road riding experience prior which helped a lot, but that is not the case for some. Maybe its too lax in the states.
