All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

One lucky dude! So many ways that could have been worse.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

I couldn't tell what he hit or was avoiding in his lane ?? Reminded me of Tedesco getting lodged into another riders rear wheel during SX this year!

Re: Default Hey buddy, mind if I catch a ride with you?

I don't think he hit anything on the track (besides the other bike, of course).

It looks like he just started drifting out of his lane, and while attempting to correct everything just went squirrely. There are some little pods located along the centerline, and that may have played a small part in target fixation, but those are designed to be run over without much effect.

Can you even countersteer on a bike like that?
