Chip Posted May 3, 2006 Share Posted May 3, 2006 I read a very cool street riding article several years ago called, "The Pace" by Nick Ienatsch. You can read the original article at this link. It's a great game to play when you're riding with several friends. The game is excellent if you want to do "spirited" riding safely and when the group you're riding with is made up of different levels of riders. There are three (3) important rules. 1. No brakes allowed - if you touch your brakes, it's a "crash" and you go to the back of the pack. This is a slight modification from Nick but it sure keeps you from going into corners too "hot." 2. You must stay in your lane (even if it's a 4-lane road and/or the road is clear - if you touch a line, it's a crash and you go to the back of the pack. 3. You can accelerate in the corners but once you're out of the turn, and your bike straightens up, you have to slow down and let everyone behind you catch up - This keeps less skilled riders (especially if they're young)from taking chances as they try to keep up. After all, anyone can go fast in a straight line... If this sounds like fun to you, please...get the article, read it, and ride safely. Disclaimer Of course, if you want to race...get on a track. Please don't endanger the oncoming motorcycle while you're pushing your limits on a public road. Link to comment
