ER2…Great post and exactly what I was looking to hear I think.

RedDog-hilairous about the loaded guns, I was going to attempt the basic motor school this past spring, probably should have done it for nothing else but the training but backed out at the last second due to a scheduling conflict.

Soap…Yeah most of the LEO around here are ok…Im down in MoCo. Little different policing issues than up here towards Fred. Co. We'll have a good time. I just checked weather everything still looking good.

Thanks again! I'm an LEO myself so I've seen the good the bad the ugly. Just want to get better.
 
Any chance you can (even if you have to pay for it yourself) go though the school that teaches the Motor Cops how to ride?

Yeah, the next time the motor school opens I'll be able to get into it. I was signed up for the last and then backed out due to a scheduling conflict.

Lots of times a bike tire's wear pattern in influenced far more by the roads that are constantly travelled versus the rider that travels them. Around here I have to find ways to 'curve up' the sickeningly straight runs of miles and miles and miles of infinitely boring asphalt. I treasure the few curvaceous backroads that I keep traversing to help round out that highway flat spot that is constantly trying to overshadow my hard work with the shoulder regions of my tires. Never thought much of it with just the Wing, but with the RC I am so much more aware of that dreaded centre flat strip (I'm not using the chicken strip moniker anymore) that I am beginning to hate our Highways dept for making things so doggone safe and boring on our highways. 


I never get lost, there's always lots of people telling me where to go!

This may even be able to be it's own topic but I think it fits well within this chicken strip convo to be added:

How do people feel lane position effects your "chicken strips" (street riding/not track). But if a rider uses the entire lane in the twisties their strips I'd imagine may be smaller or closer to the edge correct? That compared to a rider who stays near the centerline or rides the shoulder (his/her) choice or maybe riding with a partner. I guess a lot of variables would get thrown into this correct? Of the speeds were the same in the same turn I guess the rider who stayed "in line" would actually have more wear on the tyre then that of the person using the entire lane. But the person using the entire lane would be able to carry more speed into the corner therefore having more lean angle I'd imagine.

Maybe this isn't a question. Haha. I think I answered it. Just want to see people's view on this.
