Kevie, Paul was just yankin' yer chain. My nostrils were black with titanium dust and smoke after riding behind him and his sparkies in Arkansas.

It couldn't have been that John. Whenever I was riding behind you, I couldn't breathe from laughing so hard at seeing you ride.

No knee dragging for me, and I don't ride on the track...my stones just aren't big enough to get the knee down in the twisties. I figure if I'm that fast through the corners, I'm asking to pitch the cliff or cross over the centerline and ruin some SUV's grill...

Thumbs up Drop a Knee

I highly recommend you don't drop a knee on a city street. I will only do it on a stretch of road way out of town, in mid-day, when the light is at it's peak, with my high beams on & a helicopter spotting oncoming traffic for me,
(actually I'm just kidding about the high beams).
Really though, I have done the pavement knee slide dance, but only in places I know there's no chance of someone pulling out in front of me (no streets or driveways etc) & that there's virtually no traffic on the road ever.:angry:
We have two real good for that here on some real deserted streets. Most people have to get past the mental "lean limiter" in their head first & that's the hardest part.

Have you ever dragged your knee either on the street or on the track?
Yes! I have put my left knee down on the track, at a DP Safety school day. DP school was great, providing the level of supervision and guidance you needed. The track was www.thunderhill.com just outside Willows Ca. Awesome day. It was my first time on any track and I was needless to say I was thoroughly pleased to drag several times on turn 11.

AFM racers I have ridden with have dragged knees on the street, but I think itís a rare condition where itís anything but high risk.
