Have you ever dragged your knee either on the street or on the track?

Only when I crashed and then I dragged my knee for about 50 feet. Otherwise, no, but I wanna learn.

I would never scratch on public roads. It's irresponsible and dangerous. People that slap a knee down on the street are Squids.

OK, I had to think for just a second on that one and then I just about wet my pants!! LMAO

Oh, and I have yet to get a knee down. I didn't have sliders until this year and the first track day is in two weeks. I'll stick it out there on the street but I told myself I wouldn't "try" to get it down until we went to the track. One of my buddies told me that the first time I get it down is more likely to be one of the times I'm not thinking about it and it's going to scare the crap out of me. I thanked him for that confidence inspiring bit of wisdom.

In defense of street knee draggin'

On actual streets and roads through intersections and stuff: NO, not me not ever...
BUT,
There are a few places on the Beltway around Washington DC where there are PERFECT corners hidden in entrance and exit ramps on I-270, I-495, etc...

I mean its crazy, there's one that is banked a little, completely even radius and smooth as hell.

Oh man, I take it in a sports car at 55mph, get four wheel drift, etc...

On my bike, I could EASILY just drop the knee (but no pucks...not yet). As safe as it gets

Change my No to a Yes. Last track day. It's wierd, once I felt where it was, I dragged almost every lap after that. Kind of like learning to snowboard. Can't do it, can't do it, can't do it, and then once you do it's like "Oh, duhhh."
