    I just like to corner hard. No stunts or top speed runs for me. Front wheel comes up now and then but only due to hard acceleration, not wheelies for the sake of wheelies. Used to do them a lot in my 20s...

    I think I ride kind of mellow these days, none of my riding friends think so though. Perhaps I need new friends.

    Well I wheelie when I take off but other than that its all about the corners. Top speed stuff I typically run out of straight away before she is really breathing.

    All the above for me, and would also like to add
    an occasional slow cruise on my Vintage bike and
    touring the country on other days.
    I love it all.....i'll even find a way to smile on a moped.

    LOL at the Moped story. Kind of the same way I used to feel when the EX 500's would fly by me in the corners on the track.

    Some are Drunk on riding.. Don't care whos behind and how fast the may be going.

    Myself I guess #1 and #2.

    SpeedFreak=cant stay under 3 digits
    kneedragger= gone in the corners

    Although need to practice on the cornering...

    And of course the once in a while a stroll......but I guess these days anything under 3 digits is considered a stroll....

    What kind of Rider are ya

    I don't ride triple digits (much)
    I don't drag my knee (mostly cause I don't have knee pucks)
    I don't wheelie (intentionly)

    but I do ride a lot, average 800-1000 miles per week in summer and a little less, 800-1000 miles per month once snow hits

    and I can be a hooligan on gravel roads

    What kind of Rider are ya

    I don't ride my bike. I put some numbers on the front of it.. to cover the headlight, chopped the fender off and covered up the rest of the lights. I also cut the that big exhaust thingy off the right side, so ugly. I have towed my bike over 1,000 miles in the back of my trailer. I always try to pick up chics outside dunkin donuts standing next to it. People are usually inquisitive about the bike, especially when I tell them it is a Moto TT/GP bike and that it is a 2-4 stroke with double barrel carbs. Some days, I'll take the trailer up to louden, they have dunkin donuts up there too. But its the best when I have the wheelie bar on it. Except the wheelie bar is just the back of an old chair with wheels on its that I duck-taped to the back of the rear fender. So why is it squid isn't listed up there? *grin* I guess having a sport bike doesn't make me a sport rider, so maybe I don't have any place in this board till I get a knee down in a corner or ride some wheelies or stoppies??

    Attempts at humor aside, I'm just a normal rider, tend to like to ride faster than the speed limit in the corners when I'm by myself, but always on the safe side (never had a peg down). Been looking to improve my riding skill, but still have a long way to go.

    well lets see?
    I can do a 10.2 1/4 mile. I'm pretty quick through the corners, and I hit 186 on the speedo quite often.
    oh yeah, i'm back to 2nd gear wheelies ever since the R1 threw me off at a buck twenty.

    peace

    ps
    always on a closed course

    Well for me it depends on the day. But I do shoot for a mega smile factor everytime the bike comes out, that is what makes it all worth it

    I guess I enjoy the faster riding and cornering.(I enjoy the corner more when there are no stones) I hope to do some street/track schools this summer to get myself more comfortable. Most of my wheelies are from hard accelerations. I'm not comfortable with the wheel in the air. I'm too cheap to burn the back tire too. I guess I'm a boring sod!
    I guess I should trade the bike in for a Goldwing!
