Actually, just look at the rider and what he rides. If he needs the latest and greatest to keep up, HE'S a dud. Kinda like the guy that needs a $2000 set of golf clubs to shoot a 95. If you know how to ride, you don't need much to kick ass. Maybe Sean can show you what I mean.

From your account name I assume you are in the Ramstein area. If so, then you are probably referring to Johaniskreuz. That's a fantasic area, and the cars generally avoid it on weekends. It is not unusual to find 250 riders there to enjoy the roads in the forest.

www.johanniskreuz.de

I saw many crashes there when I lived in K-town, but, because the speeds are low, no serious injuries.

You will probably do well against your buddy in that environment. Just make sure you get the best safety gear you can get. Hein Gericke and Polo have shops that sell lots of cool gear. Have fun.

Re: Save your keyboard

By saying "hell" you must be referring to the AMA.

BTW, I did ride Buell's & I loved'em. Just not enough to put my own money on one. I'm really glad all Buell owner's here are happy, but I know 2 owners(out of 2) with real build quality and reliability issues. But nobody denies they're improving.

I'm neither new to the street bikes nor new to the area, been over here a little over a year. We are already planning trips to the Alps on the bikes, I was just there last month ( car ), and all I could imagine the entire time was experiencing those turns on a bike. I used to work at a Suzuki / Yamaha dealership as a technician so I have ridden everything from a Burgman to a Hayabusa; and yes I have already taken the MSF courses, like 5 yrs ago. Thanks for the input.

Thanks for the input, we don't intend to "race" we are probably just going to f*ck around. My dealer just sent me an email today saying he got a memo from Buell about my bike... not sure what all this is about....

Yeah, I anticipated being able to kill him from standing starts, and in the turns; but I highly doubt the rolling-starts. We aren't going to be doing any serious "racing" just messing around mostly. the dealership sent me an email today... something about a memo from buell. no news on that until thurs though

Actually I am having my bike delivered there so I can race it there, then I am going to ride it over the ocean to Germany... that's my pla at least. No, just kidding. I am not going to be doing any serious racing... what some like to call "light-light".

I am going to make the dealership do all of the above while i am overlooking everything, seeing as how it is like a 50 mile ride from the dealership to my residence. Dealer emailed me about how he got a memo from buell... better not be bad.
