For what it's worth...

I like the Bagster covers. They have clips to clip on 'their' bags. The quality is perfect, though they're a fairly pricey.

BikeJohnny is the best way I've found to get them in the states, shipping faster than the US distributor.

I even run a Bagster on the R1 at the track... protects the tank and helps grip with the outside knee.

Looks really gay though, most of the other guys talk about it.

Looks great on an FJR though!

You know how important the looks are to me!! (See the blue tape)





20v: They were real a-holes at my local track yesterday... made me drill and safetywire the whole **** bike... I almost just threw it back in the trailer when he said it... but there was one of those great guys that volunteered his time, wire and drill to help me do it all. But then, being a 95-degree day, I was pretty hosed by the time I actually got out on the track. God Bless STT and NESBA... these local yokels are 'anything goes'! )

Dear Liquid,

As quoted by our resident site ride specialist SC....

"If your in the correct riding position, using proper technique, you don't need that much lean....My riding is mostly doing what I enjoy and what I am faced with here in Texas, which is 2 lane country roads with lots of sweepers. This may not seem like that exciting of a ride for most of you, but done at 80-100 mph definately adds some excitement to the experience (as death looks you in the face at every turn). A good tip for you guys wanting to experience this type of riding, is to first try hanging moving your weight a little further out towards the inside of the turn while keeping a little more of your weight on your outside peg. I think you'll be surprised at how much faster you can go with not as much lean....There are several books about High Performance riding out there...Buy em, read em, and practice the technique first.."

I couldn't help notice you are in complete violation of these
basic universally accepted ride technics. Perhaps your time
would be better spent mastering the "basics".
You seem to have drifted off to the dark side of "Old School"
riding style that has no proven speed benefit. Not to mention
it tends to cause premature wear on the chicken strip area of
the tire.

I and SC are only here to help.

You seem like such a nice young man who just needs
some proper advice and direction to help in your riding form.

Think about it.

Heh... yeah, he's a little confused on the 'inside peg/outside peg' thing... but since he'll be studying with Keith Code (allegedly, yeah right) he'll get straighted out on all that stuff. Maybe someday it'll be from some understanding, instead of copied and pasted from somebody's web site.

(Oh, and yesterday at the track, I was 'afraid for my life' in exactly *ZERO* corners. Sure was hot as ****, though!)

Hey Sherlock, is that "Determination" poster Pedrosa or Capirossi?
