I had K7 GSXR 750, and looking at getting a 1000RR this time around. However, I never "mistakingly" got my front tire off the ground. If it came up, I knew that hitting that much throttle at that much speed would lift the tire. I'm sure you know that about your bike too.
Get a 1000rr and then talk to me .. 750cc is not 1000cc .. and one of the most torquiest 1000cc bikes (the 1000rr) out there is not a 750 cc gixxer. The 1000rr has 54% more torque than a gsxr 750... How can you even compare the two?
If your intention wasn't to lift your front tire off the ground, then it was a mistake.. Applying a general amount of safe/non reckless throttle on the 1000rr can do that .. In such a scenario, it hardly warrants a $1000 ticket my friend.
I don't have a problem with anyone that wants to ride as hard as they want to on the street. Just take the responsibility that you want to ride that hard and accept the consequences of the laws in your area for riding that hard. I have exceeded the speed limit, lifted the front tire, etc. plenty of times but I either limit that riding to areas where LEO presence is almost nil or I accept the consequences of riding like that.
See above. You obviously have never ridden a 1000rr.
Do I think these laws are excessive? Sure. Do I think you can blame these laws for more people running and thus wrecking? No.
Hey, i wouldn't run either .. but that doesn't mean I am going to sit here and ignore the fact that this law might give incentive for a good number of riders to run.. Especially in a state that has a no chase law.. Think about that for second
You know what amount of throttle will cause it to wheelie coming from a red light, so you know how to limit that throttle to keep the front tire down. I see no point in accelerating super hard away from a red light, it brings me no excitement, I typically rode hard around twisty road that are also back country roads with very few cops out. If you enjoy coming off a red light and lifting the tire that is fine, just know the cost of doing that could be 1k fines, impounded bike, arrest, etc. if you live in one of these areas.
Whose talking about a red light.. if you lean on the throttle up to 4th in gear while rolling, you can easily get the front up.. how about coming out of a turn and some dumbass is merging into you so you apply throttle to get to safety.. boom, front goes up in 1st->2nd.. 2nd->3rd .. i am not talking being vertically up in the air.. how about an inch off the road. BOOm, dickwad leo sees you.. slaps you w/ 2 points and a $1000 fine.. wtf was unsafe about that? you were within the speed limit and safely handling your bike.. You've ridden around on a supped up 600cc motorcycle in twisties.. congratulations. When you get a 1000cc and learn what torque/power is, get at me.. 50mph road.. safe entry speed into a turn = 20mph.. as you exit, you apply simple acceleration .. wheel comes off ground an inch.. ticket .. $1000. You are not over speed limit and safely operating your motorcycle.
I've heard enough man.. You don't own a 1000cc bike .. don't understand what torque is nor do you seem to understand what a roll on wheelie
is.. Here, let me help "enough power to raise the front wheel off the ground with simple
acceleration. " The large amount of misinformed clowns in this country is the reason why such asinine laws are made and passed... I've never intentionally (INTENT) rode around wheeling my bike because I think its retarded. The intent of the law is to target those clowns.. and those clowns, as you'd understand it have no problem running if caught... So, who gets harmed here.. Someone w/ a bike that has power who is safely operating their bike... Oh, and lets not even get into .. i saw your headlight go up and thus your wheel was off the ground bullshit.
