Went to a family thing with my kids the other day this guys house. He's like my brother inlaw's stepfather. He is a Harley rider. My brother shows up in his new CBR600Fi4. He and his friend had both bought new 600's his friend purchasing the GSXR. The Guy starts getting down on them because the bikes are cheapily made, they don't have any experience, so on and so forth. Curious, I ask how much experience did he have? He told me that he had a couple hundred thousand miles and a few crashes. He asked me how much I had as I was not riding this day but was talking to my brother about his bike and what I was looking to buy for next year. I told him that I had about ten years and about 60,000 miles but I had not laid one down. Then you don't know [email protected] was the response that I got. Interesting as in that 60,000 miles I have ridden in nine different countries on every type of bike. Mexico and Canada don't count. My question is Who is the more experienced the guy riden forever and falls down alot. Or the guy who rides any time he can get but rides within his skills. This guy had lots to say but it would take too much time. No brains No Headaches.
