Mike, as you well know, it was so different from how you or I had ever ridden a motorcycle - it was just a shock. We sometimes think we ride our bikes hard but we only use a little of their capacities, don't we? That ride with Jason was SUCH an eye-opener! I'm glad you commented, Mike. I felt like no one understood. Thanks!
Quote from MotorMike: It gets worse! After the two-up rides, and everyone went back in the classroom. A few of us started pumping Jason about what his pace "two-up" was compared to racing. He kept trying to brush us off and change the subject, but we persisted. Finally, he relented and said, "Guys, I'm only running about 20-25% race pace out there with you on the back!" Ahhhhhhh! Lot's of moaning and headshaking after that. I can hardly believe that! I can believe 60% or some number like that... I guess I just don't want to believe that guys can ride motorcycles that much better than I can - THAT much better. And in my case he was doing it two-up on a stock-and-standard K100RS. Not a Superbike on slicks. He even had a scared-to-death passenger back there!This is the video that most obviously shows me my place in the world of riding ability. On my best day I may have been mid-pack in these guys, who generally are far past their best days.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llMFtQb4lLs
Wow. Corser has maybe 30 horsepower, no rear suspension, almost no front suspension, effectively no brakes...and he rides around all those genuine racing bikes in just a few laps. Wow.
