You crash. You burn. … You live if you’re fortunate. I live near here. Have ridden these roads on my own R1. What do you say? Don’t race on the streets? Don’t ride over your limits? Look at the passersby coming and going. One rider’s tragedy is another anecdote for everyone else. My advice? Be [...]

by JeffNovember 12, 2010 Videos

Thought I’d re-post this video where I’m one of the motojournalists in a Kawasaki promo featuring Team Green’s newest street screamer, the 2011 Ninja 1000. I’m the one in the white Dainese leathers doing the aggressive riding in the opener and other shots. I also wrote a review on the bike for Motorcycle.com here.

Video – Don’t race motorcycles on the street
