    Playing in the lot

    If I was to set up a little parking lot course (ART style), what are the chances of my tires slipping on the paint used to mark out the spaces (I'm talking pretty much full lean here).
    Blah, blah, blah . . .

    Stay off the paint bro. We all try our best. In the dead of summer, with a clean lot and clean tires... they are ok

    I wish.
    I'd say exactly what Cos said, and remember that road tempature is a big part of sticking to the ground (as well as tire temp of course). Right now wouldn't be a good time for any 'ART' style stuff.

    Paint = slippery

    I notice that when I go over crosswalks in the rain I have less traction. Sometimes rear wheel will spin out a little. I'm guessing that this sorta thing could be dangerous... Especially if you were leaned over.

    Yeah, I wasn't talking about anything less than ideal conditions (won't go near the stuff in the rain) but yeah, it'd probably be a better idea to wait out the warmer weather.

    I went down at the pocketbike track with my bike. My dang knee still hurts sometimes. Curse those white lines!!!!!!

    Just make sure your apex isn't in line with the long legnth of the white line.
