It dawned on me today that its been a looooong time since I spent any time in a parking lot with my bike. In fact, been since I went through PRS. I've NEVER spent an hour or 2 with MY bike, running slow speed drills. So I did.
Went to the old Revy parking lot near Patullo bridge. Its full of poles, and planters, so it was perfect. Did a pile of U turns, figure 8s, panic stops, DEEP figure 8s, etc. Sounds dull, but it actually wasn't. Was a fun way to kill some time this evening.
And I'll tell you, my 459lb Gixxer, with a turning circle of a BC Ferry, was WAY harder than doing the same stuff on a 250 Sherpa. LoL
