A new guy that works for/with me & keeps his 929 at my little shop is seeing his way back over from the dark side. I really don't think it was his fault- just bad environment. He didn't learn to ride from a responsible parent or course but from the "homeys" in his hood. He said a typical ride with them meant weaving in & out of cars on the highway at 100+ (just like the jerks we see on the internet). He's got his own business going now, with girl & baby at home. We went out in the sticks today & hit a few of my favorite back roads after which he said "I didn't know we had roads like that here."
I think it was the first time he's seen real riding gear. I'll have him signing up for track days next.
yeah. I think it mostly has to do with the natural process of growing up, not that everyone does (hondastrgtfighter - haha). I was never the highway hotdog but was definitely clueless when it came to gear & such so will try to pass along what I've learned from my wt peers.
