9000-miles and six months later, I dragged the footpegs on the Rockster~2 ^c I know that they're capable bikes, it was me that I was worrying about. Finally I was comfortable enough with this bike to really lean it over hard. Latigo Canyon Road in the Santa Monica Mountain on Saturday morning is an awesome ride. No car traffic, no motorcycle traffic. Just me and two other riders in our group. I was feeling in the groove, so I pushed the bike a bit more, next thing I know the right peg went "kriggggg" and my foot bounced up. I was like, "Cool!" A couple more turns and the left went "kriggg". ;f ~`c That was it though. The guy behind me said that it was nifty seeing the sparks flying. Look out, Valentino, I'm a-gunnin' for ya!!! I know this road quite well and I went early so that there wouldn't be traffic around. Canyon carving is quite fun if you take the proper precaution. BTW, full leathers is kind of hot in near 100-F sun.;P Lots of water and Gaterade. And the Under Armour undies truly earned their keeps that day. Sunday, I went riding on Highway 138. This road is also tight and technically challenging. I literally went into corners at 35-MPH in FIRST GEAR!!! It was my first time on that road so I didn't lean the bike over too much.
