Where as I agree with this I will go about it a big more subtle. Even good stingers wear gear. Granted you're doing great, won't take much to take a digger. Atleast wear a good jacket. I hear skin Graft sucks.

I don't do wheelies because they are really hard on the bike. Doesn't take long to blow out your forks.

I feel your struggle thug, I am also practising atm with the wheelies! Managed to pull a decent one on my street triple the other day. I found I learnt better when I just practising getting to the balance point then bringing it back down with the rear brake, and some throttle when you get close to the floor to cushion the force down on the forks

I am awaiting delivery of my new zx6r from south London Kawasaki, should be here after I get back from a holiday I go on the 14th may! I have the street triple in riding up for sale so trying not to ride it. When I get the 6 I'll get some videos for ya.
I'm still suffering with poor throttle control, need to grip my legs more and free up my grip. Seems your going good though and I'm sure soon you'll be running with the best of em!

I think you should be wearing a Knox track vest under that t shirt or some under armour, you will still be comfortable but won't bust yourself if you off!!!!

In so far as the zx10r idea, I think of this as taking a knife out of an irresponsible adolescents hands and replacing it with a gun....good luck lol because the zx10r (or any litre bike) will not take your fun and games so lightly. Just saying mate....at least wear full gear when u swing a leg over one

Yeah, if you try to clutch up a 10 like you do your 6 you will find yourself sliding not so gently down the tarmac in a hurry.

I would reckon it would be pure joy facing various trails and testing your faith in your bike and yourself trying to learn something new, love that buzz when you totally achieve a new skill!
