This has started to irritate me as well… particularly when they think they can ‘race’ me when I clearly have no intention of going past 6-7K rpm resulting in them crossing two lanes and coming very close to my boot! :crazy:
Pedestrian sauntering around in the road? = good stoppie practice.
Found out today that a good stoppie can be induced by a pedestrian crossing the road diagonally facing away from you. First apply heavy braking front and rear (sound horn) and then (as pedestrian doesn’t look but jumps the wrong way and ends up right exactly in your path) release the rear to avoid lock up and double the pressure on the front…beautiful stoppie and no-one hurt.
The other option with this one is knowing you have the stopping under control, lock the back wheel to induce a nice bit of tyre squeal and scream as loud as you can…sh!t 'em selves everytime :Whistling:
Almost had a pedestrian this morning. After ignoring the green man, then no man, he decided to cross on the red - what the hell, why not. Then, completely missed the white Ducati, complete with termis launching off the lights 20 yards away.
My fault - a black guy, wearing black, in the shadow of a railway bridge. Clearly visible to all… compared to a fuggin’ black-ops ninja sniper.
