: one thing may be that he tends to shift too early since he is from a car background and is not used to shift at 16K or whatever the redline is. hence he did not downshift to 4rth at 80. he did walk on me from 100 to 120. the thing that was kinda weird was from 120 to 140 where he did not as much as he did before.
: i think it's alot harder to ride a bike super fast as it is a car. in a car, all you have to do at those speed is shift quick and late and plant your foot on the gas pedal. in a bike, you have to make sure your body position is right. the bag you are carrying has to be in the slip screen. pressing too much on the throttle may give you too little front grip etc.
: i am sure that if we did this more time he would beat me more and more, but i thought i would get totally spanked but i did not so i'm happy.
