Where I ride the pine straw can be eye opening as well. Good to see you kept rubber side down.

I've pointed out to my wife the importance of safety devices such as the simple ABS on my bike. Of course cornering ABS would be better along with traction control and I happened to notice the new KTM 1290 Super Duke GT has all of these safety features! See, a new KTM would improve my safety. It really would.

IMO those things are all good and fine to have but you are really better off not having them to start with and learning to handle the situations rather then relying on a computer to do them for you. i grew up doing a lot of off road riding and that will build low traction skill very rapidly lol

Yeah, off road guys get a kick out of how easily street riders get spooked by losing a little traction. I came up in the dirt, but it's been so long ago, I'm one of those skittish street riders.
I did an adventure ride with a bunch of them KTM types a couple weeks ago and started to get back in the groove a little. I'm doing another one this morning.
BTW, I don't think any of them use those safety electronics off the road.

I've got a neighbor on a corner lot who only cuts his grass every couple of weeks and blows the clippings into the street. I always felt that if you counted on tech to save you, you better buy good gear first (and wear it).
