Funny ass old man right there!

Jason Pridmore stated last year when I attended the STAR school that it's not a racetrack, it's a learning track.

You will garner far more instruction from riding on the track than you will at a fucking coffee shop.

This is how I ride, regardless of who's behind or in front of me. When I don't ride like that, I crash (just ask the Portland section!).
don't let Mark bs ya... he's a smooth, fast, mother...

ditto goes for jeff.

Anyone who says "we dont use our brakes when we ride" probably isnt anyone I would want to have to wait up for anyhow.


And Im gueesing it was just someone trying to make you feal like a newb because they are such an experienced PNW Street Rider!
now Jason is just a fking freak of nature who was born without the fear gene. (who the hell gets like top 5 the first race they're ever in?!?!)

i do however ride my own ride and have a damn fine time doing it. i wont lie, i have had a close call or two when i my concentration broke at the wrong time. but i learned from it, refocused and powered on. i appreciate the comments from everyone especially stringcheese who knows the roads im speaking of and Jason D seeing as he has a OMRRA # means alot.

sounds like this is a semi hot topic, continue on!
it's (imho) more a question of context... if I'm cruising say 60-65ish on a road with 20-30 mph corners (posted speed) ...think ranger station... I wont really use my brakes, maybe a downshift or a slight roll-off to set up and then in. (but I'm slow remember) If I'm riding with the above guys when they're taking it easy ( which means I'm at 80ish% and their at 50-60 )
then I do dust the brakes to bleed off a bit more speed cuz I can't carry as much corner speed as they can.

again (imho) both are correct, just depends a bit on the situation.

"The Pace" is about staying ahaead of the motorcycle. Back in the goodle' days, you could see Ienatsch and crew on Ortega hiway every now and then. Drama-free speed, on rails.

People who are on famiiliar roads who can do "the pace" are hard to keep up with. Lack of drama is not a squidly value, I guess.

Nope Cyndy, no brakes for you! I dont think they even have them on those fancy orange bikes like you ride?

"The Pace" is a classic piece of moto writing. Some of you seriously don't get it?

Nope. Not at all. Please enlighten me with a 500 word essay on the subject.

I just try to do the pace of the person ahead of me...that way I don't have to think too much.

Fairly sure you're not being serious.

Having met you, I'm also sure that if Ienatsch can't make it clear, I'd have zero chance of doing so.

That people don't get this is beyond me, but then I guess I could be missing the in-crowd jokes.

THE PACE
The Pace focuses on bike control and de-emphasizes outright speed. Full-throttle acceleration and last minute braking aren't part of the program, effectively eliminating the two most common single-bike accident scenarios in sport riding. Cornering momentum is the name of the game, stressing strong, forceful inputs at the handlebar to place the bike correctly at the entrance of the turn and get it flicked in with little wasted time and distance. Since the throttle wasn't slammed open at the exit of the last corner, the next corner doesn't require much, if any, braking. It isn't uncommon to ride with our group and not see a brake light flash all morning.

I think the "no brakes" thing was taken a little too literally. The throttle works both ways obviously, and there's no reason to go 100 mph down the straits. Go down the straits at a reasonable speed, and you can usually set your corner speed by simply rolling off the throttle. Obviously, if there's a 10 mph downhill hairpin on a 55 mph country road, then use the fricken brakes! This thread got stupid, fast.
