Do you guys in the US like to GYKD on the roads other than doing it on track days? is it the same as here in the UK where once you can do it it's a real feel good factor[8D]

I think it is pretty dangerous to be draging knees on the street, UNLESS you ride a road slowly first to be sure of traction and conditions. I would also hope you are riding with a friend to find you if you go off.

Those of us who do, always check out the road conditions first and make sure the tyres are warmed to temperature.
Over here it is popular to practice on "roundabouts" ( junction intersections ).
It looks the nuts when you use titanium knee sliders at night.
If you are gonna ride fast and turn quick GYKD is inevitable if you want to be quick.
But I do prefere to leave the GYKD for track days..........although hanging off is a real rush especially if you pop up the front end out of a turn.........yeeeeeeeeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaa

Nice pic.

But on this board, we like to whore our track pics in other riders' track reports. Check out the track forum, find a thread, and post that pic.
