I think it's really cool that you guys did this (practice). I did it some when I first got the bike in 2011. I need to do it some more.

Makes it even better if you have someone to practice with

Wise

I ride over 1000 miles a month weather permitting, but even then I know the value of practicing low speed and evasive maneuvers. I commend you for doing so.

I would love to do it all again.

I also want to drag against your bike too. I hit the rev limiter enough with crappy parts and nothing blew up, I think it is ready.
