This was a crappy summer here in Québec, Canada, TONS of rain :pissed:

Even if it rained I rode the bike every day to work, and had a lot of learning experiences.

My 02 954, was fitted with some bt-020 rear, even if the tire scared me from day one for it is a sport touring tire, it was pretty sticky when warm, but when cold they where bad real bad. Normal riding perfect, agressive riding maybe, crazy mofo it's a nono... good millage.

I also had a lot of practice in a deserted industrial park, I want to be able to ride my bike on one weel, in 2 years of practice I cannot keep the weel up that much(no falling permitted for I care a lot for my but). I can lift the front up pretty high at any speeds from start to 110 m/h(no cluching permitted for I care a lot for my baby). Do not want to sound like a crazy mofo in the streets, it is not the case, in fact I really like the feeling of acceleration, and to me that is the top. Acceleration weelies :down:

Even if the rain is not fun for it is wet and reduces my vision a lot, it makes everything more challenging. The rain puts your sorry ass on the ground if you do not learn to be smouth, I needed to learn that a lot!!!!!

Anyhow I survived my second year of riding a powerful bike and realise now how I would be a better rider now if I had started with a less powerfull bike.

I learned that riding a bike like I wish I could ride a bike will take me years of practice, no bike as powerfull and advanced as it may be will make me a better rider, only safe practice will.

Well as I said I am happy to be back and really hope everybody here survived and learned, and had tons of fun. :cheers:
