Try driving an 80,000 truck down a mountain uneducated you'de be in the same plan ahead by gearing down and applying the jake brakes.

The key to riding these things SAFELY is to ride like you are invisible and give yourself PLENTY of braking distance. We also reccomend over and over again use a STEEL framed bike alluminum is likely to crack. The bikes with a front fender need to be reinforced so they don't fold down on the tire and face-plant you. I also reccomend taking the back way around like the loading dock side behind wal-mart ect. We have lots of riders here on this forum who have never been hurt riding I for one rode all around Dallas Tx. If after reading all this you still get hurt sue phone number is BR549 tell em Junior sent ya!
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
