Martial Artists are normally Bikers???????
« on: June 10, 2011, 12:36:48 PM »

Here in Malaysia, one of the most common sight is that most of Martial Artists are bikers. Means they ride heavy bikes, going more than 200 ++km/h.

I'm not promoting anything bad, or going more than the speed limit, just having something to ponder on.

Do they really love superbikes?

Or by Karate, they learn to sharpen their reflexes?

p/s : I, myself do own a superbike.
hehe. :P

I've known several who own bikes but it's far from the norm around here. I  would have thought a few more would have been cyclists but you do have to be very careful of that shortening your tendons.

I cycle 30 miles everyday to and from work. Having started Karate six weeks ago, I am now not getting home until after 9PM. So I am going to get a motorbike (or moped). I don't think a 125cc bike will make me a biker though!

A decision made after Fraser's advice a couple of weeks ago about the tendons!

Should have learned to drive when I was younger!

I said it was *really* important to stretch your tendons whenever you cycle as it isn't a full range of movement it shortens them, the exercise is still good for you!

Best of luck with the motorbike though, it just means you'll have to do more training instead, and you'll have more time for it too ! :D
