Um, gee, well thanks for sharing, Mike. Next week, Mike's going to fill us in on how to safely refuel that motorcycle without blowing up the bike, the gas station, or yourself.
I think they should disconnect the back brake for the MSF class and then the 1st 3 months of ownership. My unnamed riding pal STILL uses only the back brake, and this is after having put his Road King into a guard rail after entering an exit ramp a little too hot. Every time I ride behind him I want to scream....My dad insisted I learn to stop with the front brake, I'm glad he did. This was back in the cable operated drum brake days so locking the wheel wasn't as much an issue as now. When I started street riding I had to learn to modulate it a little.
No, this would be the guy with the brand new Ultra that falls over when negotiating turns of greater than 90 degrees.That wouldn't be the same friend that owns an unwashed Conni and can't tell when 3 of his riding partners actually pull off an exit to the designated stop location- would it? I knew he was Dangerous Dan when I first laid eyes on him. ;-)
It couldn't hurt, now that you mention it. I'll read it first...never too old to trick a dog teacher.He needs a Motorman Skills book for his birthday does he?
