Re: parking on sidewalk

First and only post.

I think it likely that he parks his Superhawk in a great many places I might find inappropriate, but that is just a guess as to his motivation to create a forum account for just one post.

Safe Travels and polite parking,

Re: Riding Motorcycles When You Have Young Kids At Home....

Sigh .... you still don't get it. Obtuse? I am not arguing what is or is not controversial, I am clearly saying that their need be no controversy if we simple respect the right of each man to make such decisions for himself. How many different responses you get to your videos is of no consequence. H...

Re: I am a leaf on the wind!

Tuesday November 8, 2016 : Miles 36380 I order both a set of Barkbusters hand guards, and more importantly, a Kaoko throttle lock for my DL650A. These are both bike specific products, that is there is a need to order a version designed to fit on the make and model of the bike on which they are going...

Re: Riding Motorcycles When You Have Young Kids At Home....

I reject the assertion that it is a controversial issue. Safe Travels, Richard Hi- It's not a matter of opinion, Richard. I've made 23 videos so far, and this one has the most comments and feedback by an exponential amount - 7x, to be exact. That, by definition, makes it a controversial issue. -MKL...

Re: I am a leaf on the wind!

Tuesday October 23, 2016 : Miles 34294 I rode out to West Texas this weekend to experience TX 118 between Kent on I-10 and Fort Davis. As far as riding in Texas, this is an excellent rode through the Davis mountains with lots of twisting and useless ups and down on generally good pavement. Yes, ther...

I would consider Moto GP riders to have significant skills. A few quotes about traction control with attribution to Cycle World; Nicky Hayden: “With the bikes we are riding now, you need some electronics. Consider 270 hp! The level is so high that you cannot ride without traction control, but I woul...

Re: 2017 Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight 107/114 Engines - Coolness Factor = 68.1%

Horsepower data, new H-D engines, currently lack.

Yoda says when you can't brag about your horsepower, focus attention on your torque. Horsepower is not everything, torque even less so.

The Sevinas are the current leader in the lumens arms race and will provide the owner with a massive ego boost. Perfect for completely blinding all on-cum...
