Have you ever.......

This can be anything you seen while out n about.

Yesterday I went to the campus to sell my unneeded books back (rip off). On my way I seen a guy on a 1000RR going about 35mph in a 45mph w/ some granny on his arse. At first I didnt think much of it, maybe he was just taking it easy. The further down the road we went the more I noticed this dude acted like he was skeered sh*tless. And was all jerky, not smooth at all, n did good to not stall it at the lights. When will novices learn to not get on more bike than they can handle? In this case dude needed a bicycle.

That's what the cops thought about me the other day on the semfiddy. The clutch has a much closer friction point to the grip than the 10. I pulled up at the stop sign by the poilce dept. About 4 cops standing around, and what do I do? You got it. Stalled it.

Adjust the cable maybe, fp?



Edit: actually, don't. having the clutch engage closer to the bar allows you to make better upshifts when riding hard... just get used to it, I guess?

lol at first when you said "he had a granny on his arse" the first thing i thought was some 90 yo biker chick on his passenger seat .


D00D will still to look cool to people oblivious to the ways of riding, but hes destined to never be a part of the "true" brotherhood of riders and cannot mingle with the road hugging cagers anymore... he is an outcast of society.

Not too sure on the cool part When I first spotted the guy, he was leaving at a redlight. All tucked and moving like a snail n he wasnt a small guy. My guess is about 6' - 6'2" 200+lbs.
