I knew those guys had to go to school to be a "biker".
Every one was trying to say it's in the owner's manual, but I say no :angry7: you have to take a class to learn how to be a "biker".
He is joking...isn't he?
I'm just not quite sure.
Motorcycling's version of Poe's law. I'm pretty sure he was trying to be funny.
Good God I hope he is kidding. Lots of subtle jokes in this......
If you're not sure whether he is joking or not, you might be a biker.
I think it was his way of making fun of wannabe bikers because he was born a biker. I found it pretty damn funny when he was showing how to shift and practicing without a bike. If you watch Twist of the Wrist II there's a scene near the end where Keith is showing the squids how to blip the throttle while down shifting and releasing the clutch. He has the squid "air" practicing it. Keep practicing, you'll have it in no time!
I do believe he's serious. In his braking video, he states that the majority of your braking power comes from the front. That is unusual for someone on an HD, where a maximum braking effort is usually described as "I had to lay' er down."
I do not know where you get these slanderous lies sir, but you have the worst case of "Harley envy" I have ever seen.
Looking through this "Dudes" you tube list, I think he is being somewhat serious.
I think Kieth will be just fine.
No envy here. When do you wish to claim the beer I owe you?
I am going to be tied up (Figuratively) for the next couple weeks (Family stuff, Mom's 80th BD to plan).
How about a week from Tuesday we meet at Ava's for a coffee instead?
My brain needs date and time, but otherwise yer on!
September 25th say 6:30ish?
Oh gawd! Do you know any good 12 step programs I can check into?
I'm sorry to say, no there isn't.
You need to go to your nearest Harley dealer and buy your next bike.
Going over the mountain today with my family so we could take my dad (hes visiting for a couple of weeks) to Leavenworth, I let a bunch of harleys get past me. Since I'm a rider and it sucks to get stuck behind a cage on a sweet mountain road, i thought I'd be a nice guy and hey...I'll pull over a bit and slow down so the whole group of them can get by safely and go have fun.
About 20 miles later they were still only about a half a wobbly curve in front of me. So I start shit talking hardly ablesons. My wife promptly starts shit talking me telling me it's only a matter of time until I can't fold up my legs onto a sportbike and will one day find my smug ass sitting on a Harley.
But that day is not today!
It's the rider more then the bike in that case, a Harley can handle.
It like I alway say, you sportbike riders are all Harley riders in Training.
I just always assumed they were too busy fiddling with the chrome espresso maker to ride.:nana
