Expert on deviation are you?

you are the genius, you tell him and take the credit as well.

Your call, can you not back it

Mmm seems like a fair comment as long as it aims at the super noisy models

I wear a flip-face helmet,and I think I have heard concerns that if you have the face up and catch something with it, the leverage could injure your neck. The manual recommends not riding with it up.

A Hardly Ableson rider clearly. Pity the fashion victim.

You may enjoy this, a millennial putting the boot in, and he's not wrong.

A Harley chunder-blatted past me yesterday on the motorway with his stylish open faced lid, shorts flapping in the wind. A great deal of noise and not a lot of acceleration.

Interesting, thanks ronnie. Not easy selling bikes to generations who would rather sit inside staring at a screen.

O they are buying them, just not those sad status symbols.

A friend's wife bought a new KTM200 to commute to work. Slid on a rail crossing and dropped it on her first day. Never rode it again.

Bugger, that's terrible, that poor little bike.

What makes you think that?

(A layman can detect deviation)

Lol. She liked the 'idea' of riding, but not the reality. I think the KTM went back to the shop she bought it from with some fairing scratches.

The old classic of pride coming before a fall then ;)

mrfxit, Dec 22, 8:50am
It's a very proportional thing.
The bigger the ego & pride = the more the fall hurts.

And if something as big as a Harley falls on you, it's gonna hurt. A mate hit a ditch at 40km/h on his hog and ended up under his bike, leg broken in two places.
