Yup. Clearly it is a LITTLE smokey. If on the gas it would A LOT smokey.

A good training technique. Following one, if you see the road covered in smoke, get on the gas, if it disappears, get on the brakes.

Or he's mid build, or has decided the bike feels good he doesn't want them.
You speak with a lot of authority for somebody who I'm assuming has never ridden that bike.

Kept mids on my cafe build. It was a lot more comfortable that way.

I know where he was from but due to the many fires each year in Montana we got the full Smokey dose at an early age. Maybe that's why we got the smoky dose at such an early age as well.
