You missed "countersteering"...

wow...I thought I was usually pretty good at spotting stuff. I totally missed all of that in this one. I must be getting young.

So what we are saying is that we need to perform a complete NDE of the area that has obvious indications. Once we get down to the root we will conduct additional PT/MT examinations.

The Diavel is one of the most uncomfortable bikes I've ever sat on.
I felt like a chimp humping a coconut...

Absolutely loved the ergos of the Diavel when I rode it during a Ducati experience day. Could stand to have the pegs lowered, but that's all I can think of off hand. Then again, maybe I was distracted by how awesome the engine is and wasn't paying any attention to how uncomfortable I was.

I've never owned a hog, but rented a Dyna in Florida a couple years ago (the rental place had sold both of their BMWs due to lack of use) and used the passenger pegs floorboards more than the main ones.

I have a Beadrider, so no squeezing of farts; I just rip'em amongst the beads. No danger from the g/f either; she has her own bike, and if I can smell rotten eggs, I'm following too close!

Dittos. At first I thought the Diavel was fugly. Then I rode it, and I found myself strangely aroused. Cool bike, indeed.
