I'm within a mile from my garage cruising along at about 45mph coming up on only my second stop sign and wouldn't ya know it. A guy in a SUV, staring right at me mind you, pulls right out in front of me and I lock up the brakes and skid within two feet of his rear end. Thank the lord for the skills I've learned over the past 40 years of riding/racing and a pair of new brake pads!!!
Just installed new brake pads on the rear. No more draggin my boots to stop

Oh those Hoppo Hands are nothing new, they've been around for a long time and yes they are legal.

I gotta say, if the riding conditions warrant those monsters attached to the front of the bike, those are conditions I aint riding in . If electric gloves combined with my hanguards aren't enough, then its too cold to ride
4 wheels and a heater has its place

Whoa.... What??? Fritz and I go way back. FUCK, maybe he's hated me this whole time. DAMN, I was hoping there was one human that didn't hate me. Reality is a bitch
