If its that cold, why not wear a FF helmet?! (I'm assuming he built it to ride in the cold despite the short sleeves he has on now)

IDK either, but it happens. I've gone to pass cars on the moto and had em try to 'race' me.

It's a testosterone thingie. Goes with the territory.

Passing a Cruiser on a bicycle is hilarious, on anything else, not so much.

I do.
My current ride (Black KTM 950 is know as the tie-fighter, the silver R1150GS was the Millenium Falcon, the old copper colored R75/6 was the land speeder, the orange '97 F650 was the X-wing.)
I'm saving my pennies for the Tardis now.

Last time I was out on my Superduke I was passed by 2 Harleys. One on a four lane stretch and the other on a looong straight.

I have to stay close to the speed limit, one more speeding ticket and I have no license.

I won't race anyone on the street, for any reason. I've been there and done that when I had hot rods.
Had people wreck while I was racing them, not gonna happen again.
