Compensating for not having a 260-pound passenger on the back?

Almost looks like the bike is about to do some serious line crossing, almost as though he is going right for the bear.
Perhaps he just wants to pat it...

**edit. America. You fuckers are on the other side of the damn road. Like the tourist I met mid corner on The Great Ocean Road. Fuckin' tourists :lol

What's going on with the gatlings? The mufflers surely don't come like that from the factory

Compensating much?

So you are telling me that they rarely ever-ever rotate???

I just spent a week at the NC-TN area. The only way I could have passed more slow HDs is if I was working on an assembly line in Milwaukee.
