I know at least a couple guys who would disagree with you.... Hayden and Edwards. Both gave awesome examples of a knee save the same weekend.

Gotta' be. No way two different people would buy/use those same ugly-ass saddlebags. And the same pair of white socks.

It's actually a good skill to have, imho. Go practice somewhere straight and obviously no traffic, then work your way up to being able to maneuver the bike. It's really nice to be able to wiggle the right hand every now and again on a long ride. And you're exactly right that it's not so easy at first.

Looks like the bike has seen some miles tho... and maybe the riders.
