    The loops get stuck on the shifter and you tip over like a cartoon. :muutt

    (for those who don't run with a training wheel that is...)

    But as anybody who has served in the military knows, you always tuck your laces in.:deal

    I think with the trendy popularity of HDs. You get that casual kind of scared rider. I live 30 minutes from suburbia and on the weekend the riding I see from a lot of HD riders sucks especial when there wife is on her own bike. And I just putting around on my little 650 gs(which is for sale).yes they are mountain roads but the supported limit is 55. They are doing lime 35 or 40. I don't see it from the crotch rockets or the gs style riders.

    What is wrong with courtesy - and sharing the road?

    Advanced riders here in the UK are taught that you should pull over for people who want to ride faster than you, even if they are exceeding the speed limit. By blocking them you are probably raising their blood pressure and encouraging them to do something dangerous - in which case you are an accessory in the moral sense.
    I believe that not pulling over to let a faster rider through is bad manners - whether you are on a Goldwing at 15mph or mounted on a Yamaha R1 doing 110mph.

    I am not in any way condoning breaking the speed limit or treating the highway like a racetrack.

    Don't laugh, this was the cause of my first "down" 30 minutes after I left the dealer on my brand new Suzuki TS50X

    Incredibly proud 16 year old (un) gracefully topples over at a set of traffic lights in front of about 30 witnesses. :mad:

    Courtesy combined with common sense. Sad we can't all get on the bandwagon and let everyone just go at their own pace. Whether you agree with said pace or not.
