    He has a camera on the back of his bobber. Wonder if he posted on Utube?

    It's interesting. I'd do it again but not if it was my only bike.

    Balls of your feet not on the pegs, jeans instead of real riding pants (Draggin jeans are not real riding pants), visor style helmet on the street causes head turbulance, get your ass off the seat and lean the body more and bike less!:deal

    How was that?:lol3

    I asked, didn't I :lol3

    Draggin' jeans have saved my skin on two separate occasions, and I've got knee pads on underneath.
    The Variant doesn't pull as bad as you might think, actually.
    My butt's off the seat, but I don't have to hang off like a GP rider in the S's in that section.

    My only real fail of the week was getting a wheelie ticket in TN...

    Does your backpack have anything in it you wouldn't want to fall on? Tools for example?

    LOL... My first though on your pic was that the only fail is the position of your foot on the peg and perhaps that you should move your body more to the inside of the corner. I'm surprised you haven't made a flat spot on the edge of your boot already.

    Looks like you're having a blast. No fail there!!!

    There's a low-miles one for sale at Touring Sports in Greenville, SC, but they're asking more than I paid for mine new :deal

    My inside foot is on the ball, and I've got some worn spots on the sliders on the Gaerne's, but that's from leg-out in the insane tight stuff.

    Here's another:

    Wrenches in a nylon bag, horizontal in the bottom of the backpack. Rolled on them plenty of times. That backpack's got more road rash than most of my other gear... :rofl

    Inside foot on the ball of your foot. Outside foot on the arch. I feel I can push harder with my outside foot if it's on the arch. Especially on the SMs.
