    You know one of those decreasing radius corners on the Gap startled the shit out of him, he's pointed to the outside of the corner in frame one.

    That was me a week or so ago. I flew to Seattle and rode it home to NY. I have a thread in ride reports. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=781149
    And yes, I do have a few other bikes in the garage. I've ridden my VF1000R and FJR through those turns at a much better clip. Flying the chair actually was slower than if I had leaned and powered through. I did it for the picture and the coffee cup I ordered. And yeah, I did have a shit eating grin on my face. :D

    So you flew the chair with a monkey (no offense to your wife) in it?

    Sorry to disappoint. Nope, Julie (#1Farkle on ADVRider) wasn't in it at the time. She draws the line at me doing that with her in it. :deal

    It is better than riding off in the back of an ambulance.

    Well look at that! A nice fat square tire like that will give more ground clearance to the bike when heeled over like that. Didn't consider that.
