    My motorcop friends say the only part that sucks about that job is when you on the bike all you do is work traffic. But, yes, that looks like a far more entertaining way to pass a work day than chained to this computer crunching numbers. Even if all you do is hand out tickets and direct traffic around crashes, at least you get to ride a sweet bike.

    Nope. There are plenty of follow up pics. They were going too damn slow to slide very far.

    Wow what a fu&k up that was. His insurance company is going to love him. I doubt your average paint shop would even try to match that CVO paint job. Everything would have to be special ordered from Harley. CHA-CHING

    I caught that, and I didn't mean harley/cruiser etc tires, I was leaning more towards sportbike tires, you know, the guys that are actually USING the whole tire. I can tell you how soft and sticky the edges of a Michelin Pilot Power 2CT are...
    And the contact patch on a bike runs much hotter than most auto street tires, as the contact pressure is higher on a bike.

    I think they meant the thing on the BACK of the bike.

    Sure they would. It's just paint.

    Might be cheaper to order the parts from Harley though.
