No shit Sherlock.
On ADVrider they are assless chaps.
sw mn. is pretty flat and the roads tend to be straight. also the far north west. the rest of the state has lots of twisty roads. 10,000 lakes and they're not square! I'd personally rank mn. about seventh for the best riding in the lower 48 states.
I haven't ridden all of MN, but lots of MN riders come to WI to ride good roads. MN sucks donkey balls for decent roads with curves and elevation change from what I can find.
CA, NC, TN, WV, VA, WA, OR, MD, PA and WI all eat MN for roads.
Organ transplant delivery couriers should not drift in corners. Cooler contents will "slosh".
(even on KTMs)
come spring shoot me a PM and I'll give you a tour of lake country, give you a private campsite at our place too, also remember mn. has the north shore and the river road,(yeah i know so does wis.!) they area around Caladonia is really good also.
Sorry to go all "texty" again, but what's really impressive is that it's the throttle hand. If I tried that on my Vee, I think it would stand up and take me into the weeds.
I'm going to try it and see what effect engine braking has on my line.
FarmerStu - sounds great to me! Another excuse to go explore.
Believe that is the passenger's hand, not the rider's hand.
Probably a brake slide more than a power drift. Right toe is tucked in tight like on the rear brake.
It is, I just happen to be driving by as he was doing lap after lap in front of the photo person.
He must have been shopping for a new desktop photo
Which means someone's new heart might be splattered all over when he high-sides :eek1
but he's too upright to be deep in a slide, and he's too centered for it to be transitioning to a high-side, so I dunno... That's a lot of lever to catapult you if you DO go over...
I'm also betting that it's a six pack of his favorite adult beverage.
Fail! What is the point of hanging your butt off the bike if you're going to crawl your torso back to the center of the bike? If you want to hang off, hang off!
For our enjoyment?
Think of her arm length, and the limitations that entails, on the size of the bike she is on with the reach to the clip-ons she must make.
That may be about as much as she can do.
I have probably seen truck tires blow maybe twice in all my years of riding and driving..... until this past week. On the bike riding SE on Hwy 78 to check out the King's birthplace in Tupelo I had not one but two 18 wheeler rt rear trailer tires blow and disintegrate as I was about to pass them. This happened within a 5 min span time. Luckily my buddy and I managed to dodge the flying debris but WTH. We were fortunate that they were on the right side of the truck as we approached in the left lane. Certainly put us on high alert for the rest of the ride.
