    And I'll have to AGREE with your disagreement. What she said made a lot of sense, and more power to her on her journey. :clap

    I'll leave the original grumbly post up for posterity. Just a kneejerk reaction to remembering the flamefest surrounding the Vid Lady...

    Yup. Clearly it is a LITTLE smokey. If on the gas it would A LOT smokey.

    A good training technique. Following one, if you see the road covered in smoke, get on the gas, if it disappears, get on the brakes.

    Fail. Seat and handlebar position requires rearsets. Guess he ran out of Ebay money after the Thailand shocks and "cafe" seat.

    Or he's mid build, or has decided the bike feels good he doesn't want them.
    You speak with a lot of authority for somebody who I'm assuming has never ridden that bike.

    You the cafe police?

    Kept mids on my cafe build. It was a lot more comfortable that way.

    Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy.
