    I'm not selling anything, I'm not promoting anything... but Ken Condon asked me to cover for him this coming Saturday January 26th at Wilkins Harley Davidson in Barre, VT and I'm pretty damn excited about it.

    If you're around & wanna come heckle me, I'll gladly take your jeers and dodge your rotten tomatoes.

    Rule number 1 of riding motorcycles: have fun!

    Most Harley riders look like they’re constipated, so maybe you could re-emphasize that. Then again, it’s vermont, and I feel like people are a little nicer up that way anyhow.
    Have fun pets, let us know how it went.

    Well so much for the hope that one day a sport bike rider can shatter that impossible glass ceiling of Harley riders thinking we're "kind of gay."

    Harley riders?! Those guys are chumps!

    Good luck. Try to emphasize that front brake usage. Didn't realize that stereotype was really a thing until I seen it first hand.

    Maybe you'll get to hear their stores about the time they "had to lay her down"

    As with most stereotypes, all things are not as they seem. For anyone who has ridden a 750lbs harley the rear brake is quite effective in stopping the beast! And actually helps stabilize the bike in conjunction with the front,when needing to stop quickly. And my goatee is nice and trim thanks!

    Never said to not use the front.. And may have under estimated the weight of my harley! Just saying I was surprised how effective the rear brake on the Harley is. May have more to do with the weight distribution and the fact harley brakes suck compared to other brands!

    The brake thing is totally true. Ejlemo's neighbor had a chopper that he didn't even know it had a front brake.

    I rode my friend's harley on st croix last year. The front rotor was really warped and would shutter bad everytime I used it. Mentioned it to my friend, he didn't think it was an issue because he never used the front brake.

    Re: Shameless self promotion approved by no one... I'm giving a riding seminar Satur

    Pete, you could set up cones in the parking lot and just have them practice "laying it down". Lol

    The rest of the seminar can cover:
    1. How to resist waving at non harley riders
    2. How to go to great motorcycle riding roads (such as deals gap) and totally block the flow of traffic riding 30mph and then buy a shirt claiming "taming" of said dragon.
    3. How drinking and driving is okay because at least your in a car and not on your bike.
    4. How to carry weapons on your bike to throw at cars that you get into an altercation with.
    5. How to properly size a rear seat so it's totally too small for the fat ass woman that will definitely be riding it.
    6. Shirt buying seminar. The answer is always "if you can read this... the bitch fell off".

    Re: Shameless self promotion approved by no one... I'm giving a riding seminar Satur

    Does woodcraft make floor controls? They are not triple clamps they are triple trees. Can you run a stage 2 kit in super sport?

    Cop friend of mine who rides sport bikes called to a single vericle Harley crash. Long black skid mark from the back tire. He tells the guy he must not know how to ride or he would have used some front brake. Of course similar story from a sport bike rider here in RI who died after a long rear tire skid and blew a corner so Iím being somewhat stereotypical of HD riders.

    I do find they have some good looking bikes and I have been interested in a couple. A friend who loves flat track and the former V&H road race series bought the XR1000R or whatever it was. Wanted to like it but in stock form it didnít impress him so he sold it.

    It's a little inaccurate, though. First off... harley guys don't wear full face helmets. Second, where was his bandana on his head when he took his helmet off? Everybody knows it's the bandana that does all the real protection.

    I thought I threw my zx6r away at nyst. I guess I really laid it down. I thought Malcom Stewart was riding well this season but he has a season ending lay down.
