Motorcycling is such a noble sport. It gives the runts a natural advantage.

Immaterial. I'm small, but fat and still slow. However, there's hardly a car made that I can't sit comfortably in the back seat.

What?
1)What is cool about a bike modified in such a way that it less capable than before it was monkeyed with?

2) He's a dickbag who crashed because he is more concerned with trying to be cool than learning how to ride a bike and earning my respect with good motorcycle control skills.

3) Yeah, swearing makes him look so intelligent.

This is the kind of guy who will later brag "Nah I had to lay 'er down so I didn't crash."

Here's a guy, on the same brand and model of bike unmodified, showing us how it's done.

I hate those videos, and those guys. They make me feel like I should still be on a Big Wheel.

It's easier when you don't have to pay for it if you bin it.

Sometimes, they'll even send you to remedial training. I crashed an official government vehicle, and was "punished" by being sent to a 5 day Emergency Vehicle Operations course taught by one of the local Sheriff's Dept. I was wondering when I could crash another and get sent back.

Yup, that's what I love about it,

Although it does make stopping a bit more tricky but then who ever wants to stop?

Motorcycle policemen are born with a HD key in their mouth. HD marketing selects new babies they want and implants that key tag into the sub conscience.

If Ducati or Triumph did that we would be drooling over the riding skills of them instead.
