I think he is married to that biker lady that does the youtube advice videos... I get what he was trying to do,and it could have been funny. but it came off to me as if he was under informed.

There are some bike specific oddities and contradictions though. Like why is the rear shock for my medium sized bike more expensive then all four shocks on my full size truck?

Why do we lane split between cars and not on the shoulder?

How is it that you can go to a BMW, KLR or Harley rally with a thousand of the same type bike, and no two are the same?
I mean who makes all those after market parts and why do we think them to be smarter the engineers that built our bikes.

Ape hangers?? four words here.. June Bug Arm Pit. Yikes!!

....... anyone?

Meh, he tried to do a humorous piece, but it fell on it's face.

More Blah, blah, blah.

Sad thing is; asshat probably got 50c per word to knock that 30 minute piece of shite together.
