He got stickers or complete bodywork from Europe. Or maybe he imported the entire bike. Across the sea the CBR900 to the current 1000 are called the FireBlade.

Our Honda Superhawk is called the Firestorm.

I have a seriously funny Canadian joke here, but it's political... so, alas, I will keep my mouth shut and not risk the Banhammer of Doom.

Edit: Okay, it's not really that funny. Maybe slightly amusing.

We Canucks have a pretty good sense of humour so go on and tell it. I think you are going to get far less reaction then if you tell a HD joke..........

Hypothetically, the joke would have been: he has to be Canadian since he's leaning left.

Which could be taken as a political joke. But since I only hypothetically told the joke, maybe I won't get banned.

See, it wasn't really very funny. I've spent more effort than it was worth, I'm sure. But there you go. It cracked me up.

Charge them with a thought crime. We think you might, maybe have a remote chance of crashing so THAT'S CRIMINAL!!!

Not a Harley so they won't lay 'er down

Ah, I forgot. Only HD riders lay 'er down.

Maybe "criminal" was the wrong word, but if that little girl was riding in the back of a pickup truck, the police would ticket the driver. Different standards, I know.

I just can't fathom a parent putting their child at risk, albeit a "remote chance" of risk, of severe physical harm if they do go down.

Maybe I'm thinking about this wrong.

I believe you are thinking right BUT, it shouldn't be criminal.

Heck When I (we?) were her age there really wasn't riding gear.

Not bad. As a Canuck who prefers leaning to the right, it actually makes me smile..................

The first time I jumped on a Suzuki 80cc bike, I was probably wearing sneakers and jeans and a t-shirt. Probably a KISS t-shirt. (Hey, it was the 70s). And that little Suzuki would zip along the gravel roads of my neighborhood pretty quick.

Excuse me... I'm gonna have to go talk to my parents about that!!!
