Don't worry, he doesn't use the front brake

She gets another piercing. I'm pretty sure it will not be here first.

I was at a skills course with some very very good instructors. One of the folks there listened and did very well in the course. I then overheard him quietly tell another participant that as they both rode HDs, It is best when in the mountains don't use the front brake... geez... guess they don't down shift either for braking, so they have to maintain a sub cage speed.

I was at Blue Ridge MC Campground at Cruso when a bunch for riders came down 276 to stay there. Seems the lead rider had lost his front brakes. Evidently he used them in a dragging manner all the way down and had boiled off his evidently low fluid.

I konw when I come down it at a quick pace (with others similar in style) yeah the front brake is touched, revs are high and the bike slows as you roll of the throttle and the grade and curves are handled without a lot of fanfare or extreme effort. Guess it is hard on the brakes and bike to lead a parade down a hill.

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes
Yeah!

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!

I wonder if she sits back there, looks at them spikes and wonders "what if?"

OTOH.....How about the blower on the bike! Spends big money and has shit for gear.
