Yep, like I said, anticountersteering:

Ain't no "click" on the rear shocks!

That here is an FLHTCU with Air Shocks. Ya gotta pump 'em up. And you don't counter steer through the turn silly man... Only to start the turn.

He is likely counter steering a little to get his hard parts off the pavement. (What he should be doing)

There is no place in the US you can ride hard enough to wear off the foot pegs, and make the tires look like you have been to a track day and your moving average speed was only 35 mph! And do it for days on end, with out retracing your steps.
Look closely at a map of Northern CA. Concentrate on the area north of San Francisco and west of I-5. Click down 'til you can see the little squiggly lines. I've not been to Europe, but I think that this area rivals their best.

i have a friend that rode that area, and has ridden with me in Europe and he agrees it is a great area, and some of the roads do rival some in Europe. I hope to join him in a year or two and ride the area.

Although quality might rival, quantity is at a deficit for sure, but as others mentioned, getting there is easier.

How the f**k can you make the comparison if you've never been there?

I HAVE been to the area North of San Francisco and West of I-5. It's pretty good (better than a lot of vaunted roads in the Eastern US IMO,) but it's not as good as the best in the Rockies, it doesn't rival the better parts of Europe, and its not even close to the Alps.

Am I the only one who is confused at how we got on the topic of "my roads are cooler than your roads"?

This has a slight scent of "my dad can beat up your dad".

I think we should get back to posting pictures of folks doing dumb shit in the Gap.
