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.
