I didn't even think I braked that hard, but just like our muscle bound hero, I was down and sliding before I knew it.
You gotta warm up the front tire's rubber for good stops.

I used to lock up my ZX-7R's front wheel by doing stupid stuff early on a ride, or even right after a minor break on a race course. Never lost it or dumped it from locking it up though... just gotta be really fast to let off of the front brake, then get back on it, when it starts to skid.

Oh man, he's got it all except I don't see a gremlin bell.
Car tire check
no front brake check
Darla Bandana on the forks check

And that hammer should have some good grill marks by the end of the day

are you capable of speaking in person without being a smartass? that rider did an outstanding job of assesing and reaction in a fraction of a second. it would be high praise indeed if you could do as well.

He was pointing out the fact that it was a cruiser on the dragon and therefore most likely traveling at a slow speed.

Bunch of Bungees I have learned are a dangerous way to secure a load. (Used them many times as I say this)

Probably carries it with the fantasy of busting a mirror off a car when it does something to offend him.


The bandana is to help keep dirt and gravel from flying up into the riders face/ sandblasting the headlight. I tend to use derogatory language to describe such a thing, but all I'm gonna say here is that a fender looks better, and works better then a bandana.

But to answer your question farmerstfu, no, he's not capable of not being a smartass.

Yep. It's called a traffic cop. I've heard lots of stories of people hanging a hammer, or even a shortened ax handle somewhere on the bike to be able to beat a car's fender if they are trying to 'lane change' in to them...as if your reaction time would be quick enough to use it...

This guy looks like he is having a lot of fun, and seems to be riding well, so no fail here.



How does he stop or shift this thing without a clutch?
