The whole seriously cool black-leather-and-chrome effect is RUINED!!! Gaah! I wonder if he knows she's pulled her hoodie up like that? Could be grounds for a divorce.

You know, all sniping aside, at least these folks (all of them featured on this thread) are out there RIDING and not just sitting on their asses on a couch (or at a computer terminal ) somewhere wasting their lives away. Good on 'em!

Use the side stand. The hitch keeps the trailer upright. Nice rig and good to see him/her out riding.

Also, the goat horns are pointed at his left brachial artery.

The only experience I have had with linked brakes was on a Honda VTX. It was a horrible system.

I'm not saying all linked systems are bad. Some of them obviously work very well. However, I put linked brakes in the same category as automatic transmissions in cars. They may work, but they sure do take some of the fun and a whole lot of the control away from the pilot.

Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy...

It depends. On the GS the linking is front to rear. But if you use the rear brake only you get rear brake only. Works great for me.

From the duct tape on the left one, I would guess he has done this before.

No, not on a race track anyway. But I don't ride on the track much anymore and for the street the FJR's system is great and for on and off road the Tenere's system is great. I just take exception to the blanket statement that linked brakes suck.

over and out, back to regular Killboy fail programming....

He's Dutch. That explains most of it.
