Wow, what was he thinking walking the bike without having the pillion rider get off first?

Not Me!!! I wait for the first few to pass, then roll the throttle so I can split their group up. I don't let the rest of them past me, even if my passenger is scared shitless.

The same goes for stretched Busa's. It'll give them something to talk about at their next stop.

No sportbike out there can keep up with my KLR in the twisties!!!
