A SQUID with some skills

https://www.facebook.com/worldlifest...2280147532121/

...from the Department of Don't Try This At Home

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Here's a vid featuring a guy carving with an ape-hangered Harley:

You guys are too funny..
The guy was having a hard time trying to stay on and lucky for him it finally threw him off.

Let me find you a skillful Harley rider for you to consider.
He is old and set in his ways.


Okay, it is not the same and this thread might have gotten a bit hi-jacked, but, it is fun none the less..

Well it makes for a cute video and all, but all it proves is that the guy on the Honda couldn't ride it.

A little searching for the quarter mile performance of a stock CBR1000RR turns up a 10 seconds flat at 141 MPH for a 2012 model.

I think the old guy on that POS Harley would have been "shut down" as they say..

Never underestimate old dudes. What they may lack in speed and skill, they more than make up for with craftiness and deceit.

Hey I'm an old dude myself. and I could have blown the doors off that other old guy with the Harley if I'd been on that CBR.. I think the guy in the video was just learning.
