My bride and I went for a nice Saturday ride and had a wonderful day.
Well ? Getting close to home I encountered a car pulling a boat, and he was holding up traffic in the worst way. Well I turned a corner and this slow poke got the best of me, I dropped her down a gear and poured the coal to her........Whoa !.... :eek: Did you know you can raise the front end like that ?........LOL Wow ! The things that came out of my bride's mouth....whew! Suuuure did get kinda loud in my ears.........LOL
I guess I better not do that again....... :)

I just thought I would pass that along so my fellow riders would n't make a mistake like I did........ :wink:

That guy goes high enough that sparks are flying out the back. So what's sparkin'? Trailer hitch? It doesn't look like he gets pipes.

I lifted my front wheel up something over a foot without trying about a month ago. I was two up but my passenger barely broke over 110 while I'm about triple that so it wasn't like she made us tail heavy. :oops: We were riding with another couple and the other rider had zipped away rather quickly so I thought I'd do the same when I pulled next to him. I downshifted and twisted the throttle. :) Up came the front wheel. :shock: Three of the four of us thought I'd done it on purpose. :? :) :D

Looks and sounds like the right tailpipe, hmmmm....... no wonder the tail section of it is replaceable. :twisted: :shock: :wink: 8)

I am sure glad I would never check the balance of the bike by playing unicycle, nope not me, nobody saw me , I didn't do it ( and I have my wifes hand prints in my back to prove it. :shock:

Mike, I can just hear her now, just no sense of fun or humor....... oh, wait, Sherry must have a sense of humor, she married you!! :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: (I know Jen had to have a sense of humor to marry me!!!!)
