2018, the summer before I moved to Texas...
I went thru 3 sets of skid bolts under the foot pegs of my "F".. grade 10.9.. hardened.
I still 'hang-off' on my "F" as well. and still practice 'hanging off' when I can here.
and I still can pass them 'kids' on the 600 sport bikes thru the "S's.. on the back roads of Ohio...
so my ride stories... are not memories of old.... last Summer.
I am Young when I ride.. even if climbing off my "F" can sometimes cause a lot of pain.
hell, ask a few members over on the "CAFE' " they have rode behind me.. a few are half my age.
a VTX can carve a good curve.. you just have to know how..
as above.. I hang off,,, AND allow the foot pegs to fold back 45 degrees...''
I was forced to sell my 1000 Hurricane.. cause riding it 100 miles caused me to walk with duel canes for a week..
I have had 4 back operations... just to be able to walk. not from motorcycles.. to make that point CLEAR... work accident
<< 2017 >> was the last time I was 'ON" the Nelson Ledges sports car course..
aka Track Day. with my "F".
to be clear.. I was born in 1951...... so I am OLD.
. and 50 years as a mechanic has KILLED my hands/wrists...
