Obviously there are complete idiots everywhere, but the guys buying their first sportbike are probably a little more likely to be fuckwits than average.
Too bad they don't make them anymore...frown.gif

This only works for some of us.

Yup, I'd say that rider has a big problem.

What kind do you have? I have an XB9SX, but I learned on a Blast.

Nice! I'd love to pick up another buell - another tuber, an xb9 or an 1125.
