    Never give up. If you give up, you'll lose. If you don't give up, you might win.

    Without rear sets that has to be uncomfortable to ride. Straight pipes, no back pressure, loss of power and hard on exhaust valves. Amazing what we called brakes back in the day!

    Looks cool sitting in front of the cafe though.

    Skill is what keeps you on two wheels.

    Situational awareness combined with skill is what keeps you out of harm's way.

    ATGATT combined with Situational Awareness and Skill means you might live to ride another day when that deer runs into your bike or that drunk blows through that stop sign.
