    Nothing like a bit of karma eh steelo, and served up reasonably well. I thought he would have copped it worse though and got pissed on at the end. I liked the music playing in the dash-cam vehicle too

    I deplore violence and road rage but this bit of Karma gave me a chuckle.
    One of the wags in the comment section even suggested
    "They beat him so bad, I bet even his drivers license picture swelled up."

    WTF
    me too steelo, don't hold with violence nor ridiculous rages.but.
    That was so funny, what a cockroach, just deserts comes to mind, while the old codger starts swinging the same rock which the assailant was swinging around.

    Friends this may be well known to many of you but the fellow makes it very clear and easy to understand how to park, mount / dismount and move your bike.
    Nice stable of adventure bikes there!!

    Thanks steelo. Found that video whilst searching adventure bike tips a few months back - some great tips which are applicable for cruisers as well as adventure bikes.

    Good video for short riders with adventure bikes.
    Not much of the mount/dismount technique is relevant to a cruiser with forward controls.
    Not many cruiser riders park in the dirt. Pretty basic looking for a reasonably level position for parking  and making sure the weight is on the side stand. Make sure your bike is in gear if there is any grade.

    Should be posted in the 'What is your other bike ?' section.

    Yeah, you’re right. Largely adventure bike flavoured. He admits that. Some good tips for tourer riders though. First time I rode the ultra I nearly popped out a little bit of colon out my anoose trying to stand it upright after parking on the side of the road. (Kick stand in gutter) Now I look carefully for an easy way in and out. I liked the idea of using power to move the bikes around and tourers have backrests and top boxes to negotiate getting on and off without scratching the panniers so using footboards helps when fully loaded. Yeah basic for sure. We do get new riders looking for guidance (oil, fuel, tyres, exhaust, suspension). It’s sure easier on a cruiser though.

    steelo, it really comes down ta experience, which is the doing it thing, learn, fuck, dropped my bike, not going to do that again.Or kickstand of my super heavy Ultra in gutter, oh shit is little tilty, bit dodgey .won't do that again. Is a road to learn , as you mentioned from experienced dudes who can pass on the crack.Basic yeah, but helps refine and assist newer riders.
    This year, riding legally on the road for 50 years, like others, but still picking up shit, more ways than one, and what a fucken blast this wind in the face has been , aye.

    That's fair enough Baloff, we all live & learn. Sometimes though, I do like to learn from somebody else's mistakes.
