Stunting a 750+lbs bike is pretty freaking impressive.


I don't even like cruisers, but I'll eventually own a Rocket III.

They're really, really, really freakin' sweet. Imagine a Ford Powerstroke 7.3 strapped to a La-Z-Boy.

I've wheelied my M109R, got about a foot off the ground and I panicked. Fork rebuilds are time consuming.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Good chance that was my brother. He said you did a panic wheelie through the intersection. He caught up with you and noticed you had shit your pants - figured that was better than writing you a ticket.
