Great answer. The old left to left and right to right tips you over, huh?Only in my kayak.
Yeah man, its such a slight movement and one I personally learned to do very young with dirtbikes that you just learn to do it without realizing what you're actually doing. I think I was in my mid to late 20s before I found out what I was actually doing. It blew my mind at first too lolWow you’re blowing my mind! I can’t remember …. You’re saying when you start to lean into the turn you twitch the bars the other way? Like you, I must have done that unawares. Totally. But ok, because, based on my experience with you, I take whatever you say at absolute face value. If you say that’s how they steer, then that’s how they steer. And I also agree with the poster who said the picture of the rear end of the turning bike stepping out was just that, oversteer. But yes TOO, it did well demonstrate counter steering as he intended.
LOL, I like Harleys dont get me wrong but historically theyre just not my type of bike. Having said that I owned a Sportster once and who knows maybe Ill own another Harley one day since I can't ride Sportbikes anymore.Finally, Graywolf, you might not be entirely shocked to learn that Harleys aren’t for ME either. How could they be, if you don’t care for them much yourself. I hope nobody hates us for saying that! I do love America, and dogs.
Strangely enough Psoriatic Arthritis is also one of the biggest factors to why I can't ride sports bikes also. If I were to ever get another sport bike though it would probably be a BMW S1000RR or a Ducati 959 Panigale.Anyway I can’t ride anymore with my arthritis but if I could and were to get a bike I’d get an MV Augusta Brutale. So it wouldn’t surprise me if you already have a couple of them sitting in your garage lol.
I wish I was kidding you but if you have it then you know it SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS lol. I can deal with the Psoriasis itself. To me its just a nuisaunce, its the accompanying arthritis that I find hard to deal with.You are now freaking kidding me??? Are you actually telling me you HAVE psoriatic arthritis? Guess what I have, ha. A bad case.
Btw I saw your gallery. Does your wife or GF happen to be Filipina, if I may ask?) I used to go there frequently (Metro Manila mostly) on business. …. Given all this, I’m surprised I never too had a Harley Sportster, like you. But I’ll say this: it’s the only one I’d consider, other than the Breakout CVO. Lol. I do know something about them. Let’s say I’m conflicted about Harleys.
Incidentally, not surprisingly, like you, Graywolf, I had dirt-ish bikes as a kid. A Yamaha Enduro 80 cc — I think they called it — and then a 100 cc. Then an RD 400 which would now be considered, I guess, a naked, lightweight, sport bike. It was considered pretty zippy for its time. We’re talking about 400 cc and I think 38 hp though. It certainly did wheelie. By any chance, we’re you went to go karts too? I was.I wish I was kidding you but if you have it then you know it SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS lol.

My wife is indeed Filipina. Shes from Caloocan City which is part of Metro Manila. Quite an amazing people imho. Some of the kindest people you could ever want to be around. Shes completely devastated right now because she just turned 40 yesterday.............I MEAN 32!!!! Dont tell her I told you guys her age, I wont live to see tomorrow lol.
I just developed Psoriasis mid 2020 so I've only had it for a little under 3 years now. I'm 49 now. The skin portion doesn't tend to change much although sometimes it will become raw in a particular area and I may have to hit it with some steroid cream for a day or two to get it sorted. The arthritis aspect is a whole different monster as you're aware. I have it in a lot of my various joints, everyhting from my neck, to my back, to my thumb, hip, ball of my right foot etc. I dont move so well these days.I have had psoriatic arthritis since my mid 30s, I am now over 60. Usually, I agree, the psoriasis is mostly a nuisance, unless it is in full killer mode, then it is more than a nuisance. I might have it worse than you. What kills are the joints. Like you, I suppose. So I.
My wife and are coming up on our 12th anniversary at the beginning of April. My brother use to own a small business in Pampanga, Philippines and he was the one that introduced me to her. There are definitely quite a lot of parallels. I feel like I've seen a twilight zone episode similar to this lolAs I did work in the Philippines, I was fortunate enough to meet my wife there; we’ve been married for about 15 years now. These coincidences are almost scary. I’m surprised we don’t have the same type of job too, but I am a retired lawyer, and I understand that you are in IT. Rest assured, I could not do your job!
I did own one go kart as a kid and it was a heck of a lot of fun. I dont remember too much about it other than whoever built it overpowered it. Its nothing like go karts that youd go to a kart track and drive. This thing would probably do 50+MPH. I remember the first time I drove it, it literally took my breath away. Of course I was only about 10 at the time so it didnt take much back then lol. It may have even been what kick started my need for speedIncidentally, not surprisingly, like you, Graywolf, I had dirt-ish bikes as a kid.
