"Have you ever ridden a Harley or man-size cruiser?" Yes, borrowed. My heaviest bike was a 1978 Yamaha 650cc I rode from 1980 to 1985. You can high-side a heavy cruiser, but you have to really screw up riding it, compared to a sportier bike with stickier tires and stronger brakes.
"Have you ever high sided?" Yes, once on the street and several times on the dirt.
Low sided? Dozens of times on dirt and grass. I have slid the back tire several times on pavement without crashing, probably from dirt bike experience from 1967 to 1975.
Have you ever ridden a bike faster than 55 mph? Yes, especially when the speed limit is 65 to 70. I have not rode a bike over 105 mph, and then only a few seconds at a time. I have not done track days.
"I doubt 'yes' answers any of those questions. GTFO troll from Kentucky." Why don't you use constructive comments/corrections since you seem to know all the answers to everything bike related, instead of constant fucking moronic whiny-baby type attacks? If I ran this forum I would ban negative assholes like you and GTS, even though you both sometimes give good info instead of bashing.
“Banking institutions have banished precious metals and substituted a more fluctuating and unsafe medium; they have withdrawn capital from useful improvements and employments to nourish idleness for the few, who prefer demoralizing pursuits to labors useful to the whole; the peace of the whole is endangered by evils more easily to be deplored than remedied." by Thomas Jefferson,1810 (edited)
