There's no arguing that the ST1100 isn't a sport tourer, but I would've guessed 600-some lbs. for it. Learn somethin' new every day!

Can't you just drop it and scream like a girl and run away?



That's what frightens me about seeing little old men paddling around on Goldwings. I work out 4-5 days a week in the gym and the Glide still fees heavy in low speed situations.

Because when it tips over when you have a chick on the back she's trapped and you can hang on to her boobies until someone comes and picks the bike up off of you.

Honda claimed about 660 lbs. dry and with a load of fuel, fork oil, crank oil, etc. the thing is bulky. Most of that weight goes away after about 20mph. Putting it on the center stand can send you to the hospital.

Ummmmmm, Buz? Most of us don't have to dump a motorcycle on a woman in order to play a little hanky panky.



Ever wonder why no woman ever goes riding with you twice?

Being able to easily and quickly load your bike into the back of a truck is an excellent skill for Harley guys to learn.



Who else would get more practice?

This is a good thing for all riders to master. I allways found that the better you can control a cycle at low (crawling) speed translates into better control at all speeds.

Default Re: How to Fall Like a Pro

I need to make my own movie on Geezer technique. The key to this whole Geezer Glide riding thing isn't how you ride, it's how gracefully you fall; with STYLE. A nice standup butt slide into the bar parking lot is always a classic manuever. Chicks dig that one. There is also the 50mph Superman Slide down your nearest state route. Drivers will be impressed as hell. Then there is the Parkinglot Plop where you gracefully get dumped on your mug. A quick roll with a bow draws applause from all onlookers. I can see millions being made from this. Buz will be my demo man, and I'll man the camera.

Don't forget also the correct technique for a graceful dismount where the bottle of Boone's Farm Apple Wine in the left hand is kept from breaking or spilling a single drop.
