FP Racing Shorty Lever Install and Impressions
I first install the FP Racing shorty levers on my Gixxer and then give my
final impressions of them. I fell that these levers are WAY nicer then the
Chinese ones that I put on my CBR250R.

How to Pick up Your Motorcycle... like a girl [LJ's Archives]
"Learn to laugh at yourself, or others will do it for you."
Remixing some old classics. Trolls were getting out of control, and the
old intro music I used to use was not kosher per YouTube (no idea where I
found the song originally and no way to contact the artist for permission).
So, let's start over! And no more moderated comments! *balloons!
Oh, and for the record, it was not "one rock." There were dozens. Ergo, I
picked up one of the rocks and "made an example of it." That'll learn 'em.
ORIGINAL VIDEO DESCRIPTION:
And, frankly, how to drop it like a girl.
This is in the "how to and style" category, because not only do I
demonstrate how-- I do it with style.
I have over 11,000 miles on 2 wheels, and this is my most serious incident
yet. I ride safe and do my best to keep it shiny side up. But, mistakes
happen. Hopefully, I am the sort who learns from them.
The best I can figure, my rear tire went nut-zo on the rocks, and I in turn
when a little nut-zo on the front brake. I don't remember grabbing it, but
it wouldn't have taken much, with my back tire already losing traction and
the front tire already turned... Glancing down as it happened certainly
didn't help. Target fixation FTW! It's everything I know not to do, and
everything I practice and drill not to do... *sigh*
