How do you guys have the balls to go 9 seconds in the 1/4 mile on a bike that doesn't look too stable at 40? Organ donors for sure...

How does it feel when the handle bars shake at high speeds? Butthole pucker?

Huge levels of testosterone. Organ Donors on DonorCycles

Steering dampers reduce head shake under hard accelerating and braking. With that said, it is ridiculously terrifying. I've survived one and it's not fun.

It all started a long long long time ago...with that said, if you don't want to wave, don't

The typical "SQUID" does that. I do not have time to go into further detail as to that acronym. With that said, I don't do it and hate it when someone does.

The cow/kangaroo hide can be a bit stretchable. There are some stretch panels in certain ares of a full suit. Example: Crotch region.

why does almost every sport bike I see appear to have one headlight out? Is one a low beam and one high?

There are many reasons. Which one is accurate i don't know. Some say, it has to do with voltage etc. Some say having both on from a distance may look like a car at a further distance because the closeness of the front lights on motorcycles.

And yes, if you put on high beam both should light up albeit one may be less brighter then the other.

Have you ever hit a pothole? I've seen a few motorcyclists hit them on the highway and it looks like quite a kick in the ass. Not sure how they can hold on at high speeds.

Yes, I also take it a step further. I check the HOURLY forecast.

Potholes, big cracks in pavement etc all make a motorcycle riders life more difficult than it already is. Sportbike suspensions are on the stiffer side as it is so you feel every bit of compression and misalignment in the pavement. In short is really sucks. As far as holding on, it more so about being prepared for it. Contrary to belief, you DO NOT want to have a super tight grip or a "death grip" on the handlebars. If I'm going over a big bump or a pothole I get my ass up off the seat just a bit and bend my knees which in terms acts as a buffer to decrease the "kick in the balls and ass" feeling.

It started about 5 years ago in the states, the OEM's brought it over from Europe only one headlight on in lowbeam unless you flash the passing lamp then both light up.
