The real hero is the guy/gal who sold him the bike full of oil and coolant and aired the tires so it would make it. Cheers

Also a counterpoint to those who think high rpms on the highway are a “poor design”. I watched the entire video, which I rarely do, and saw the STAR as the bike, not the rider. Therefore I enjoyed it. The “poor little 500, a 40 year old bike, performed stupendously!

Over the years folks have looked at my bikes and I with sympathy, at times. It is then that I cheer them up by offering to race, which initially brings raised eyebrows, then a grin. Sure, where they ask? To Chicago and back I say matter of factly. That’s about a 1750 mile round trip. Their grin fades and they remember something they have to get to. 😆
I have used that one on Tesla owners. That makes them snort and go away pretty effectively, lol! Not that I have any bias against Tesla, but boy, the owners and fan-bois seem to be giving BMW owners a run for 1st place in the snobbery race.

That's because they're saving the planet that your ICE is destroying, you bourgeois pig! Get with the times and drink the Kool-Aid! ;)

Can anyone bear to watch his vids? I guess some will. Pro wrestling has an audience, after all.

The two words I make a point of ignoring when someone is trying to hail me, "yo" & "bro". "Buddy" used to be annoying enough over the last 40 years, but current slang has just become sickening. One of my best friends always calls me "bubba", but he's a Boston native, so I let it slide, lol!
