Oh boy - HD owners really are clueless..

On another forum - which is definitely HD centric - someone actually asked at what speed countersteering kicked in on a specific model...


Sigh - ok - yeah - they're dumber than dirt...i know...

Trust me - not ALL of us are that retarded...

He clarified his question later in the thread -
"hahaha funny. just wondering if there is a big difference between large bikes and small sporties."

The speed will be slightly different on a sportbike than a 'large bike'. There's more to it than just the mass of the bike. There's a whole boring article about it here:
