I rode around for about 2 months then complained to someone that it was difficult to get the switch back to the middle to turn the blinker off. It would usually just skip the middle and turn the opposite blinker on. I was then enlightened with the fact that you can push to cancel. At that point I was addicted cause it annoys me that bikes always ride around with their blinkers on. Long story short ... I do the same thing

I'm 3-up on the rear sprocket, so the speedo's pretty much spot-on*; yet I keep trying to subtract 15% and pretend like I'm not really speeding that much.

I'm a truck driver.. so I look to the rear view mirrors more than 20 times a minute.. even if I'm at a stop light, and I have a line of cars behind me (so there's no need) I still do it.. can't stop it! it !

I was riding an old Harley back before I got my KZ, I was always used to shifting via noise/feel.. To this day I always try to shift more when cruising at 60 in Fifth gear, 4K RPM's sounds like the engine is about to blow when you're used to the rhythm of a V-Twin.

I check for 7th regularly. Every once in a while, it's there. Then I wonder how the I mis counted and how long I was riding in 5th.

Are you at least conscientious enough to pick them back up off the freeway?
