Cool feelings on your bike

1) Popping up your face-shield to feel that nice cool air while stuck in traffic...before it gets hot again.
2) Your first biker-wave

Skimming the front tire on the ground through first
Taking off with cold tires and breaking the rear loose and bringing the front up once you get traction

ehhh... clutch or throttle control. pending your choice of wheelie. pow pow power wheelie or cluctch it up, and you tire will not spin much.

but for a rookie wheelieist it may be 50/50.

That is nice.

I get that warm and fuzzy feeling the first lap each session @ trackday. Nothing else like it.

I still say coming down from some of those wheelies can NOT be good for the fork seals!

Back when I had a cool bike cool feelings just came from cheating death again!

When your passenger needs a break from the engine's vibrations.(I can count three on this site)

When the 600s prepare to pass you in the corner but find themselves playing catch up in the straights

You pull off the muffler at Yankees to shut up all the harley guys when they come in and keep revving their bikes.(Amen from those that have been there for that....)
