    That's a classic! I always wave when I see another two-wheeler, even cops and bicycles.

    I don't usually know if they wave back since I don't really pay attention.

    Nice! As a former BMW rider I can relate to some of those.

    What the heck is a "chicken strip"?
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    The unused edge of the tire tread. Caused by not leaning the bike over as far as possible while cornering.

    Metzller uses elephants on that area of their tires, but I've never heard them referred to as elephant strips.

    Now, mind you, I live in the flats for the last few years.

    But when I had descents to run my HPV down I counter steered like a thief.

    Those injection tips never lasted long then. Nowadays I can't get rid of them so I understand.
