Every time I grind the boards, my first reaction is to lift my foot. Probably a bad reaction, but it is instinctive. The board pushes up on my foot. Of course, I have never ground them that hard. I usually straighten up and slow down (get off the throttle, touch the back brakes) when I first hear them grinding.

I do have floorboard extensions, so they probably grind a lot sooner than that guy's did.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

It's funny that he got up and crossed the street so nonchalantly like "nothing to see here".

Every time I see something like this I feel fortunate because I know I do stupid stuff that I don't even realize and seem to get away with it.

Only a Street Glide, no big loss...

I watched the video a few times and it seems that when he let his foot slide off the floorboard and hit the saddle bag he jerked the bars to pull himself up and oopsie.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
