As far as possible be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant, they too have their story. Remember always, there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

That video scared the shit out of me. I kept waiting for something to come rolling out or be sitting in the road when you came over the hill. I was actually squirming in my chair. I know how it feels, I put the first 50 miles on my restored H2 last summer with only a rear brake. :roll:

I love the wobbly camera near the end, waiting for someone to ask if it's the legendary handling :D :D :D

And no wavy needles - amazing :shock:
