    Default Amazing acceleration

    I just got back from Americade yesterday and had a great time.Quick story on amazing power- I entered I87 ( the Northway) and opened her up in second and flew up the road, my wife taps me on the shoulder and said the wind just blew her helmet off her head, what? I pulled over and looked around to see her helmet rolling down the highway at 75mph, a few bikes passed by giving me the thumbs up! Wow, turns out she hadn't pulled the strap all the way through the second loop. Needless to say we'll be buying her a new helmet, I'm still shaking my head at that one.

    So you'll have to put the cowl back on and ride solo till you get a new helmet?

    funny story. On the next helmet make sure she gets one that fits tightly. It should be snug enough to hold itself on even without the strap. If it easily comes off then it wouldn't do much good for here in a wreck

    Well it was real tight on the way home since it was missing the foam insides I stuffed it with wash cloths and personally tightened it myself and told her the only way it would come off again is with part of her in it. It was too late to get another that night so it was a little drafty on the 300mi trip home.

    Yes the punch in the ribs or fingernails in the shoulder usually get my attention.

    Talk about bad fit, while traveling 125 mph I got the rib punch combined with the should scratch, umphhhh! I slowed down to find my gf's helmet had turned around and the visor was on the side of her head... it wasn't so funny when I got scolded.

    Ride on...

    Bet you were still laughing inside.

    I had a fun experience with my right leg 1 day when accelerating as entering the expressway. Very slightly picked it up and it proceded to try & wind surf at 100. Didn't realize I was going that fast. 1st time I really got on it while merging.

    That gave me a nice laugh. Thank you very much.

    I can see everyone worrying about your wifes safty after the lid came off but as no one was hurt its good to be able to sit back and see the funny side. And what a funny side it was i can just picture it. Nice one mate. Thanks for making me laugh.

    Mind you my wife would never get back on the bike again if i did that to her.
