Not directly related, but I have to get my bike inspected every year. I always go to my local Yamaha stealership.
One year I had to get it done and the shop was closed. I took it to a "quicker sticker" place, here in Texas, and I had to ride it for the inspector.
He said, OK, now go straight, get it to about 20 MPH, and lock the front wheel! I snickered. Dude, I can't do that...
He said, well, I can't pass you, if you can't lock the front wheel and maintain your lane.
I said, OK, how about you show me how to do it, and I'll try. With his cocky swagger, he threw a leg over Orion, Got it going fast, and jammed the front brake... LOL, no lockie... He said that my front brakes must be bad, and he was going to fail me.
I finally had enough, and said, do you know about ABS? Smugly, he said, "Of course, most new cars have it now." Yeah, well so does my bike! He didn't believe me. I had to show him the sensors, and the ABS pump.
After a serving of humble pie, he passed Orion and gave me the sticker.
It was a good day...
