    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    That's like this, 3rd race of the French Moto GP at Le Mans in 2017. Oil on the track from a previous accident.

    Yup. Riding on 2, real fast, feels fantastic - until it doesn't.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    Ayup. Two mantras I had drilled into me when I was a young 'un about to swing my leg over my first motorcycle:

    From an old biker: It isn't if you go down, it's when you go down.

    From Boy Scouts: Be prepared.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.
