2012 chevy express with stabilitrak/traction control


Stabilitrak will do nothing for you when gravity is involved. If you are sliding on a hill, you are going to go where gravitity takes you. Stabilitrak will help if the car yaws (look it up), and traction control helps if one wheel loses traction, then the other takes over (I have simplified it) Basic driving skills in inclement weather is the best control you will have. In other words, slow the "F" down, and stop depending on the vehicle to get you out of your mess. With the new cars that parallel park themselves, rear cameras, blind spot and backup sensors, etc basic skills are being lost. Soon you young folks, will expect the vehicle to wipe your bum. It is cool watching a 767 fly itself..hands off, but there is nothing like a flying a Cessna yourself..hands on.

Doc...a beautiful bike.
I was driving a Kawasaki 750, bought new, and the fastest production bike on the road in 1971 before you were born. (Maybe) And lots after that...I once rode a Gold Wing in a sudden snow storm... no fun at all.
Nice bike, friend.

My list of motorized two wheelers throughout the years: moped , CR 125, YZ 125, XR 200, Husky 390, GSXR 1100, Virago 1100, CB 175, CB 750, Kawasaki 750 and now this Harley. I'm not sure what the motor size is on it, though.

I miss having a bunch of dirt bikes, live too far from the dirt now. Maybe get one or two again soon though, my middle daughter is turning out to be a bit of a daredevil. I'd be surprised if your harley was under 100 cubic inches.

Never had a dirt bike...and the smallest street bike I ever owned was 500cc. Never owned a Harley either....don't know why, owned most of everything else. I guess the closest was a British 650 Truimph... Leaked oil like a sieve, but sounded more like a Harley than the "JapScrap" we used drive back in the 70s.. The Japanese bikes, like their cars, have come a long way since the 70s.
