I met Daniel a couple years ago when I went down to Brazil the first time. He's in town so we went to get ice cream and do some heavy garage chatting. He kept looking at the Knuckle so I told him to ride it around to see how overrated they are. Its kind of a trip watching somebody else ride your bike because there is so much involved in a motorcycle..the sounds, smells and that sense of "one-ness" that happens when everything clicks while you're riding a bike. But when you watch from the sidelines as somebody else experiences what you thought you knew so well but is now completely alien to you....sounds and smells, it becomes a completely different beast from the outside.
Daniel, thanks for the hangout sesh and a different perspective.
