Amen to that Griff!
Blakkaw, I admit, that is the first thing I look at when I check a bike out, but it doesn't really mean anything. 85% of the people around here have chicken strips. Give it time, it will happen automatically after some practice and time riding. Just don't push it all at once. It will happen eventually.
I don't know how you can go and try to lean over that far and go that fast in the dark. Scares the $hit out of me when I can't see ahead of me!
