Both

My rigid and my hardtail are both Euro. I was doing a lot of motocross and harley ridin, so wanted everything the same.

My new FS shows up today. I'll leave it standard. I'm finding the faster I ride my hardtail, the easier it is to remember that everthing on the right side is for the rear wheel and everything on the left side is for the front.

right front etc for me.

I usually warn everyone several times before they test ride my bike, but last week I forgot to mention it loudly enough to my mate. He crashed my bike twice on concrete in the parking lot, the second time hard. The bike got a few character scars but he could have broken an arm or wrist. So if you do run right front make sure you clearly warn anyone who rides your bike.

You have to warn people when they check out your bike. I remember most of the time now.

Moto is ahead 12 to 7

Does this mean it is really mere popular or moto's supporters are more likely to vote in a poll?
