Well yeah, I was exaggerating a bit, and yes, it was a given he's going down. I'll defer to those that have actually raced their bikes, I just ride on the street !

My point is that what is pretty inconsequential to a car driver can be catastrophic (telephone pole) to a motorcycle. Not the same as your rain example, which should still have reasonably safe runoff...

The main issue I see is ground clearance, if there's more than 5-6" of snow you're going to start plowing with the front spoiler. Not to mention the damage an icy chunk or ridge could do !

Not quite right, IMO the lower the polar moment the better, not only will it change directions more quickly, but it will also recover more quickly. A car with a high PMoI may "stay in control"...

As mentioned, Always have a safety backup, whether it's a jack, or the tires shoved under the car. Any single device can fail, even a jack stand, though rare. Do you want to be under the car when you...

I don't remember off the top of my head, I'd have to play around with some Google search terms.

The only other problem with liftbars is I'd have to buy a jack that is low enough to fit under them, pushing the total price higher. So for now, I'll do it the hard way !

BTW, there are similar...

I haven't found any on my '06 either. I just close it in the lower front corner of the door and it's never been a problem. I don't let the car sit for more than a few weeks though.

No, lead acid batteries lose capacity every time they are fully discharged. IIRC it's the NiCd and NiMH batteries that had a "memory".

Yup, my guess is you're exhaust is now sounding how it's supposed to when all sealed up. The "getting louder or quieter" was a leak or crack that finally blew out on you.

I wouldn't worry about the ridge on the rotor, my car has the same thing with EBC red pads and no squeal. I didn't even replace the OEM anti-squeal pad.
