I don't know. My experience with horses is that they don't listen to me and just go where they want. I've had my Strom do that to me as well.

Mine is more like a pack mule. Overload it , and it still does what I want it to.

Lord , if I have to look like a Power Ranger , can it at least be Amy Jo Johnson?

Lighten up, Francis. If you can't take some sarcasm, an Internet forum is the last place you should be.

Why would you bury it? I understand there are lots of useful things that can be made from a departed horse...........man's ingenuity.

I've been told to never spook a horse or it will buck you. Found the same to be true with my wee.

Sitting in the parking lot, ready to go into traffic with the handlebars turned to the right. Little too much clutch, not enough gas and sure enough, bucked me right off. Now a horse would have got back up on it's own, but not my wee, it just laid there waiting for me to pick it up.



In my defense, I've only had it a week, I'm still getting used to the riding position, clutch friction zone... yeah, that's it, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
