When I was ~20 I bought an HD, then 2 of my buddies also bought HDs.
One night one of them was riding on an interstate with another guy he knew, when he felt heat on his legs. He looked down to see flames coming off the engine and around his legs. He hopped up onto the seat on his knees, then while kneeling, used the front brake to slow down while steering toward the median. While still rolling, he bailed off into the median while the bike did a reenactment of the final scene of "Easy Rider".
