I've seen those louge boarders out on Hwy56 from BRP down to Vesuvius. They were in full race leathers and helmets and were tearing it up. This must have been 4 or 5 years ago. I think I wrecked into the side of a jeep shortly after seeing them

Had a nice long weekend of riding down to GA again. 1'5xx mi by the time I got home today. Shit still need to put up my LAST Georga RR two weeks ago. Picked up trash in three states, saw a wedding, threw a fallen boulder from the middle of BRP and gave a thru-hiker a protein bar. Life is good











Slept here suspended in the hammock over the bank...until the water rose and there was no more shore

Just word of mouth so far, I thought my brother in-law was getting it so I told rick to hold off posting it. In-law backed out and rick hasn't had time to properly advertise. PM bluethunder (rick) or buckshot92 (nick) for more details.

Your bike took a little nappypoo....
And was thoughtful enough to toss the side bag so you can get in to it with ease...

Glad both you and bike are OK...

It was great to see you..

After 4 years of Patented Stich' Crotch Leak in heavy rains I bought a pair of AD-1's and have been loving them.

HBN - I never threw my blue and white GS down like that...of course, I never rode it much either. Glad you finally checked the fuel pressure on the Spitfire

Aviation Unit to Track Down Speeding Motorcycles

[IMG]http://media.nbcwashington.com/images/671*368/0626-aviation-unit.jpg[/IMG]

Officials in a Maryland county with the highest number of motorcycle fatalities are now using a helicopter to track down speeding riders in an effort to reduce accidents.
Prince George's County's Aviation Unit flies hundreds of feet in the air, tracking motorcycle riders who can reach speeds of up to 150 mph.
"The traffic lane will be clear and the next thing you know, a cyclist will be coming up so fast that the car doesn't see him in time," Lt. Anthony Cline, Commander of the county's Aviation Unit said.
Operation Road Runner is an effort by the county to decrease dangerous, sometimes fatal accidents that can be caused by ground pursuits.
"Most of the bikes can outrun out cruisers, so having the aircraft is a valuable asset," Cline said.
During a ride along with News4, the unit was able to arrest a motorcycle rider driving a stolen bike.
"We allowed out officers to back off and conduct it safely and the final result was an apprehension," Cline said.
