Not U tube but it's a video and I like it because I was on this ride. It really captures the great riding we have in N. Georgia.

Short clip from King of Motos --- interestingly, it was covered on Yahoo's news feed.

I can't believe that BMW doesn't get into the unicycle business... just think of how many they could sell if they made them with ABS, Stability Control and DTC!

Sheeit... if BMW put these out, any joker with a checkbook could ride just like that guy!
