This thread has really sucked lately. How about we cut all the BS and get back to photos?

XS Bell helmet fits good but jacket and pants? Revzilla has some better fitting gear for her.
Rukka does lady specific gear. Not tried personally for the obvious reason but I hear good reports about the fit.

Dude! If you are this pissed about motards blowing by you than you are REALLY gonna blow out your main o-ring when a dirtbike, on dirt tires, with side cases blows by you in a corner ...........Stick to cruising A1A or whateva it is you do in Flo-Ri-Da!

Got some friends that will ride Croom with you that will give you a good workout.

blow by me all you like. just do it in the next lane over and don't make me have to see you in the ditch on the next bend like so many others. between biketoberfest and bike week we get this influx of intolerable asses from the frozen north making it hell for the few capable FL native riders that just want to enjoy the ride without having to dodge out of state corpses.

He's just jealous, because if you drop a motard, you dust yourself off, pick it up and keep riding, maybe get some new sliders later.
Drop anything else and it's $100s or $1000s for some new plastic or chrome and you're probably hitching a ride home, either because your bike is inoperable or one or more of your limbs are..

Ah, so they are. I breezed bythat photo, didn't notice the uniforms. Those are odd-looking crash bars-- are those for hanging special LEO equipment off of (like on the rider's left) or are they stock?

Those fellas look serious.

I'm just razzin ya dude. I think the major issue is that there are far to many willing to risk far to much on public roads. I agree that some should keep the full on shenanigans on the track but............................what would we have to make fun of????

+ 11T Billion

One minor lowside on the 2004 R1..............$5000 dollars in parts alone.

Endo the big KTM offroad. Had to true up the front wheel, loosen and retighten forks and added some awesome battle scars. Nothing but a couple hours worth of work! Which also involved drinking beer! Win-Win

Actually, those are Tennessee Highway Patrol bikes. They also have Harleys with typical cop Harley looks. The BMWs are new for this year. Paint scheme is black, tan and white same as with their cars.

Riders left is PA/Siren, riders right, you can see a radar/lidar gun holster.

The crash bars on most motor units are meant to be USED. Hot pursuit turns to foot pursuit, bike can be dropped on a flat surface with no damage. Notice the bags are nicely protected as well.

Are you looking at the same picture we are. The black and silver unit? Yeah, that's definitely NC. Still don't believe me?
