Off ramps have some scary bits. I once nearly hit a hobo.

It's all good.

I should amend that to "sharp enough my heels are showing road wear".

I heard they're nekkid in FL. A excellent reason to avoid them.

I can neither confirm nor deny the accusation.

So that's about five degrees lean angle.

Something like that. I've already scraped up the exhaust pretty bad because I forgot I wasn't on my Goldwing anymore. Now my chrome won't get me home, I guess.

Not a lot of bikes on the dragon right now.

If you want culture shock ride a hard tail, jockey shift/suicide clutch (with a shitty worn linkage at that) low HD after riding a KLR; bumps aren't nearly as fun.

Lights for twisties

Mount a good set of lights to the forks, up as high as tupperware will permit.
Now aim them cross-eyed, Right forks aims to left side of road, left fork aims to right.
So long as you keep lean angles within reason, you get a remarkable amount of light down the road. Some adjustment/tuning may be required.

That makes so much sense it just can't be true.
