I might have seen you, I was there this weekend with the Buell rally.

I was there today about 5pm. It was fucking empty. When I stopped at the general store there were maybe 10 other bikes there. I didn't see a single person in front of or behind me for my whole run.

It was a last minute decision to swing through just for shits and giggles, as I was in the middle of a ride from Austin to Boston that brought me right through the neighborhood. I figured to swing through just to cross it off the list. Looks like I couldn't have picked a better time. The weather was perfect too. I can't wait to come back and explore all the other roads.

Killboy hasn't posted today's pics yet. My proofs are already up on moonshine photo's website. No fail!

It's been that way for me more often than not.

I can already see that his chain has too much slack and the grips are the wrong color.

Your lean angle is 1.7 off. I can tell.
