If it turns out he's clutching his balls, would that make it ok since he's at least clutching something?

High sides? Does he not know how to lay 'er down? Must have been a piece of gravel in the road.

No one of them damn corners that make them break the parade, side by side, formation.

He tried to lay it down, but chickened out at the last second. You have to commit to your craft.

Hard to tell if that's a moob or his arm tucked in his shirt. If he's an amputee, he must be running a Rekluse-style auto clutch.
Thumbs up for still riding.

There should be a law up there that your car/mc gets shot with a red paint ball/many paint balls if you do something like this.

Make it a nationwide law. So if you when get home and your car is hammered with paint balls you would know that is an indication that you may be a shitty/rude/inconsiderate driver.

That IS my regular loop - I didn't know Tathum Gap was closed. Know the reason ?

From http://grahamstar.com/articles/2013/...7430265678.txt

Quote:
Tatham Gap Road, which connects Robbinsville and Andrews, will be closed indefinitely by the U.S. Forest Service because of extensive damage caused by nearly 11 inches of rain during a four-day period in January.

Cheoah District Ranger Lauren Stull said the gravel road up Long Creek to Joanna Gap will remain open, but a temporary gate at the gap will close the road to Andrews. However, the road to the tower atop Joanna Bald will remain open.

On the Andrews side of the mountain, the existing gate will be kept shut until repairs are made.

The closed section is about 3.3-miles long.

Normally, the forest service closes the road during the winter. This year, the popular road will remain closed until further notice.

Due to existing and possible road failures, the road will be closed to all forms of traffic, including horse and foot traffic, until it is determined the roadbed is stable enough to be used.

Stull said funding is being sought to repair Tatham Gap Road and three other roads in the region. Total repairs for the region are estimated at $5 million.

All of the roads may take up to two years to be repaired.

“Parts of the roads are too dangerous for motor vehicles right now, and our first priority is to protect the public,” Stull said.

There is no specific estimate on how long Tatham Gap Road will be closed.

Other roads closed in the area include Whigg Branch in the Cheoah and Nantahala Districts; Tuni Creek and Fires Creek.
