I don't even like riding on the "dragon" myself because you never know when some dip wad will blow it and take you out.

It is the last road I would take my kids on, geared up or not.

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.
Paint ball guns? Fuck that! Rocket launcher. Blow his ass to kingdom come and send a bill for the missile to his family.

Have you NEVER crossed a double yellow line?

Some people have a different philosophy with regard to straightening the curves. If there's nothing coming and the driver can see that, it becomes an issue between him and the law, nothing more. We could have an academic debate over whether the lines really need to be there.

The initial discussion involved recognizing that to be a very blind curve. If it is the one I'm thinking of, the photographer actually has a better view around it than the driver does at this point. Even if the driver has a line of sight around it, he didn't 100ft back when he committed to steering into the oncoming lane.

In the comment section KB said he did the same thing later going the other direction. Seems more like he just can't ride. Hope he lives long enough to learn how.

Well, at least he was consistent. That's gotta be worth something.

I think that's a pretty small stature rider. I have a similar bike. Mine is an Interstate instead of Saber. I have floor boards but the same handle bars. I am no where near as stretched out and I am only 5'10". I have had my bike on the dragon and the handle bars are fine for riding that type of road. I do however have to bend forward a little to do a locked out U-turn in a parking lot. Comfortable bike for cruising Florida roads which I do 95% of the time. I found clearance the biggest issue, on the Dragon, not the rack or the handle bars.
