I'm glad they are meticulous in their "all for show" spiel; Two of them having goggles on their helmet but wearing sunglasses for eye protection.

Only if you turn on more than 4 lights.



Mine were illegal, but I didn't ride with them all on.

What you can not tell from the pic is that he is coming down backwards in neutralWin for him on style points

He loses points for having the brakes on though.

My biggest pet peeve of most car drivers, and many bike riders. They SLAM on the brakes mid corner. Granted, i always leave plenty of following distance. I hate it when i get all excited that they want to take a corner at a brisk pace, only to find out mid corner that they don't. Too bad they aren't in Porsche's, That shit will get them killed.

Damn yuong-uns don't know a replica when they see one.

One of the most endearing album covers of all time!

Same thing in nearby VT, MA, NH, and ME. Now the Dragon does sound exceptional, but do the hassles negate the advantages?

Found all this shit 20+ yrs ago just by browsing teh maps and looking for squigglies.
Do yer homework.

Actually I googled Quadropenia to find the pic I posted...the album cover doesn't show the headlights so it would have not made the point or nearly as funny.

Personal opinions regarding crossing the double yellow my mean that many people wouldn't ride like that but it tells you nothing about the riders dumbassness. Head and body position look pretty good at least.
I know of no time except to pass(and the UK etc.) where there is any reason whatsoever to be left of the center line.If you find yourself there,you know you fucked up. What is the point of going to the Gap and then attempting to straighten out the road as much as possible. If you can't do it in 12 feet of lane,you need to quit or slow down to your skill level. The track is one thing,shit coming the other way(maybe me) is another.Nothing good can come of it. Maybe you shaved a couple feet and a second or two.BFD.You aren't racing,no matter how fast you are trying to go. You have a lane,use it.
