Wow, this thread has it all....The obligatory Harley hating/"pirate" comments, the riding technique experts, the "you should ride at the same level as me, or you're an idiot" crowd, the Monday morning quarterbacks, and now; the fashion police!

Took the W650 for a ride to the Dragon.

Nice day, little crowd, good sunshine.



Place on 129 north of the swing bridge where two brothers on different bikes got killed by a wide running auto several weeks ago.
