Btw, awesome pix. Love to lean and wack the gas right here!

Not the Dragon, we sat there 5+ minutes, and only saw 1 or 2 cars. What does not show up well is the elevation change, it is a real world cork screw.

TC and RD,
Thanks for the birthday wishes. I'll try and make the CRAP.
My Dad always said that getting old was hell but it beat the alternative.
Keep the Dragon photos coming. Riding the three turns in 300 miles here in FL sucks but at least the weather is nice.

A ride out to the ranch with a diverse group.

Wow, you can tell the speed of a moving motorcycle from a still photo.

If that's who I think it is, I'd pay money to watch you try to stay within a mile of him on that road...

How big a contact patch do you think you have with a "real" bike tire?

I like how he aimed his PIAA lights to light up the road when leaned over. Very clever.

Yeah, I'd pay money to see how long MrPhotoMan could hang with the "dumbsider". It would be quite entertaining... for about a minute. Then it would just be sad. Funny, but sad.
