That bike has probably spent more of it's life leaned over than upright.
At least while it's moving.

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.
For the Un-enlightened, what is the CRAP??

Carolina Rally And Picnic, an annual gathering of Urals in Sanford, NC during the first weekend of May. It really is open to anyone, but the Uralistas started it and have been running it for years over on Soviet Steeds. If you've ever wanted to see some hacks, that is the place to do it.

Yep, that is who you think it is, that's Yellow Wolf.

Sure , he's fast , but the fact you guy's get left behind by a Goldwing says more about you than him.

Where did mrphotoman go? Bring your ride up to the Gap and ride with that "idiot with the TINY contact patch". Oh and bring a few dollars.

What did he say when you passed him?

Yellow Wolf is amazing

I've been passed by him on the Gap before. Dude is crazy fast! I'm on a ZRX 1100 doin' a brisk pace when I see a yellow GoldWing in my mirrors. I move over and he is gone in 2-3 turns and I never saw again until I rolled through the Resort parking lot. The physics of moving that much mass, that quickly bogs the mind.

I never thought I was a super hero , but I don't ride like an old woman either. Besides , you obviously already have an idol.

The Super Hero part is only in your mind.

You forgot to answer the question...
When did you pass Yellow Wolf?
