There is a guy that lives along the road that rides a bagger. He will also smoke yer ass. Floor boards are a normal wear item for him. And a few locals that ride old slow Buells get along pretty good too.

Next time I go, I'm gonna make a pass on my scooter!

That Veyron is at least $1.7M, so it throws off the average. Looks like there's a second one behind the Ferrari.

yeah it takes just a slight lean on a boat with floorboards to start scraping

Why are you trying to brag up someone elses riding skills? What about yours? Do you drag pegs riding around florida?

That's not the recommended way to change the front wheel.

For sure. It took the Vette's front fender off and dented the rear quarter. And tore the front wheel from the hub.

And this corner has apparently claimed others, too. Look at the long skid mark to the left of the bike.

Looks like the vet could have missed the bike, can roll by with his driver side tire on the white line and still get around the corner. Maybe he's one of those 'not in my lane' people, or just an oh shit, kind of freezy moment. still, definitely the car drivers fault..

Dude, if it takes you that long to piss, you might need to see a doc.

I few years back I met Yellow Wolf at Deals Gap when he was filming other people riding the gap. I asked what he did about fast guys on sport bikes that wanted video. He said, "I just tell them that if they leave me behind the video won't be very good." No drama and no ego. However......very few people are good enough to leave him behind. After all he did make money following and filming "fast guys" from a Goldwing loaded with video gear.
