OR have you ever seen an off-pavement V-Strom pass a Cruiser?

From the position they ended up in, I'd say the Miata was on the wrong side of the road. You never know the way some people drive tho. Could have been the truck's fault.

I passed through when the Miata was on the rollback.....I didn't know it was a head-on either.

I would've guessed the same thing, but I'm usually wrong about... well, just about everything I take a guess at.

Most from track riding, that kind of lean angle on the street is not something I generally do.
How do you get that with the cylinder head in the way? I've dragged a cylinder head before but nothing behind it touched down.

I thought you were talking about a B-king, I was thinking "I can't imagine dragging the cylinder head on an i4"

Speaking about Miatas, they are in town so watch out for them on the Dragon.
They tend to run over the double yellow.
