What's next? Neck of the Dragon? Eyebrow of the Dragon? Large intestine of the Dragon? Small intestine of the Dragon. Colon of the Dragon? The possibilities are endless.

I officially dedicate route 590 from Hawley, PA to Lackawaxen, PA as the vas deferens of the Dragon.

Jesus Got any more info on this vid? Seems they were visiting a race, and the vid is coverage of the ride to and from the race. This must be the worst I've ever seen! They seem unable to keep the bikes in their lane, not only running over the middle line but also running wide on most of the corners!

EDIT it's these guys;

I'm not sure if junkyards bought the full used vehicles or what - maybe he stored them on his property? But inevitably he'd have another soon enough and fill it up.

It's not just 129, lazy riders and drivers are all over the twisty roads in the South. Definitely a good number of tourists from states that have boring flat and straight roads, but lazy locals too. Friend on a Ducati was killed when a wrecker crossed the double yellow and tore his head off. It's been a dozen years but I still remember how his wife snapped, grief beyond belief at the loss and loathing for everyone that was on the trip with him, "they" did this to him..
