I just wonder if she's going to do a block pass so he can't pass her back on the next corner.

Hey BH,

Just remember that photogs are sitting there all day long, day after day and take thousands of photos a day... whatever turns up here are "hand picked".... chances you may sit there all day and see nothing and lost a day's riding.

All you need to do is spend an hour at the Deals Gap resort eating lunch and you will see all kinds of interesting and/or weird stuff. The road itself is hardly worth riding when it's busy.

Up here, watching the county boat launch on Lake St. Clair is even better. You wouldn't believe what some of the Sunday sailors can do with a boat and trailer. But I digress........

I used to have a mooring right off the slip, sometimes it was hard to tear myself away from the fun to go out sailing

Wasn't it last year that a couple on a GW trike went wide and got killed... by hitting a boat on a trailer?

Go hang out with one of the photogs on a weekend day, and you will see enough that your desire to ride the road is strongly diminished.

You should see the stuff that isn't published. I've seen several pics of ADV sticker wearing fools doing all kinds of dumb stuff, just this season. To the BMW of Manhattan, GS rider with the ADV sticker on the fender, Dakar, Michelin, and Tail of the Dragon sticker on the cases on Tuesday or Wednesday: Picnic is a REALLY POOR choice of places to pass!

I've never had to sit with a photog for much more than 15 minutes without seeing something so stupid that I want to remove myself from the road, or at least hide behind a large immovable object.

As much as I too would like it to be her passing the supermoto I think he's passing her based on the helmet turn of each rider. The supermoto guy is looking further down the road where as she's looking right at the corner exit and may be apexing a bit early. Cute nonetheless.

They both have their balls of feet on the pegs as opposed to the waddle-duck style so they both seem to know what they're doing. They could just be riding together CHP style :)

Or it could be that they're riding together in tight formation. I've seen that done before.
