Pretty easily. While I ride a Vic and not a HD I only weight the outside peg while cornering had as the inside peg has been folded up by the road. Instilling good habits by design.

I wouldn't even say that Deal's Gap is the tightest, most technical road in the area, let alone the world.

There are more technical roads where I live.

You remove them from the bike and place them on a scale.

True. I live in MD and ride in WV all the time. Living there has really downplayed the dragon to me. I used to ride it frequently in the early 90's and it was a blast. I went last year and seemed like a circus.

However, you also don't have photographer at the other riding areas and this thread isn't really possible without it.

I do enjoy the thread.

Me on my way to the gap last year...

Less bickering, more fail. Some of this probably 205, very little dragon. Then again, a lot of the conversation going on here is 205 and little dragon.

How in the hell did those people manage to wreck in those "curves"? I wouldn't even call those a curve and the rest of the "riders" in the vid well no comment is even necessary lol.

Whoa whoa whoa, FYYFFs. I thought we just had these blatherfests on the Pdx meetup thread. Clearly this guy isn't over the line but on it. That is still in his lane for all you football fans. Buncha effing crybabies

Yes.

I control which side, and I scan the ground as I approach a stop to decide which side.

When I have to put the other foot down- that's a fatigue / impairment warning.
