Petition to stop trucks from using Tail of the Dragon

Petition to remove Trucks on US129 (Tail of the Dragon)
Here is a link to a petition being circulated to remove transport trucks access from us 129 aka The Tail of the Dragon. If you have never been on this road, you are surely missiong out on the best road I have seen in North Amreica for all bikes. It is 11 miles filled with 318 curves, in the mountains.

The problem is that it is 1 lane each direction, with little or no shoulder available. Many times truckers driver it and they end up taking both lanes up and usually the shoulder if it is in that area. To further the danger, there is almost always a blind corner within meters/yards of you, and often double blind corners. There have been fatalities here, as well as very serious injuries.

I would like to request help from everyone here, to help rid this road of the dangers of transport trucks. They have aternate routes, its just this is the most direct so they take it to save time. Please fill out the petition if you agree. It doesnt matter where you live in the world, one day you may be riding this fantastic stretch of road.

Thanks!!!!!

Sounds good to me, I'll have to make sure the wife isnt planning anything, but its rare that we have anything that cant be moved around. So....99.9% In for the 21st. Ive never been to Twiggs but its near my house. Either location is good with me, what time are you thinking? I dont know if Patrol is gonna be back by then or not. Might still be in Texas.... Probably getting more plates for his truck and wifes suv LOL

hey Riverrat.
Sorry I had an all nighter with the fire dept. had an Apartment building fire, so I got 0 sleep, came home and crashed until 3pm and then did an oil change and went to meet the guys. I just checked the forums now. I am usually free most days of the week, feel free to ring me up anytime if you wanna ride.

Was nice getting out and meeting up with you guys today. After we left Mr. Biggs I went for a little ride out by that paint ball place thats next to the old dump. Doesn't look like that place is even being used any more.

Junac and I are thinking about doing the power-line trail some day this week, if anyone else is interested in going leave a post and we can set up a day thats good. I'm free all week and pretty sure Junac is also, so lets try and set something up for this week.
Would probably meet up in Essex at the Timmy's(the one by #3) for anyone from around here wanting to go, and could stop in Blenheim also. The trail starts not far from Blenheim.

Just bought a Garmin 276C GPS. Been looking for a while now. Most go for $500 or more Paid $375. Hope I've done the right thing

Sweet, see if you can map it out or something. I think you can do the ant track thing with that cant you?
Im totally Noob to GPS, I always used map and compass in the army

hey figured out why I only got 800ml from oil change, I didnt know the bike stored in the frame too. so I might have to redo it. not sure if I have to get new oil now as it will have blended with the bit that was in the frame too. Might just dump it and see how much I get, and then I know how much was in the frame. just not sure what he had in it before this. I put in THUMPER Semi Syth, 11 bucks a bottle, so i dont really wanna go get more if I can hold off till fall LOL. what ya think?

BTW
I got a gamrin Nuvi the other day, not exactly the best but guy bought a new one and had lost the cord for the computer to update it. i think I can buy a new one though. Like I said Im a total noob to GPS

Your manual has to tell you how much oil the bike takes and the proper procedure for changing it
I follow that shit to the letter, can't afford expensive repairs
