Some photo's from Deal's Gap

These photo's were taken at Deals Gap during our run to Dragon's Tail in Tennessee . These photo's were taken by KILLBOY.com.

Here I am taking it fairly easy , getting use to the turns but still giving it a bit of a squirt.




Here is a bit of a scary turn . I managed to spin the rear in 3rd gear around the turn . I managed to ride it out , and just correct it in time for a GNARLY left turn.
You can actually see the black mark by the rear wheel.

Aurel, riding and camping in weather like that deserves more than a front page!

Nice pics, but you guys really need to get some decent riding boots. I prefer something that offers a bit more protection than a pair of Reebok running shoes can offer!!

Los Angeles vers New York est un seul voyage de deux jours pour quelques motocyclistes

990s

Hi there, here is a photo of my 990s with about 30km on the clock! It now has nearly 1000kms (due for it's 1st service) I will post decent shots of it being used as god intended it as soon as I get some.

Sorry I had to add the photo as an attachment as I don't know how else to do it!!
