No excuse for that. That is how you get killed @ the Dragon.

Looks like he was taking a picture of that sportbike, you just happen to block the picture with your big ass GS:D



...oh deals gap is when I decided that I needed to trade out my superhawk when a GS chased me down and passed me on TKC's... yeah now im that guy... cant beat'em join'em

He doesn't even look like a squid, he looks like the epitome of the BMW dork. The XD or whatever helmet he's wearing would be even better if it was a flip up with the chinbar flipped up.

Viper 6, not me.

Tell us the story about how hard it is to drag an 1150 ADV out of a ditch.

There is a name change thread here somewhere.

Viper6 now known as Ditchtosser.

SR1 04-16-2009 10:03 PM

Shameful in so many ways. First and foremost why is he over the line so far, secondly, why is he so upright?

Whoever you are, please yank that sticker off your bike (how about just ride a different bike) 'till you learn how to ride more safely, at the least?

Joson559 04-17-2009 07:36 AM

and this is all because a "real rider" NEVER crosses the line???

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.. jeez gentlemen!

BikePilot 04-17-2009 07:39 AM

There is no benefit of the doubt when you are on the wrong side of the road and there's a vehicle in the other lane! I don't care if people cross the strips when there's no one else coming the other way (and they are able to ascertain that ahead of time), but this looks just plain foolish. Not to mention there's little reason to be going so friggen slow:rofl

What if the sport bike rider were equally inept? There would have been a major accident. Thank goodness Mr. sportbike is holding a tight line (or adjusted to one when he realized this thing was in his lane).

About the only "justifiable" reason I can think of is if the GS rider were able to note the sport bike's tight line early on, then decided to pass a slow rider in front of him in this manner, even then that's a bit aggressive and doesn't leave much room for error. I'm all for going around slow riders, but not when someone else is coming the other direction.

For the folks saying its ok, give him the benefit of the doubt etc - what would you have said if it were a sport bike upright on the wrong side of the road and a GS holding a tight inside line? I'm fairly certain this would be a huge rant about squids etc with none of this ballanced talk :lol

That's all fine and dandy, but I'd be willing to bet that this picture was at a very bad moment in his riding. With all his gear and accessories (and the ADV sticker heh) I think it's safe to assume that the guy has some decent seat-time. Of course, he could be a total poseur and be fooling us all! But the odds are in his favor.

None of us were there and we shouldn't pass blind judgment.

Sometimes a funny picture is just a funny picture!!

You do NOT lose Karma points for calling an idiot an idiot. This guy needs to go back to the parking lot and stay off the scary twisty roads until he learns how to handle the bike.

I bet he bought the bike with the sticker already on it and it is his first bike. Put him on a Ninjet 250 so he can learn to ride. He his going to kill someone.

Because riding a ninja 250 instantly improves your riding skills? :scratch

At the pace he's riding there's no reason to have crossed the center line... on a left hander too. Turning too tight by accident would be stupid, passing on a turn like that would be stupid, and a mistake like that can have dire consequences, I don't care what you ride.

On the other hand, we've all big mistakes while riding which could have really cost us (and for some of us, it did).

VFR_firefly 04-17-2009 08:28 AM

If this thread doesn't belong in "perfect line" then I don't know what does...

This is the classic example of a MUCH too early apex and has n00b written all over it.

If I were that rider going the other way I'd have my 139dB Stebel blasting his ass a wake-up call to get the F456 out of my lane. Yes, it does sound like a train or big truck is coming right at you when you push that horn button. It scares the crap out of me when I push the button and I'm ready for it. He can clean his pants out when he finds the side (the OTHER SIDE) of the road and stops.

When someone finds out who this is there should be a sticker-stripping party...

The dude is an asshat, and is one of the prime reasons I currently have 2 people that I call to go ride. Until proven a non-idiot, I assume other riders ride in a manner that puts them and me at risk. I've seen this proven to be true too many times.

I agree with you about crossing the line when site lines are good, but I think this photo is just the other side of the same curve as the first photo. It sure doesn't look like it's got good site lines all the way through. It would seem that to be where he is now, he'd have had to of ridden on the centerline through the bad visibility portion of the corner.

...but maybe not, perhaps he's late apexing once he can see the line..

Monday morning QB: off.

Yeah, will give you that. I assumed a straight coming to the left I commented on. If it was say a 180 degree or better turn, then yes, he was placed well into oncoming traffic he couldn't see.

bwringer 04-17-2009 10:31 AM

Last time I was on the Dragon, it was slathered in scowling THP cops. Several asshat idiots like this one had caused a couple of nasty wrecks that day. :fitz

So I decided to go über-balls-out in the corners... but resolved to only use the right-hand part of my lane. I wicked it up to maybe 34mph on the few "straights".

There were several spots I was cranking a monster lean angle at all of 25mph, right in front of a cop wearing his best Village People mirrored sunglasses meanie face.

It was actually a hell of a lot of fun and excellent practice. Without much of a "line" to choose from, I had to concentrate on the techniques required to simply deal with the road surface, contours, and curves at hand.

CrustyAPO 04-17-2009 11:13 AM

Don't knock the Ninja 250. After 20 years on Honda V-Fours like the V-65 Magna, Sabre, ST1100 and ST1300 and finally the GSA, I picked up a 2004 Ninja 250 for $800. You can fling that bike around with the best of them. Nice thing is when a 600 blows by you in the straightaway, sure , he may beat you to the corner but he has to start braking for the corner sooner. That is when you can catch up to him (unless he's Ben Spies). On the 250 in the corners you can usually keep the throttle pinned and pass the bastard. The plus side, they are easy to maintain and repair, and don't break your budget if you toss it into a ditch or crack up at a track day.

NitroRoo 04-17-2009 11:39 AM

I don't think anyone was knocking the 250... maybe if you were coming into a corner too hot or the corner was tightening up more than expected - the 250 could help (light - easier to make last minute adjustments), but in this scenario, he's cornering too tight for whatever reason and I don't think the 250 would have helped... other than maybe what was said earlier - maybe he's intimidated by the bigger bike and the edge of the road.

PS I've been riding my ninja 250 for 2 years now and love it!

No excuse for that. That is how you get killed @ the Dragon.

There's no excuse for a lot of the stuff we all see out there.
Most of the time it's just from not paying attention, or letting your mind wander. Or just plain inexperience:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2005Apr21.html

"More Americans are riding motorcycles than ever as aging, affluent baby boomers recapture the "Easy Rider" dreams of their youth. In 2003, the median age of all motorcyclists in the United States was 41, according to the Motorcycle Industry Council. In 1985, the median age was 27."


I think everyone could benefit from a "refresher course"? (Myself included)
Just remember, the more stickers you have on your bike doesn't "make" you a better rider.

I have never once in my 35+ years of riding crossed the centerline while there was oncoming traffic that had to move out of my way while I was in THEIR lane.

This is NOT a minor mistake. It's pretty damn serious. In fact, it nigh unforgivable. This rider should have his moto-license yanked until he can demonstrate proficiency. At the very least the ADV sticker should be revoked. -yoink!

It could very well have been deadly. This isn't a missed gear.

Good thing it was a sportbike in the oncoming lane that could get out of the way instead of a panelvan. If it were, he'd be dead right now.

Yep, looks like he was going around a bike, but it is still not good going over the line. I scrolled through the Motard pictures and in the interest of fair play if you do so, you'll find pics of them on or leaning over the line also. The Touring or GS bikes don't have a lock on this type of riding.

I've gotten into corners too hot before and crossed the centerline while trying to scrub speed and get the bike turned. I'm a former expert level roadracer with lots of class championships to my name, along with a ton of accident free street miles under my belt. I practice safe riding techniques, consider myself a student of safe riding, and am here to tell you shit happens. Usually you get away with it and spend the next two months scolding yourself for the stupid move. Sometimes you don't and make the local paper.

So have you gone into a corner so slow that you had to cut across the center line to keep the bike upright?

Perhaps he got bored on his way to a game of Russian Roulette and thought he would liven the ride up a little, its a good job the sportbike rider in the picture was wide awake.

I agree. Of course we all make mistakes. Crossing the centerline is not a mistake, it is ignorant, unobservant riding.

If you have to cross center to scrub off speed to keep from killing yourself you were going too damn fast to begin with.

I, for one, will NEVER set tire on Deal's Gap. The place looks like a nightmare to me.

I agree, but I can't understand all the "too hot into corner comments", this is a frikken left hander. He wasn't too hot, he was cutting the corner. Look at his tires, he is headed back into his lane meaning he was even farther into the wrong lane a moment before. I'm sure that sport biker going the other way is pickin his shorts out of his crack.

Yep. If he had gone in "too hot" he'd be leaned over a fair bit more.

Vag?

FWIW, if someone has a photo of me like that, I'd like to know about it. If I'm making a mistake like that, it's something I want to correct. I work hard when I'm on and off the bike to improve my skills and lower the chances of a wreck.

Though it might be a little embarrassing, I wouldn't hide from admitting a riding error.

Or maybe someone's tired of a bunch of whiny cunts sitting around, sobbing and punching themselves in the genitals, getting bent out of shape when a rider puts a tire over the line someplace, sometime.

It happens thousands of times every day. Who gives a fuck?

Not likely- the shadow is perfect, there is no difference in the road texture of shadow/sunlit areas, and the white line through the GS windshield is distorted with the curve of the plastic. If it's Photoshopped, it's damn well done.

No, I think this is just a case of someone either riding a road above their skill level, or just a careless mistake.

Nice detective work, Clay! :lol3

Dbear 04-19-2009 07:14 PM

FYI, there are two different riders in those pics.

One on a GS and the other, in DirtDabber's post is on a GSAdv.

And that's all I'm allowed to say...

VFR_firefly 04-19-2009 07:30 PM

Ooooh, a nice clean license plate shot too. Now this is about to get interesting...

There were several spots I was cranking a monster lean angle at all of 25mph, right in front of a cop wearing his best Village People mirrored sunglasses meanie face.

It was actually a hell of a lot of fun and excellent practice. Without much of a "line" to choose from, I had to concentrate on the techniques required to simply deal with the road surface, contours, and curves at hand.

I have found at the Gap, that if you maintain a constant 35 to 40 mph (edit: in your own lane) you'll out run

99% of the people there. Especially the numb nuts that are wide open on the straights.

The first pic is the reason I haven't been beack in 3+ years, even though I'm

less than an hour away.

(plus there are better roads with nearly zero traffic closer to home :evil )

XPADREX 04-19-2009 07:38 PM

Shit- I was going to pretend it was me on the way back from picking up my new bike....

...but the license plate blew it.

It looks like Alton Brown...

Jamie Z 04-19-2009 07:47 PM

For you detectivy types.

It's probable that these two are together:

And the one in front has a distinctive plate:

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_GK7sNNy-4NY/Se...lipboard03.jpg

I guess all we gotta do is ask him. :D

Don't forget the guy taking the pictures. There are at least three people involved in this cover-up.

I'm glad you made it home safely from Dry Run. Will there be a ride report?:ear

I was at the Tail of the Dragon Easter Sunday, as well. I'm on the overloaded DR on pages 2 and 6 of killboy's motards-dirtbike-trikes-scooters pages. Traffic was relatively light up there that day.:deal

All the best,

If you can maintain a constant 35-40mph on that road you're either a liar or Mr. Rossi...
