So this guy is merely a Real Racer.


No thats not what was said. But as is normal on the net. some people see fit to take other peoples words
and twist them around to sound as stupid as the stupid one doing the twisting... :D

What was said was. Using both lanes if you have a clear view and it is safe you can go faster then using
just one lane. Of course the clueless will still write it how ever their small minds want to no matter what
was written" :wink:

Sure you can go faster but this is at the expense of good roadcraft and merely shows poor self discipline.... it is not good role model behavior from an elder of the tribe :gerg

Nope.....in the photos that precede that, you can watch as he goes into the corner in "cool mode"...foot up on the hw peg, left hand held out givin the cool low wave, and then he leans it over on to the engine guard, floorboard mounts, etc. Levers the front wheel off the ground, and away he goes !!

See your local hack club for the very best info and demos.

thank you that is helpful..

Sucks about the lady who got killed but i guess it shows why we harp on people crossing the double yellow.. we don't wanna see anyone hurt or killed. I can't imagine how many sleepless nights the guy in the truck is going to have now.

The "drag-on"
 
Geeze, no one learns from history! Sorry the lady was killed!

I'm not a fan of the Dragon. First there are better roads with less LEO's & fewer idiots.

I've rode the Dragon back when it was still dirt on the NC side, I've been on it at least 50 or more times & still never came to like it!

The rule I try to follow regardless is, a road is like money, don't borrow more than you can pay back!

Oh, another rule. There is no traction on paint, especially if it is wet!

As a road, it sounds OK, but it's become a tourist attraction. I "discovered" it in a car about 10 years ago (meander from Cherokee to Townsend??, The NC slope of the Smokies 'round to the TN slope). I may try it again sometime if I'm vacationing in the area, but I wouldn't make a special trip...

Putting a good monkey with a good pilot will have well ridden solo bike losing ground to the hack in tight places like the Gap.

Great stuff.


If you're really interested some riding schools that teach the MSF curriculum also offer the sidecar course *and* they have demo rigs.

I left your -5 in there because perhaps the rig of my dreams (K12RS with EML) would run away on the twisties (with a good monkey) but my current rig (1150 G) no so much.... :lol3

To go completely off topic in the next few weeks I'm going to re-do the alignment of my rig. That's harder than riding it. :wink:

Personally I think Sidecars rock, it's a full time party on three wheels. :freaky

It's like riding a unicycle... it's goofy, it's not real easy, it's lots of fun, and some people take it to another level (IOM) or that guy with the Mtn Bike unicycle.

I'd imagine it takes quite some talent to bring a girl home on a unicycle though :lol3

It takes real talent to make taking her home unnecessary. :D
